Oh dear, it's amazing how time flies...
Life has been full of busy routines once again.
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving Holiday.
Mine was very special, as must be the case, when surrounded by friends and family :)
I love the chilly weather we have. It's true...Florida does get cold.
Not icy cold, mind you. My bones have trouble tolerating that kind of weather...Florida ruined me.
But it does get chilly enough down here that it just might have you racing to your wardrobes and closets for a snuggly sweater or blanket at the dawning and departing of each day.
My kind of weather.
My sister adorned our apartment will lovely Christmas cheer.
My mother's Christmas village, that us kids had built up over the many years by presenting her with one each Christmas, now resides with us.
I look at all the rows of quaint homes and shops and sometimes those pesky tears start piling up...reminded of our loss... but you know, also, I am just so grateful for all the fine memories that I can draw upon.
Lots and lots of good ones. So much love :)
Ohh and then there's the nutcrackers that stand at attention at their various stations.
Call me childish, but I still wish and wait sometimes, as the clock draws near to midnight, that maybe, just maybe, I might see a blink or two. Or a puff of breath escaping their slightly creepy, hinged mouths.
This is certainly a lovely time of year and there is so much to be thankful for.
I hope you take the opportunity to relish every moment.
Time slips by so swiftly, one's liable to miss much of it, far too easily if one doesn't take care not to...
Slow down. And thank God for all that he has blessed us with. And that we have a glorious future awaiting us to come.
Hope you don't mind, I had to share the photos below. They make me smile :) God bless pinterest :))
