Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is LEON Day. LEON is NOEL, spelled in reverse, and noel is French for Christmas. Guess what! Christmas is exactly six months from today.
Happy LEON Day on June 25th. Holiday shoppers, start your engines!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon.
With Summer just beginning, not many of us want to think about Christmas shopping right now. It’s a fact though, Christmas is just 6 months away from today. Knowing that I have a large family it would be good for me to get a head start and get busy making some gifts, but I try not to start until after July 25th as that is when Christmas in July is celebrated. It usually takes me that long to get it all done.
I really want at least a month just to enjoy summer. Yesterday evening I got together with my dulcimer buddies. The two friends I have that I meet up with once a month, April through December to play our mountain lap dulcimers together. Yesterday though, we’ve decided to do a little something different. One of them has a great collection of games of all kinds, so we played some games instead. We’ve been doing this a long long time so may it was time for something different. The picture above is of dulcimer in case you didn’t know what one looks like. It’s easy to play and lots of fun.
Don’t forget to take some time out for play. We all need it no matter how old we get.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.
John Archibald Wheeler
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1700 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1793. for my porch, a wonderful place to be
1794. for time just to enjoy summer
1795. for friends to have fun with
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
