Today I am grateful for visions of Christmas future. Believe in the Light and the power we have to share our love to create that future.
‘Tis the season … for enjoying good books! From our celebration to yours, we wish you engrossing reading. We’re grateful to authors past, present, and future for the gifts they give us every day.
I am grateful for each Christmas past. Wishing you, dear friends and family, sweet memories of Christmas celebrations.
I am grateful for Red, Lulu, and Matt Tavares for this story of love, determination, and miracles. We ALL need a miracle now and then.
We begin listening to Christmas Music on December 15th (when we can help it—walking through a store doesn’t count). We have over 700 Christmas songs on our Logitech Squeezebox, which we’ve been collecting for decades. The more obscure the better. Do you know “The Wexford Carol”? This version, sung by Alison Krauss and accompanied by Yo-Yo Ma, will put you in a contemplative mood. So beautiful! Take a few minutes to listen.
I will always be thankful for my roots in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. I was born there, I lived there until I was seven, and I spent every summer and holiday there until I was 16. It was my home, the place I still visit in my dreams. I breathe more thoroughly there. Growing up in a small town provided me with opportunities I didn’t have as a latch-key kid in the Twin Cities. This is a photo of Rice Lake with its 1926 Christmas decorations (before my time) that captures the spirit of this lovely gem in Wisconsin.
