Monday Smiles – 12/7/2015

As I said yesterday in Holiday Spirit, today was the designated day to find mine.  A week long mega-cold I brought home from Thanksgiving in Utah has mostly faded, so I’m sleeping better.  When I had Younger Eyes, I could manage on very little sleep but these days, it’s hard to keep upbeat when I’m not sleeping.   But today I was up early, took care of a little business in my office then headed off to our storage bin to collect our decorations.  And tonight, as I’m writing, the stockings are hung by the (decorated) chimney with care, Muri’s snowmen have made their way to their designated holiday places, and the wreaths are in place outside, quietly saying, It’s the holidays here, too, in the midst of the lighting extravaganzas along our street.  Mom would be pleased.


Tomorrow, the tree will go up and nothing says holidays to me like hanging fifty years of ornaments, each with special memories attached.   So, yeah, it’s Monday.  My Holiday Spirit seems to be back.  I’m smiling.
