PS One More Thing Please, Dear Santa,


Would you please help me remember to count my blessings each and every day.

It's too easy to get swept away by the bad news we hear; to let fear take over; or, to let dissatisfaction sour life. Today, I celebrate that I am blessed to have a wonderful and supportive spouse; a son who has grown into a man we are so very proud of ; a snug and cozy home; a garden that makes me smile; and, the best friends a girl could ever want~here in town and all across the blogasphere.

Have a wonderful holiday week and may you all have enough love, friendship and celebration.

  6. So well said Gail. It's difficult to be grumpy when you have a heart of gratitude. Have a wonderfully merry and joyful Christmas. Btw, I love your cardinal in flight - very poetic against the snowy background.

  9. Those are truly wonderful blessings Gail. Sometimes we do need to remind ourselves. I was just doing that today ~ sometimes I think the holidays bring out a "dark" side when they are supposed to be so light and cheery! Merry Christmas to you. I count meeting you this year as one of my blessings. :-)

  11. So true. One of the happiest moments in my day is when sneak into my sleeping children's rooms and kiss them goodnight and thank God that I could be a mother.
    Have a wonderful holiday, Gail!
