I haven't had much time lately to post anything, but I was just visiting Winifred's blog and reading her story of her missing purse and it changed my mood. After I added my comment the verification letters were scrugh. Ha! I took that as a sign for me to stop being such a bah humbug. I think this is the first year I may not get out the Christmas decorations. My favorite thing to bring out is the nativity scene I have and the advent candles. We are going on the third week of advent already and I think it is just too late to get it all out. I have zero Christmas shopping done and no Christmas cards ready to mail out. I do indeed feel like a scrooge. However, maybe on Thursday and Friday I will change my mind.
Winifred's story made me realize that it is just the little acts of kindness that make Christmas special. I did have something similar happen to me once. I lost a check in the parking lot and a kind person mailed it back to me, but with no return address, so I did not know who to thank. I was amazed that someone would take the time to do this. I enjoy hearing these heart warming stories.
This time of year is just too busy! I am thinking about a song from the 60's when I chose what to title this post. I can't think of the name of artist right now, but the main line in the song is "Slow down, you move too fast, you've got to make the moment last...something something...feeling groovy! So.... "Have yourself a groovy day"!
