It is All About the Bears!

Hard to believe that Christmas is two weeks away.  We look so forward to it and then we blink and it is all over.

The last several years I have learned how to pace myself and to enjoy each moment of the Christmas holidays.

My Christmas cards are signed, sealed and in the mail.  This morning I got up early to tackle the post office to make sure that the my gifts make it to Texas before Christmas Day.  Priority mail should have them in the right home by the end of this week.

As I come and go from my house, I love looking at the Christmas wreath and my two lovely wooden bears, Custer and Dakota.  The bears with their cute red and white Christmas hats make me smile from ear to ear each time that I see them.  Sometimes it is the little things that bring joy to our lives. These bears bring me joy.

As you are rushing around trying to finish up cards, baking, wrapping gifts, etc., make sure that you take time to enjoy this Christmas season.

Just like the bears that are at my front door and they bring a smile to my face, find something that will also fill you with joy and help you to enjoy this time of year with everything going on!


  1. I know the lead up to Christmas is crazy and the whole thing is over in a blink and we spend Boxing Day recovering and then nothing for the next 11 months when we start to do it all again.

  2. Christmas will be different for me this year. The oral surgery recovery plan says not solid foods until after the first of the year. Sounds like turkey and dressing soup for me :)
    I hope you and your family have a delightful Christmas.
