We all have so much whilst others have so little. Sometimes the cash is a necessary and much, much needed that is understood...other times if we were all taking the quote to heart the world would be a better place to live in...and wouldn't that be a great thing. I attended the Comfort and Joy breakfast this morning for the Women's Crisis Shelters of Waterloo Region. It is a great cause and helps raise funds for those women that have to "walk away" from an abusive situation with usually not even their toothbrush in their hand and their children in their arms (thank God). Think about how much you have...and count your blessings and then go support someone less fortunate...even a smile or to help an old person with a door opening or a heavy bag goes a long way!

I have entered a competition on-line for holiday decorating. Wish me luck!! However whether I win, lose or draw and if I am last I am thankful for the opportunity and for the time and energy people put into these activities and the energy and excitement it generates... I am excited.

So I am seriously in the spirit now and off to decorate the tree next...pics will be posted no matter how it turns out...I have two elves that ARE the "boss of me" so a lot depends on how much they want to do and what will be left to my creative self...no matter what I know it will be the best tree ever, as usual.
It is a beautiful life ...in the week leading up to Christmas and only comes around once a year. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.
