Merry Christmas!


Open your hearts to joy. Love yourselves and your loved ones. Share a bit of your soul with the souls of the world, big or small (but especially small).

Be healthy. Be merry.

Also, be naughty, but be nice! (Santa’s watching!)

Have the best Christmas ever!

Here and there, I‘ve found images of vintage Christmas and they are my gift to you...

Merry Christmas!

I posted a tiny 100 word story on my blog, if you are interested in checking it out.

I can't take the 15 days a year happiness. For Gods sake why don't we reverse things and celebrate 15 days of being miserable and just be merry and happy for the other 350 days of the year?

I know it is a miserable thing to write and I should just delete it but this is the time of year when all the ghosts of friends who left me come back to me to remind me that once we too wanted to bless people and make life better for all. They are only in my heart now. I wonder if I am still remembered or those days?---No matter you, your family be blessed in each other and find that goodness is more in the color of the paper than thing underneath it.

Thank you, Bernard, and a very Merry Christmas to you too! :-)

Geraldine, you are so sweet! Thank you so much, my friend! Right back at you! xoxoxo

Thank you, Paul! Merry Christmas to you too! I've already read your story but I'll come over to write a comment... :-) I was very moved...

Mark, I know what you mean... but, unfortunately, we cannot reverse this, or not in a spectacular way... so I think we need to cherish what we have, including the memories of loved ones and lost ones, who make our hearts that much richer. Be well, my friend.

Charles, thank you! And you too! It seems Victorians were fascinated with nature hence these Christmas cards - I think they're lovely. :-)

Marilyn, I'm so glad to see you here. Thank you and all the very best to you too! :-)
