I guess everybody is like me, trying to get ready for the holidays. I am not having much luck at it, the getting ready part of it, that is. I am wondering if I could possibly do all my shopping over the internet, thinking about the crowds at the mall almost makes me shudder. Should work since I am sort of addicted to EBay. Can’t seem to get up the desire to put the ornaments on the tree, should bake a few cookies, and put some lights up outside. If I don’t do it quickly, it will be too close to the day, that it won’t seem worth it. But what I am feelin’ good about is the reason for the season. I am glad I live in a country where I have three freedoms that I do.
My mind is not on a lot of words and thoughts today. Hopefully, next week. In the meantime, I continue to hope that you are happy and healthy and finding your own way to get ready for the season.. Happy Monday, well, almost Tuesday.
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens
