1 MONTH TILL CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!
Yup I am like a little kid, I love the Christmas season, well I don't love the crowds but I do love the family time and the decorating and the general wonderful feeling the season brings . I decorate it all up with multi-colors and pure joy , and I even do some baking!
Family takes time to spend with one another , we sign the wonderful Christmas songs and hymns.I am blessed to have my family close and to be able to see them often , but it seems somewhat sweeter over this season .
I say Merry Christmas, not Festival , not Seasons Greetings , not Happy Holidays etc. And no person I have ever greeted with "Merry Christmas " regardless of race or religion has ever seemed to take offence or complain so I will continue doing so . Except for today ...
As I start decorating outside for this one time only I will say
Of note, these decorations are fairly old, I worked years ago in a program for adult survivors of brain injury .And these were a part of the projects they did in a day program. These were also the folks who I worked with when I was coaching Special Olympics so there is a very good chance that some of "my team " cut and painted these very deer, actually it is just as likely that I may have painted a few as I was helping them . So if you remember from years past how each of my decorations has a special history or memory for me you will see these are no different! But I added the "snow cap" and spots this year!
Stay safe and warm my friends ,
and remember Santa is watching!
