Merry Christmas Eve Eve Y'all!

Keller and her
"Cookie Bread Man House"
What a month!  It takes four times as long to accomplish a task
while using a pair of crutches to keep from hitting the floor!
So goes the last few weeks after breaking my foot.

Thank Heaven for Christmas Elves!
If it weren't for them, there would have been no Christmas Tree,
no cookies, no presents, and likely no clean clothes or dishes!

I must admit although the last few weeks have been tough
(not just my foot, but ... well, read the previous post),
my heart is full of grace towards myself for not
accomplishing that mile-long Christmas to-do list.
Many, many ideas were scratched, giving way to fewer,
less stressful endeavors, ideas and dreams. 
Less stress at Christmas.
What a novel idea!

What's on your Wish List this year?
Mine includes:

another fire extinguisher for the house
(precautionary - my neighbors' home burned down this week)

my kitchen knives being sharpened
(I do plan to return to cooking soon!)

a bottle of cod liver oil for my stocking.
(Vitamin D has bottomed out).

My family home for Christmas.
Joy - Laughter - Blessings!

Life is Good.

Be Blessed! and,
Be a Blessing to someone else!
