Wherever you are

A shining star on my window
reminding me that from today
the days are getting longer!

A new wreath has been created and put on my door
to welcome all who come my way.

May the sparkle I have woven in,
bring the sparkle back to someone's eyes.

and may the softness of the yarn
offer some softness in a passing moment.

This angel  brings me music the whole year round
and just now, I like to listen to Christmas carols
as I prepare traditional treats.

Some home-made mincemeat made for mince pies
to be eaten from Christmas Eve onwards!

Time to take a break with a warm drink.
Won't you join me?

Wherever you are
Whatever your circumstances
Whatever your beliefs
May you be at peace with this moment
Just as it is.

For those whose families are scattered
and cannot be together,
My special thoughts go out to you.

Merry Christmas
Wherever you may be!
