Time it was, and what a time it was

We had a gorgeous 7″ snowfall over the weekend (not the blizzard other cities got) and it made everything so beautiful and Christmasy — including my mood. We also had dear friends over for our annual Christmas gift exchange, so the house is actually neat and orderly — for a couple more days anyway, if we work at it. PLUS, my sister and nephew arrived safely on Saturday, despite flight troubles unrelated to the weather, AND my brother and sister-in-law are in town for the week.

So, a good time to count blessings and capture a few picture-perfect points in time.

Notice the snapshots (mental or actual) that strike you today — I bet if you look, you’ll be surprised at how many you see, and how happy it makes you feel.

Sweet dreams

A coworker once told me a story I always remember fondly, especially at Christmas.

Her little boy woke up one morning with a smile on his face. When she asked him what he had been dreaming about, he had a simple answer: “Cookies.”

May your Christmas dreams — and reality — be just as sweet.  Merry Christmas!
