Breakfast in the Christmas Season


  If going out to a restaurant for breakfast seems too expensive, or your schedule is too busy to do that, why not prepare a pretty holiday table for yourself at home?

Some people would say it is ridiculous to set a nice table for one's self but nothing could be farther from the truth.


It's important to treat one's self with dignity and love.

A high school girlfriend, Patti, gifted me with the Johnson Brothers Christmas tree plates.

She knew they were among my favorites.

Patti has now gone to the other side of life but her dishes to me still add to my happiness every Christmas. 

(And I still dearly miss Patti.)

The mini ceramic lighted Christmas tree and three candles all add to the festivity of eating oatmeal with cinnamon, pecans, and raisins and drinking coffee for breakfast.

We have all heard that it's the little things in life that bring smiles to our faces and that's true, especially during the Christmas season.

Fluffy Pink Reindeer and Matching Tree


While shopping in a big box store, the holiday section drew me like a nail to a magnet.

It was a super stocked section.

Best of all, almost an entire wall happened to be dedicated to small ornaments for a Christmas tree.

 What about prices for those ornaments?    They cost only $1.98 cents each.

It was the kind of news that makes a person want to do the Happy Dance down the store's aisles.

A pink fuzzy reindeer on skinny wooden stick legs and a matching fuzzy tree both touched my Christmas-obsessed heart.


They look so pretty next to pink poinsettias on the buffet hutch.

The First Sunday of Advent


Today is the first Sunday of Advent.

This is a time of waiting for the Lord.

It's a festive time, for sure, but also pensive.

It gives us time, in the weeks ahead, to contemplate what it means for Jesus to come down to the earth in the form of a little baby. 

That very gift changed the world forever.  

May today, your Sunday be blessed.
