Ok - so I'm a few days late .... I want to get back on the track of posting on Sundays so I'm going to take a pass & combine last week with this week.... I know it's a bit of cheating but honestly, I have realized how extraordinary my life is this last week. So this whole exercise has started to do what it was intended to do - make me aware of the extraordinary things in my life.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.... And that makes me so happy - hands down it's my absolute favorite holiday. Interior decorations went up last weekend (hence why I didn't post last weekend...), spent the week doing some holiday preparations and this weekend the exterior lights went up. Just finished about an hour ago. I have some great friends who came over & helped me with the exterior lights. The house is lit, the palm trees are lit. The only thing is that my poor little lit reindeer didn't work this year. Oh well....now I'm just debating - am I done? Or do I need something to replace the reindeer?
In the spirit of Christmas, the postings in December will each be focused around either Hope, Peace, Love, or Joy.
This week - JOY!
I experienced the joy of helping others. My friends who helped with my exterior lights invited me over this weekend to help decorate the inside of their house. We had good food, nice wine, listened to great Christmas music, shared some laughs, watched the boat parade & all in all I had a joyous time. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get it all completely done (their house is quite a bit larger than mine) but we made significant progress and now it's looking like Christmas at their house too. I'm looking forward to this week and everything wondrous it will hold.
