As you celebrate Christmas, remember it is a time of sharing, love and re-union.Let’s make a difference in the life of at least one person, show love to somebody, say a prayer, send a gift, send a card,do something to put a smile on the face of someone.
My all time favourite thing is to know that I put a smile on somebody's face, even better when the recipient has no idea where it came from. It's always nice to keep them guessing. After having accomplished some of that yesterday, a stranger commented on the big Christmas smile I had on my face, nice that people notice.
I did sport plenty of smiles over the last little while, and even though times at work have been quite stressful and eventful, we never forgot the reasons why we are where we are and do the things we do. It sure is nice to share a common love, a common goal, common dreams and work together toward them.
I treasure most the cards I have received from certain people and the thoughts and love they shared, and knowing that they are real and not just words on a pretty card, as their actions have proven throughout the year.
The best present for me this year comes, coupled with the gratefulness to the higher power of having had a mild November and December even though it was very wet, in the from of the new barn for the donkeys. After many months of delays because of permit issues, the barn is looking more and more ready to move in every day. I can not express how grateful I am for the weather we have had and that the animals didn't have to share just little shelters to keep warm and that the emergency plan didn't have to be executed. I think we all are. This picture was taking mid week and by Thursday when I left the sides have been all up.
