Merry Christmas!

I am grateful for the silence of winter mornings, for the beauty and wonder of the glint of sunlight in frost melting to dew, for the early-riser’s peaceful solitude that sets a mood of thankfulness, hope, and calm for the dawning day. ~Terri Guillemets, American quotation anthologist and author

First snowfall, winter 2017

I’m taking a few days off to do holiday things with my family, but I’ll be back soon. Love to all, Happy Christmas, and thank you for coming along on this blogging journey with me! I’ll leave you with an Irish Christmas Blessing:

The light of the Christmas star to you,
The warmth of home and hearth to you,
The cheer and good will of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you,
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you.

  1. Your snowfall is beautiful, and as are your thoughts. A blessed Christmass to you (see what I did there?) and say hello to Domer. Best wishes to you both for 2018. I noticed today the New Year’s snacks are front and center already — by January 2, they’ll have the Valentine Day stuff on the shelves. Resist! Enjoy the present– and the presents!

    • Thanks so much, Linda. Merry Christmas to you, too! I know what you mean about how they rush the seasons. Why, it won’t surprise me they’ll be showing swimsuits before long — and here, we have *months* more of boots, coats, and mittens, ha!

  2. What a gorgeous photograph of your first snowfall this year. It’s stunning! Beautiful poem too!

    Gosh, can you believe that Christmas is only two days away?

    Wishing you, Dallas, Domer, and your family a very Merry Christmas!

    Cheers and love, my friend!

    • Thank you, Ron. I’m sure that by now, you, too, have seen your first snow of the season — and you’re probably outside enjoying it immensely!! Merry Christmas to you! Don’t overwork during the holidays, and I’ll catch up with you soon. xx
