Tis The Season To Be Joyful
Sunday night I went to my cousin's house for dinner. There were several of us and everything was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the company exceptional. We talked and laughed and had a good time. They had a fire in their gorgeous fireplace.
Tonight was my annual cookie swap. There were only six of us, as two of the usual attendees had illness in their family.
Two of these girls are in my card group, two are in my domino group and on the left is my kindred spirit Carol. Her house was in the Country Sampler Home Tour, and we went on a field trip there in the fall. Remember?
Anyway that's what has been going on Through My Back Door. There are lots of cookies and mulled cider left if you would like some. It is truly a joyful time when you can be with people you enjoy.
Would you like to see a few more of the woodcarvers santas? I thought you might, so I took a few pictures.
I hope each and everyone of you are having joyful times with your friends and families too. Christmas is a time that we all should enjoy and love, and too often people get so stressed out they cannot enjoy it. I find that so sad as we miss so much when that happens. This year lets all strive to look for the joy and not strive so hard for perfection. Some of my favorite Christmases are when things were not perfect. I wonder if anyone remembers the ones I thought were perfect. I know we all miss loved one who are no longer with us, but this year I have decided instead of being sad about what no longer is, I am going to be joyful because those loved ones were in my life and brought me so much love and joy. I hope you will do that too.
Next week I have a special post coming up. It is going to be an exciting time and we are going on another field trip, with some special folks!!!! I absolutely can't wait to share this with all of you, my new friends.
Thank you so much for Coming Through My Back Door where life is good. I wish you a joyful week.
