Farmhouse Christmas




Christmas is a feeling
memories,
foods,
lights,
places,
happiness,
elation,
lots of things,
let us all enjoy each one.





Just a smell can bring many feelings rushing to the surface.


Pine, 
Cedar,
Candles,
Cinnamon,




We might miss someone who is not here with us any longer,  think of them when we hear a certain Christmas carol...hum along or sing along, and it brings us a wistful smile.


We might wish to be with those that are far away...or like me, you wish you could be in TWO places at one time!


But being with the ones who are with us,


And doing our best to remember all those we can't be with...


Making this Christmas as wonderful as we possibly can...going that extra mile....not from obligation but from the heart.


That's what it's all about.


It's what makes Christmas, Christmas.



MERRY CHRISTMAS!  From my house, to yours!





AND....THE WINNER of the therapeutic RICE BAG giveaway is....

 Debbie (ASPIEMOM)!  

 And...

Just because it's CHRISTMAS, and I have several just waiting for new homes...

 I drew a second name
