What I Wish For You This Christmas

Dec 19, 2018

Well how quick has this Christmas come around, or
is it just me? I can't believe it's nearly time for the BIG MAN
to arrive.
So before we all get sucked into food comas and wrapping paper, 
 here's what I wish for you:

*the joy of finally "getting there" and the
realisation that what's not done can stay undone

*the joy of imperfections; perfection is over rated ;-)

*the joy of not missing the last mail collection

* the joy of always having someone to share "something"
with however small that may be.

*the joy of not caring which cutlery you are supposed
to be using and when

*the joy of sometimes being able to afford the thing
you really have longed for, rather than the thing that
will do

*the joy of kicking back and savouring the moments.

*the joy of belly laughs

*the joy of enough good memories to see you through any down moments.
Memories that will be etched in your memory forever (for all
the good reasons of course).

*the joy of having enough

*the joy of  finding the perfect present for someone and
being there when they open it

* the joy of a card from a long-lost friend

*the joy of spontaneous memories that happened
before you could even find a phone to capture the moment.

*the joy of amazement that is always better than you dared expect

*the joy of some quiet time-even just a few minutes
silence will be so refreshing

*the joy of sparkles everywhere

*the joy of  cheesy Christmas films

*the joy of meals thrown together in the
after-math of the big day as you decide to
channel your "inner Nigella".

*the joy of pyjamas becoming daywear (you
just now call it "lounge- wear").

*the joy of anticipation as you start to think about 
 dreams for 2019

*the joy of appreciating where we are and
excitedly anticipating where we would like to be

Finally I would like to thank you for 
the joy you give me as you accompany 
me in this humble space I call 
my blog. I am not a writer and sometimes
find it difficult to come up with anything of value.

In fact most days I can't even think of words to string
a sentence together .

So I appreciate every single one of you who make
time to visit. I know how "time-starved" we all are,
so it means even more to me to think I have people
even reading my ramblings ;-)

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and
nothing but the best for the New Year;
I also hope we will continue as friends in 2019
