Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder

That opens up our eyes

To the unexpected gifts in life—

Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation

For the people whom we know;

Like festive Christmas candles,

Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,

A dash of Christmas food,

(Amazing how a piece of pie

Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;

Wrap it up in love and peace,

Decorate with optimism, and

Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,

We know we will remember

To be in the Christmas spirit,

Even when it's not December.

The next few days will be a whirlwind of travels, so I don't know how much I will be around (that is funny stuff right there, me not around is like saying I don't like carbs!)  Keep me in your thoughts as I have to face the FIL this Saturday - I just love traveling 3.5 hours to MI to be ignored.  *insert rolly eyes here*

Have a very Merry Christmas!!! I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts and prayers.

I hate to brag but I think I'm escaping the holiday without any family visits or traveling. I can't believe my luck!

Smooches! Love you!

I see you around everywhere I travel in Bloggyville, so I thought I'd say hi and Merry Christmas. I hope your visit turns out better than you think (sounds like you'd better take the recipe with you--maybe they need it there?)

Stop on by and visit me when you have some time in the New Year!
