The perfect combo!!!
This time of year.....actually pretty much all year, I honestly feel as though I am always busy, and can't seem to catch up with life. But there is something special about Christmas time. There are so many extra little treats to enjoy. Snacking on scrumptious Christmas cookies from friends, laughing with my girlfriends in a restaurant decorated with a thousand twinkle lights, happy Christmas music playing in my living room while I create.....I have learned that if I take the time to enjoy the little things, like sit back with a cup of delicious hot tea, and just breathe, everything seems easier. The urgent matters don't really seem as important as I thought, I still get everything mostly done, and I enjoy the process so much more. I have been a very go, go, go person, most of my life, and recently have had to change. For me, life is just sweeter because of it, and I am very grateful.....grateful for all the little things, grateful for this time in my life, grateful to just live. My dear friend Gloria gave me this lovely mug as a Christmas present, and I am in heaven right now.....I breathe in the sweet aroma of the tea, and when I am done drinking every drop, I look forward to waking up in the morning and doing it all over again :)
