Random Thoughts On Christmas Eve

I could express my feelings on War and Peace,
but, I never read Tolstoy, so I’ll pass
on sharing my intellectual ignorance.

I’m not praying/hoping/wanting a White Christmas,
I live in the South by choice, but snow
on post cards, photos and movies is beautiful!!

I believe in the Christmas Story, I was raised so.
If I didn’t my mother would come out of the grave
and that’s a conversation I’m not ready to have.

Silent Night is my favorite Christmas carol.
Besides being heart warming, I think silence is
where God resides, and the world needs more of both.

I appreciate the support all of you have given me
on my blogging adventure this year. I have very much
enjoyed getting to know you through your words,
poetry, wonderful paintings, photography and stories.
Don't forget the less fortunate; remember the soldiers.
And above all else be kind to yourself from this Christmas forward.
God Bless!!

It is the feeling of Christmas that I love most, not the presents, but the music, the smells, the smiles. Good to have met you Pat, love your words, and hope to enjoy them in this new year. Love and peace, your friend Nea.
