Moving me onward

Laying I’m bed watching “So you think you can dance.” I am thinking about a project requiring yarn, a vase, some glue & some time. I am also going to be making some new jewelry. If you have any buttons – please send them to me. I have a plan for your discarded buttons. I have ideas – big ideas – just wait and see 🙂

Christmas is the time to say I love you…

Here it is – another Christmas day. I am typing on the amazing new laptop given to me from my husband and my son and I am sitting looking at a mound of toys and lego boxes that would make Toys r Us pale by comparison.

Do I feel thankful? Oh you bet I do but it is more than the gifts that made my morning. It was the fire in the fireplace. The vanilla flavored pancakes. The coffee and the Christmas music. It was the joy of my son screaming in delight – yep screaming – over a toy he had asked Santa for but instead got from Mom & Dad. It was the ability to make dreams come true – that is a powerful gift. It’s hard not to get drunk with power when wielding it.

These are the Christmas days that Miles will remember. He will tell his children about them and they wont be able to believe it. These are the days to write about…

With the world the way that it is right now – with people shooting each other at Christmas parties and blowing each other up. It is so important to embrace the beautiful moments. The moments when you make someone laugh or cause them to catch their breath in surprise, or delight. These are the moments people – they do not come again…

So Merry Christmas to you all and to all a good night. Be safe and sound and hold each other tight. I am off to drink some coffee and have a Christmas cookie or two.
