"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

From Me to YOU

Just peeking in for
a few minutes to say hi.
I sure miss you all
So sorry that life has been keeping 
me so busy lately and preventing me from
visiting as much as I like in blog land.
I'm sure you are all very busy too, 
getting ready
for Christmas this week.

"Lion Heart"
Just listed this cute little guy in my etsy shop.
He isn't the least bit of a scary lion.
Rather, I think he is looking for someone 
to cuddle with.

Speaking of cuddling! 
I hope that is exactly
what each of you get to do this Christmas.
Cuddle with someone you love or with
many someones that YOU love.

Enjoy one another!

Merry Christmas to all of YOU 
and to your wonderful families.  You indeed
have already given me a most wonderful gift and
that is the gift of YOUR friendship.
You each have blessed my life
this year
in more ways than I can count!

I thank God for YOU.
May this Christmas find you
blessed beyond measure
with the love of family and  friends
and with the
overflowing joy
that only He can give. 

If I could, I would come and grab you to go
caroling with me. Then afterward we would go to my house
for some hot chocolate.
Wouldn't that be fun?

Oh that would be fun, to be swept up in your world for a time. I know you can hardly wait for the new year to begin so you will have all your family around you. So hold the magic and wonder of Christmas close to your heart!
Have a wonderful holiday

Hi! Lee Ann, the painting is for sure adorable! And it just expressed calmness to me. Wishing you and your Family a Merry Christmas, and Blessings for the New Year!

Mary said...

Yes, that would be totally fun!! :)

Lee Ann, your little lion has the sweetest look of caring and compassion on his face. I think your heart came out in it.

I have been blessed in knowing you dear friend.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

Grace and Peace

Love your curious lion
...looks so inquisitive.
Maybe the bravest thing
we can do
is open ourselves wide
to the wonder that is life.
Looks like your lion
is just that lionhearted:)
It's good to see your
smiling face
and know you're doing well.
I look forward to visiting your
etsy shop in January
when life churns slower
for me.
Merriest of Christmases
to you and your lovies,

Okay, the hot chocolate sounds good, the caroling...not so much. I'm too shy for that.

Your lion painting does look very sweet and cuddly. You and your sweetie look pretty cute too.

I hope you have a very merry Christmas my wonderful friend ♥
