Peace on Earth

He who has not Christmas in his heart 
will never find it under a tree. - Roy L. Smith

Here it is the first day of December and the Holidays are finding me busy with much left on a never-ending to-do list. Christmas cards to write and gifts to agonize over and hope Amazon delivers in time.

Still, I'd like to take a moment to reflect and ponder that there is more to Christmas than the perfect gift or the right party outfit. It is being peaceful and enjoying being with friends and family. Everything else will sort itself out, and if it doesn't, it probably wasn't all that important anyway.

  1. Hi Linda - being of a peaceful, diplomatic mind ... spring to my mind - as we so often need to think of others as we go rushing through December ... something I try not to do - but towards the end - the rush cometh. Love Roy Smith's quote ... "he who has not Christmas in his heart .. will not find it under the tree" - too true .. cheers Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary,
      Being peaceful is often easier said than done. That said, I'll give it a try.

  2. Your mindset sounds about right.. and your photo is lovely.
