Not Afraid to Say It!

Merry Christmas #1It is the end of the first day of December 2014 and I am not afraid to say it or shout it from the rooftops!  Merry Christmas!  I am not against Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings but there is only one holiday this season that makes me happy and that is Christmas!

So throughout the month I will randomly post pictures of Christmas and hopefully they will give you a little joy.  Remember, to pause in the midst of the busyness of shopping, cooking, gift-giving, present wrapping, tree hunting, ornament hanging, decorating, singing carols and everything else, to just breathe and give thanks.  There is a reason behind Christmas and I leave you with words of truth from ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas’ by Dr. Seuss;

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!

It Don’t Matter

What I say
What I do
Who I am
Who I may be
It don’t matter to you

What you say
What you do
Who you are
Who you may be
It don’t matter to me

We are each unique
Not quite the same
A beautiful tapestry
Of joy and pain

You be you
I’ll be me
We won’t mind
And let’s just all be free
