She turned, golden hair glowing in the sunlight
We stood far apart contemplating each other
And then continued walking in different directions
Enjoying our day out on the prairie.
We need to take a moment and look into our lives as the holidays all approach and not be overwhelmed with them. I always look for continued happiness and hope all of you can take a little time and do the same. I took my van in for servicing last night and wandered through a huge shopping complex looking through the stores.I laughed thinking of standing in the Barbie aisles,wondering what my children didn't already have. Then I realized there were many who didn't have a whole lot for their holidays, so we gathered a variety of dolls my kids liked and placed them in the Toys for Tots box, teaching my children the true meaning of the holidays. This expanded each year, and we soon had this as part of our family tradition.The trees with wish cards are fun for me, it only takes a small gift to make someones life happy. Remember when you are enjoying the holidays with those close to you that the gift of love is the most precious gift we receive in life and have a great holiday season.
