"And we should consider everyday lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh."
- Friedrich Nietzsche
Hi everyone,
Well it's almost Christmas again and we've been so busy that we haven't put up one Christmas decoration this year. I don't really decorate for Christmas much anyway, but I usually gather things from nature to make garlands and wreaths. However, the older I get, the more I know that Christmas is not about the decorations or shopping, the gifts or the eggnog. It's not about one person's religion or another. It's only about one thing, - "LOVE". Love seems to be the one thing we give too little of, and the one thing we all really "need". We need it from ourselves most of all.
My "love" to all of you on this perfect holiday!
- Peace,
P.S. - Let's all say a special prayer for our troops this holiday season. God bless each and every one of the them for their gift of freedom to us. Maybe someday there will be no more war!
P.P.S. - Kiss someone's whole face today!

Thank you Pearl,

Peace and Love is all that really matters. Thank you for the comment about the soldiers. My son is a U.S. Marine and spent 2 Christmas in Iraq and will be home this year for Christmas.

Bless you.

Thank you. sweet soul, for always making me feel good!

*giggles* That's darling(kissing the whole face)!

I'm terrible about Christmas decorations. But as I'm getting older I'm figuring myself out little by little (at least, I hope I am -lol). This year I figured out that my favorite color is "vintage" so the Christmas decor that we do have out, fits in that category. It's not a lot but it's enough that I can live with it.

Sending love back... Polly (& Steve)

Happy Christmas to you too! I'm with you on decorating from nature and yes, will say a prayer for our troops this Christmas time as they're never far from our hearts. I will kiss someone's whole face today... most likely it will be my dear pooch Zeke's face and then hubby's when he gets home :)

Merry Christmas! it is about love. Simple, world-altering love. I, too have had a hard time putting up decorations this year, but I must say, it hasn't altered my Christmas spirit at all!!!!

love + luck + bliss,
