"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!" Charles Dickens

It begins...this Christmas season...I love Charles Dickens, my favorite author..but most especially at Christmas, as he weaves his way through the lives of the simplest people...all just striving to make the season bright for family and friends...He reminds us of the days leading up to that Big Day..and the importance of helping each other out..

So as you move through this month thinking of plum pudding, Christmas caroling, perhaps a bit of snow falling on a dark winter's day...and Cherub's waiting...remember to take some time by the fire, have a cup of tea in your best china cup and think about all the gifts you already the spirit of this month...I send you good thoughts and much energy...and perhaps, if your really good, you to will hear those bells jingling late in the night on Christmas Eve...

Enjoy every moment...
