I have just read post from the blogs I follow. Very moving, heart tugging, thought provoking! I sooo love this time of year. The little girl in me comes out. I love decorating, baking, making special gifts. I love it all! I love to start thinking, planning, making things in October. Not only to plan ahead since I am NOT a last minute kinda girl, but to make this holiday time stretch out over a couple of months. I hate when it seems to go so quickly.
There are several things about this holiday time that I wish I could bottle up and make last all year long. People seem to be more giving. Not only to those they love but to strangers in need. As I read the blog post I referred to earlier I found myself thinking about how these women are making a difference by one person starting and many others following. Yes I have heard all the great stories how one person begins something and makes a huge impact on society. I guess reading these post and thinking about how I love the spirit of giving this time of year....I have begun thinking about what I can do to keep this spirit of giving to continue throughout the year. Why can't everyday be like Christmas......aren't those words to a song????
I encourage you to find some time this weekend to sit by the fire in your favorite chair. Grab a cup of coffee, turn on the Christmas lights and read some of the recent post of my favorite bloggers and see how you are inspired.
