Coffee Thoughts...

The left overs are put away...if not already devoured, which is the case in our house...They just don't seem to stay around long...but soup will be made today!!! And now it is upon us....The Christmas season...I for one give in to some of the "commercial" aspects of it...I did go out and do the shopping frenzy on Black Friday (not so much for the "door busters" but for the feel of the holiday a gun being shot off at the beginning of a race!!) But, this year, now that I have that out of the way, I am going to wrap myself around the spirit of hope for the holidays...I have decided that my tree will be decorated in stars with messages of on them ...I will be making stars with messages as gifts to give for others also...This has been a very trying year for me in a great many ways...It has also been a year of learning and growing...of discovery and love...this year has been unlike others in that I have listened intently to my inner voice more...I have discovered strength that I did not have...and love that was locked away...I have found a way to continue forward even in the face of not knowing where I am headed at times or what is around the next corner...This season, of giving will be as homemade and as simple as I can make it...It will be filled with as much laughter and love as possible...and I will smile and sing as much as my heart will allow me to....This year I will be present...I will not be concerned with presents!! This year, I will rejoice in the life that I have...I will dream of the things that can be...and I will honor all that touch me...This year, I will be troubles...(and of course....a lot of coffee!!)
Artfully Yours,
