Tomorrow's Christmas Eve!!!

That's right...tomorrow is Christmas Eve.   Last chance to shop!   I actually have to go to the grocery store tomorrow because I forgot a very important gift.

I hope that all of you are enjoying yourself, enjoying the season, enjoying the frenzy, enjoying family and friends, enjoying the preparations, just plain enjoying.

Have you noticed?   The days are getting longer.   True, only by a few minutes, but we are in the upswing of days with longer sunlight.   And before long we will be seeing these again...

Well, maybe not these exact flowers, but you get the idea.   And yes it's fun to plan ahead to our summer gardens and vacation plans.   

But you know what, that's in the future.  And what you have now is really all you have...NOW!   And now is important.  So whatever you're doing, whomever you're with, no matter if the house isn't perfect or that the holiday meal is a take-out from the local pizza place, or that you don't have all the gifts wrapped, or that not everyone is is the best time - the only time - you have to enjoy, to see the sacred in the ordinary, to feel the love that's like a big teddy bear hug.

So please, take the time the enjoy yourself.

I'll see you on the other side of the New Year...

Thanks for visiting...
