This card is one of my favorites. I received it from my very dear friend, Millie, from St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The artist is Anne Miller.
Why? Maybe because it reminds me of the years that I lived in St. Croix and the simplicity of life it portrays. Children seem to be happy with so little. And also to me it reflects the real reason behind the holidays. It is all about the relationships among ourselves and the joy of visiting with each other, either via email, mail, telephone…and now…Facebook. It is all about all of us and how we interact with each other. The stuff…is just that…stuff.
I love the little house and the joy on people’s faces.
Another magical moment towards the countdown for Christmas…at least for me.

Welcome to my sun room! This is my humble Christmas tree I enjoy while I am sitting there either meditating, reading or just sun bathing with the 1/1000 of an inch of sun light that comes into this room. Life is not perfect, neither is that little ball/ornament hanging there too low. Don’t have photoshop. So low it stays.
By now, I am sure a lot of you already mailed all your Christmas or Holiday cards, completed all your shopping, there is nothing left on your “To Do List” and you are just waiting for December 25th to roll around.
Well…about me…my back is really killing me from so much decorating. My hair looks like it has not seen a comb in the past few days…and yes, I did change from walking sweats to house sweats. That’s about it. I have one large box with all my Christmas decorations and even taking them one by one was a chore today. But mission accomplished…a few red bows to place around and even my bathroom is all decked for the holidays. Me? I am just breathing. Tomorrow will be another day.
And here’s another corner of my small kingdom..
Love my nutcrackers…they have so much personality.
I’ll save my front door for another day…until then…I am falling asleep and it is only 7:35 pm, EST.

“It is that wonderful time of the year…ding dong…ding dong…”
