Christmas Quotes

Glad I did get some time to pop back and post again. I was starting to feel this weird 'Christmas lonely feeling' that I get each year....I found The next quote and it really sums it up.~
'Isn't it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for - I don't know what exactly, but it's something that you don't mind so much not having at other times. ' ~Kate L. Bosher

In spite of this sinking in my heart, I've been baking up a storm, doing some last minute wrapping and finishing up ironing Christmas outfits, next I need to write out some bills and even though I've been working like crazy... I am singing and smiling and I feel like it is all so enjoyable! ~
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Wouldn't the world be so much more Peaceful and beautiful if we could all keep the Spirit of Christmas in our hearts year 'round?
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself... ~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976

Finally, Here is what I thought were the perfect Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect. – Oren Arnold

Wishing that Everyone finds their Christmas Spirit and may we all make an effort to consciously be the very best people we can be each and EVERY day of the year, in doing that, we will be able to feel that Christmas magic in our hearts year 'round! Merry Christmas xo

You are definately a woman of substance ms Petals.... very profound quotes. I always enjoy your wonderful candor.

But Lucy you have tinsel....oh my goodness....tell me it's because you have boys....why do boys LOVE tinsel??... all the women I know hate it for the mere fact they find pieces the next august...in the oddest places.. Where as their husband and my ex, loved it. My house is a tinsel free zone...but I LOVE LOVE your tree. Is that a ninja turtle on the tree? Bryan would love it if it is! I need to search for a vintage one for him! ..oh and I see Dorthy....is Toto there too?

Hope you feel a little less lonely, and a lot more joy this season!

Much love Giggles
