Wishing You Merry Christmas


A warm morning
with showers.

My world by the edge of the woods
is very still as I wait for darkness to end.

Thanking each of my special online friends
for your friendship, special friendships
that just seem to appear are a gift to me
at this time of life as so many are no longer here
and
my special children and grandchildren for
the joy they bring me.

We all have so many blessings,
 may we always focus on them
and grow from those things
that seem to sadden us.

This year seems to have gone by so quickly
and a new one will soon begin.

For this one
every day is precious...

I've come to enjoy/appreciate your thoughts and am happy to receive your Christmas wishes AND return them :)

These lines especially feed my thoughts today: We all have so many blessings, may we always focus on them and grow from those things
that seem to sadden us.

Thank you for the gift of them.
