Holiday poinsettias

How quickly the year has gone by.  Here we are once again at the wonderful season of Christmas.  No matter what one’s faith, there is a specialness to this time.  If we look past the pressure to shop, the expectation of finding the perfect gift, any anxiety over meals, cookies, etc., there is still a child’s unbridled excitement over the mystery of the holiday.  I encourage us all to focus on the joy and beauty that surrounds us at this holiday time.  Our spirits can be lighter and we can be of good cheer, and with a bit of encouragement that attitude can become contagious and spread to many.  May you find and rekindle the joy and happiness that can reside in each of our hearts and spirits during this time of year, and may you keep that alive within you as we all prepare to begin 2011. Merry Christmas!

    The photograph is lovely – you have captured the softness of the petals reminding us to be gentle as we go. Thanks for the welcome thoughts.
