CHRISTMAS MUSING & MY GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST

This is my favorite time of year. I love all the possibilities of miracles and magic. I have a pep in my step and I am always singing a Christmas song...songs! My smile is wider and brighter...1000 watts! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

As I walk through my house and see all the decorations. The Christmas tree, the Santa's, the wreaths and bells and all that red and gold. I am delighted. I love ornaments. I have been collecting them since I was a new bride. I have ornaments from places I've travelled to far and wide. I have every ornament each child has made and I lovingly put them on the tree each year. There is no theme to the decorations...very eclectic. Each year at the end of the season we hunt for bargains on ornaments and decorations for the next year. We set a dollar amount, we buy things that are at least 60-80% off and tuck them away for next year. I think we look forward to bargain hunting more than anything else. We get things that we wouldn't dare pay full price for.

So this is the season of Joy and wonder. I feel it. I love it. I am like a big kid too. I LOVE presents! Doesn't matter what the present is! I love getting gifts LOL!

What a beautiful post. I needed to read something uplifting and this is it.

Girl your Christmas list items are so possible.

i haven't quite gotten into the holiday spirit yet, i guess being raised Muslim makes Christmas a bit abstract for me...but I always dig the fact that people seem to actually smile more and be more loving this time of year.

You've inspired an idea. I'll have to call you and run it by you to see what you think.
