Counting blessings

Counting my Blessings

IMG_1505

Traditional though it may be, I really don’t want to waste the time and energy reviewing my year.  If I’m patient a day or two, WordPress will do it for me, and those of you who’ve put up with me all this time deserve better.  What I do want to do is to say a heartfelt thanks to all of you!  It’s been a good year for me and I have many reasons to count my blessings.  Please know that all of you out there number among them.

You probably don’t need to look very hard to realise that I’m sharing the beauty of my daughter’s tree.  The hand-made trimmings give it away.  It helps to keep her near to me.  Sentimental old fool!

Not all of us have had such a happy year, yet most of us are survivors.  One such lady, whose beautiful post this morning caught my eye, deserves some Christmas love.  I hope that you are all as prepared as you need to be to spend a joyful Christmas.
