Sunshine and Cold

The sun is shining this morning
 although it is cold here in New York!
I am looking forward to this Christmas weekend
 and spending time with our family and good friends.

We will be seeing our special little girls on Christmas Eve.
They are so excited as they wait to see what Santa will bring.

 Thanks to all for your kind and encouraging words.
I am filled with gratitude for my many blessings and
 appreciate the reminder to be present in the moment
 and plan on making many new happy memories!

Starting with making some Christmas cookies...
I'm off to the grocery store for more sprinkles!

"May your holidays be filled with reasons to be thankful.
Having loved and having been loved
is perhaps the most wondrous reason of all."

These words are from a newsletter put out by Hospice of the Valley
 and were sent to me by Cathie...a  thoughtful and kind follower of 52 FLEA.

Love to you all!

The weather is finally feeling more Christmassy around here, too. It's so hard to believe that it's just days away, isn't it?!

I hope your time spent with loved ones and good friends is filled with bountiful joy. ;)

Merry Christmas, Laura!

Merry Christmas, Laura. The older I get, the more I realize the greatest Christmas gift is spending time with loved ones. Enjoy your special little girls.

I am in Orange County, NY - noticed you said you were in NY too, what general area. Now, I am also having a mind cramp that we may have already discussed this, but I am not sure! Aaah! My mind may be going to mush!
