Hope Your Christmas Was Merry and Bright



Hello, Dear Ones. I do hope you all made some wonderful memories yesterday as you celebrated our Jesus' birthday.




I feel so blessed and I do not take those blessings for granted. 



Love and joy, peace and light!

The family, the food, the smells, and fun, the memories, even the presents...make for a wonderful day!


Just a short little post filled with love and also to remind you of my giveaway with the winner to be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 28.   Click HERE if you'd like to enter. Oh, and I've got to start putting up all this Christmasing! :)


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ I think this still applies :)

My Grownup Christmas List

Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies

Well, I'm all grown up now
And still need help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown up christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up christmas list

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree

Well heaven only knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up christmas list

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, oh
This is my grown up christmas list
This is my only life long wish
This is my grown up christmas list
