And to all a Good Night

Wishing you a joyous holiday

May it be filled with enchantment

Treasured family traditions

Time spent with loved ones, hug them tightly 

Warm spirits

Holiday spices

Childlike wonder

And peace

"The snow turned all to pearl, the dark trees strung with pearls, the sky beginning to flow with such a radiance as never was on land or sea.  And the stillness everywhere..."
--  Gladys Hasty Carroll


May we find that stillness and peace within ourselves and all around us in the New Year.  More than ever we need "peace on earth, good-will to men."

"I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a joyful holiday season!  I am taking a little time off to enjoy my family and will see you back here in 2013.
