Christmas All Year Long
Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.
 
Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.
 
Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)
 
Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in Luv and Peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.
 
If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December!
 
All the best to You and Yours ~ Peace and Luv,

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday #132-51!!!  The sponsor of this week's sketch is Bugaboo Digi Stamps!  I just love Ruby, who happens to be wearing an amazing outfit here - wouldn't you say?!!

I have several people on my holiday card list that like purple just like I do, but it's kinda hard to incorporate it in.  Thankfully Ruby seems to wear it well, and I can cross another one as done from my list!

The winner this week will get 7 Digi Stamps that value $21!!  That's a fantastic prize and there are so many images to choose from for all kinds of holidays, that it won't be easy to choose.

Thanksgiving is here, so my mind has turned
To what time has taught me, to what I’ve learned:
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we’ve shopped and bought;
We take our pleasure in material things
Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We’d see the foundation of each happy day
Is special relationships, constant and true,
And that’s when my thoughts go directly to you.
 I wish you a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget,
Full of Peace, Luv and Joy—your best one yet!
