Merry Christmas

I used to do a Christmas card like this every year. Mt. Garfield in snow was always my subject. I haven’t been so diligent about that the last few years and I won’t be sending out cards again this year. But, I did want to do something creative for Christmas since, because of work (or lack of work), I actually have the time. I also need to be mindful of how necessary a creative outlet is for my sanity.

So, this image isn’t a lot different from others I’ve done for past Christmases, but it is different. From now until Christmas, I expect to post a different image every day. I may add a new one, but for my entertainment, and as time constraints interfere, I’ll post images from Christmases passed, and I hope you will enjoy them as well. Some of you will be seeing them for the first time, though.

Each day, I plan to list things for which I am thankful. I need the reminder, and as busy as I get with my own disappointments and stresses, I don’t always remember that there is SO much. Therefore, my mission is to elevate my spirits through actively NOT feeling sorry for myself.

I hope you all have a lovely week and remember why we celebrate. It is because Christ was born that we celebrate; not that we snagged the perfect gift. No matter what your religious beliefs are, that IS what “Christmas” is all about. Of course, you may celebrate “the holidays” differently, but I celebrate “Christmas.”

And, for my own reminder, (and I first heard from Jethro Tull’s sweet “Christmas Song”), the Christmas spirit is “not what you drink.” (This, despite the fact that the last line is, “Hey! Santa! Pass us that bottle, will ya?”)

Here’s a link to a YouTube posting of that song:
