Christmas Scenes.....

Posted by Picasa



....it was wonderful with loved ones here. It was special as always to spend time with family. Not everyone could be here and they were missed. Our dinner and celebration is always on Christmas Eve. Some stay, most go home to be tucked up warm and cozy in their own beds for Christmas morning.
I hope that all who stop by here for a visit had a wonderful celebration. I think of all who have lost a loved one recently and know how difficult that is at this time. May you find comfort and solace.
May everyone, no matter who, no matter where in this world of ours, find comfort, joy, love and peace in the New Year. May we learn, all of us, to love and care for people throughout the world...I truly believe we all hope and pray for the same things...Peace, freedom, joy, health, safety, hope and purpose to do the things that are right and loving for all beings.
We are all here together in this beautiful gift that we have been given: Life and Mother Earth. Let us all pledge to take care of one another, our Home of Homes. May we truly begin to be the Family that was meant to be.
Best to all!
