Our forever tree which stays up all year as a reminder Christmas isn’t once a year it’s everyday. If we treated people all year as we do that one day the world around us would probably be so much better. Not giving gifts that can be unwrapped but giving the gifts of genuine kindess,courtesy,respect and love. Coming together often to share a wonderful meal with family and friends.
The temperatures have dropped and at my last checking it was 21°, though we have central heat I love a fire in the fireplace. A fire seems to make the home cozier,more inviting to our senses and most relaxing. I can get lost gazing into the fire forgetting what bothers me or even what I need to accomplish in the day as I sit sipping tea feeling warm and fuzzy from inside and out.
