A Recipe for Christmas All Year Long!

For many of us Christmas comes with memories. Memories of joy and memories of sadness.We lost my husbands dear mother this year and we lost a dear friend. We will forever cherish them in our hearts and remember them forever, they will be missed.

Recipe for Christmas All Year long;

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up your 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 love 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.

My memory goes back a long time, when Christmas was just a little tree with real candles. A bucket of water always on hand, just in case.One year we were celebrating Christmas at my mothers sisters house with my cousins and suddenly the Christmas Tree was on fire. My aunt was living on the second floor and we had to open the window and had to throw the tree two floors down to the ground. You can imagine when the neighbors saw this tree in full flames pass their  window. 
We were thankful for the nice simple dinner my mother prepared and played games the whole day. We would sit around the table and play monopoly or cards. I remember the laughter and the snacks my mother prepared. 
I will forever cherish these memories.

Merry Christmas to all of you, may Happiness and Health comes through your doors.
