A Beautiful Day

It is a sunny 34 degrees at my house this morning. As I sit beside my Christmas tree this morning and drink hot chocolate out of my snowman mug,watching the birds and squirrels out my window I am reminded of what a beautiful world and life we have inspite of all the problems that we all face.
Today I choose to think on only the blessings I have in my life, and they are many although sometimes I let the cares of the world cloud my eyes from them.One of those blessings are the special friendships I have made in this blog land and one of my New Years resolutions is to spend more time this year on blogging. I have been guilty of letting life get in the way of spending time here in this wonderful place that the Lord sent me at a time when I really needed it. I hope that I can give back to others what has been given to me.To all my special blogging friends thank you for being here for me when I needed you so much.

It is 19 degrees in Florida !

I woke up this morning to a cold 19 degrees,if only we could have snow too!
The sun is coming up and it will be a beautiful day. The weather man says we will be back in the 60's tomorrow. I know that the snow and cold can be hard on those of you in the North,but for a Florida girl it is so nice to get a little of it here.

Christmas Day 2010

It is Christmas morning! A cold 29 degrees at my house,the sun is coming up and its going to be a beautiful day. Its a little different than the past Christmas days for me.We had our family celebration last night with the children,grandchildren and extended family at our home. We have always in the past done this on Christmas Day,so this Christmas Day I am actually home alone, Jim offered to work this morning so others could be home with their family today,since we had ours here on Christmas Eve. I am actually enjoying this time, reflecting on the wonderful time we had last night,watching the excitement on the faces of my Grandchildren as they opened gifts and the delight of others as they ate their favorite foods I prepared with each of them in mind. I am also remembering the past Christmas mornings and those family members who are not with us but in Heaven on this Christmas Day and looking forward to all the CHRISTmas Days in the future to celebrate the birth of our Saviour and enjoy with all our loved ones. Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
