Lady Travels Towards "Joyeux Noel"

Welcome to my home
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
CHRISTmas is here, bringing good cheer!
I hope this is what you are humming today.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Daughter Jacquie's gift to me from
Anthropologie, one of my favorite shops!
My halls are decked with boughs of holly,
  ice skates are scattered,
and loads of laughing snowmen everywhere.

The calendar is full
and yet I will find time
for ultimate quietness
to give thanks to the Lord
for all He has done
throughout this past year.

Country French is my cozy preference
(I have since removed this table and chairs to
create my 'dreaming corner')
As you gather with
family and friends,
remember to give them 
extra hugs and kind words.
Life is too short to 
forget the small, sweet
acts of kindness.

Believe.  I spell it BeLeaf

Writer's Note:
I'm a writer who doesn't 
write as much as I should.
However, I spent the past two hours
writing and then submitting
a 500-word essay to a contest titled
'I Inspired Someone to Take A Risk and Be Gutsy!'

I wasn't aware that I had inspired anyone,
until a lovely lady from my past,
Regina Martin Huaracha,
notified me to give me the news
that I had inspired her!
And to my surprise, it was announced that
I WON the contest!!

I shall include the essay on my next blog,
I'm not meaning to 'ring my own bell'
but I want to make you aware that 
someone is watching you.
You just might be someone's inspiration.

I wish you oceans of Christmas blessings!

Thank you, dear Sydney, Deborah, and "Decor" (your cute nickname). Guess what? I found out yesterday that my gutsy story won! I'm a winner!
So go ahead, I dare you to be gutsy today!
