New Year’s Eve is Slithering In

Tomorrow night will be “the night” for big celebrations and many anticipations of “a better year” for others.

Some want to see the year end because of sadness and they long for the hope of a brighter future. Others want to welcome in the New Year with the expectation of additional joys to come.

Regardless which group you are part of the anticipation of moving forward in search of joy remains with all of us.

Happy New Year to everyone and make you have peace and love in your life.

What’s More Magical than a Christmas Tree

Ever since I was a child the Christmas tree has appeared magical to me. When I was young we had large bubbling lights that looked like candles. Then we went to the small oval type old fashion Christmas bulbs which I still use to decorate my tree.We hang small trinkets that were attached to presents over the years, i.e. a basketball for one young son, an ornament that says broken leg for the year my mother broke her leg, etc.

 Of course, only an angel will do for the top of the tree.

 Now my grandsons enjoy these memories with us.
