Things I Love Thursday
First up, MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone in the antipodes! Hope you’re enjoying the warm weather & having a fantastic day. There is still lots of snow on the ground here & though the sun is out, it sure isn’t warm enough to melt it!
Okay, so I know that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but even if you don’t get into tree-trimming, carols, turkey, etc., it’s a great time to sit back & reflect on the year. Think about the myriad of blessings in your life, how much you’ve achieved & how far you’ve come. Think of all the people in your life who love you, all the amazing things you’ve seen & great songs you’ve listened to. Then pile it all up in your heart & smile!
Here’s my list of lurve for the week… the second-to-last TiLT of 2009!
