A Very Merry Christmas



For the past four years, every Christmas has gotten better and better for me. I haven't enjoyed Christmas this much since I was a child. This year is better than ever. I am so blessed with my husband, children, family, friends, and pets. I know it's really hard this year for so many people, and I am so grateful for everything that we have.


Because we have Enough. We don't have extravagances, we don't have many luxuries. But we have Enough. And to all of my blog friends, this Christmas...I wish you Enough.


I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.


I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.


I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.


I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.


I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.


I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.


I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."

Merry Christmas!

So glad you had a nice Christmas too. We have ENOUGH and more than enough and that's a good thing, even if we only have one internet port for four computer ;-( But what a luxury that we even have four computers!

Big hugs to you and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new blog design. Very pretty.
