I have got to be better at posting! I assure you that my absence in no way reflects my love for Christmas. Just last Thursday I spent the day with a Christmas marathon of movies. First I popped in Fred Clause then Prancer then Frosty the Snowman (yes, it is a cartoon...) and finished it off with Elf. It was the most productive cleaning day I have had to date :) My kids don't even roll their eyes anymore. They just come in and say, "Elf huh".
My sister-in-law Melissa, sent me Christmas CD's for my Birthday in February. I have one in the car, one in the CD player in the living room, and one in our bathroom. The feeling I get while listening to them is amazing. Being surrounded by Christmas in so many ways just makes me happy. And why on earth would I not want to be happy?! It is what ever floats your boat and for me... it is a Christmas boat. One with lights, painted red, and a Christmas tree at the stern. Okay, now I am getting silly :)
Do you have something that makes you smile? Something that you know will brighten your day? For some it may be a relaxing bath at the end of a hard days work or a massage at one of those fancy places. Maybe even a pedicure... Oh but for me it is Christmas. The smell of a pine tree, the twinkling of lights on a Christmas tree, the smell of cinnamon, or the melody of a Christmas tune... Ahhhh, I am so happy :)
Thank you for coming by Whispering Christmas Dreams!
Happy Birthday!! As Frosty would say, or Merry Christmas!
