Today I finished the post work from a wedding and decided to treat myself and get some pansy
plants to fill up my flower boxes. It always soothes my soul to dig around in the dirt, specially after a rain. I love this time of year.........the colors of the leaves laying in my front yard give me so much joy, the smell of fall in the air and the prospect of all the holidays to come.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are almost here and I am starting to think that I might just put up
my little Christmas tree after the 27th of this month just so I can enjoy it most of December.
Everybody that knows me well also knows that is totally against my believe..........because I never put up a tree until the week before Christmas, but this year I will break away from what I have done for most of my life. Maybe putting up a tree early will give me the hope ........ the hope for a better new year for everybody in the world, we all need to believe that there is HOPE that things can change again and with that hope we need to move forward and do our best to help each other through this difficult time.
Let's be thankful for all the things we do have..........family, friends and the joys the past year brought us. I want to wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving just in case I don't get a chance to post another message in the next couple of weeks.
