Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas


I wasn’t going to post this weekend.

I have Thistlekeeping scheduled for Monday.

But I couldn’t stay away.

I couldn’t let one more second or minute or millisecond pass before wishing each and every one of you the greetings of the season.

So from our family to yours, may your day be full of joy and happiness, may your holiday be full of wonder, may your heart be full of light and may your home be full of the welcome of family and friends.

Merry Christmas

love, the Woods 🙂

  35. Merry Christmas Girly! Its a slow day here! I’m fighting really hard with my RA …trying not to have it rear it’s ugly head. So I’m trying to finish up what I can and let go of what I can’t. Having RA makes you edit your delusional mind. The delusional mind goes way overboard thinking Christmas isn’t perfect till all the lights are strung, everyone gets everything on their list no matter if the stores are out of stock, ginger bread house are decorated and the endless ideas it can create. But it’s Christmas, a celebration of the birth of Jesus, no matter how elegant or simple. It’s always the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

    • Claudia, Merry Christmas! Hope you’ll feel better. I have RA so I understand.
      It’s all about the birth of Christ. What we get done, great, and what we don’t, no one will mind. It’s simply about Christ and sharing the beautiful day with those we love. My prayers go out to you for good health. Blessings.

  36. Merry Christmas and lots of love right back to all of you. May the Blessings and light of our Lord be upon all of you and your home. Peace.

  37. Merry Christmas! Blessings to you and your family!!
