Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 2008

As Christmas rolls around again, I wonder where the year has gone. As I get older, time does go by so much more quickly. As I get older I appreciate the simpler things in life: a kind word, a smile, a gesture and true friendship.

To all the friends I know through this blog and email and to those who I may not know as well, but who still drop by regularly to read my meanderings - Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. Winter holidays, no matter what they are called or what the traditions around them, give us time to sit back and reflect on life and love.

And now one of my favourite pieces of seasonal music sung by Aled Jones in 1985 and the theme song from The Snowman.

Merry Christmas Jeanette.

Thanks for all your wonderful posts in 2008 and I'm so looking forward to seeing you work with watercolours in 2009!

Have you spotted yourself on my blog recently?

Merry Christmas Jeanette. Hope you got the tree and put it up!

Hope there are days of relaxation and fun ahead....

Jeanette said...

Teresa, Merry Christmas and thank you.

Merry Christmas Katherine, I'll keep working on those watercolours and yes I did notice me on your blog! I'm impressed and honoured to be nominated.

Rose, Merry Christmas. Yes, the tree got up just in the nick of time :) I look forward to a bit of a break from work now, so I can concentrate on making art.

Thank you Jeanette, for bringing a smile to me this early morning. I hope you had a great Christmas and that next year will also be filled with good things coming your way.
