The Giving Season

Once welcomed, onced run toward, not so welcomed during this chapter.
Tradition, I depend on it, it is my balance back to centre.  Bringing out this families well
worn trinkets, I have decided this is the last year of the memories TREE!
The tides are pulling out and away.  I am waving, tearfully from the firm ground.  
And that is the secret!  In every family, no matter what " the family" is, there always needs to be 
a familier, friendly, unconditional, respite.  It doesn't have to be a building, or location, but
someone or something, that draws and calms.
That's all I have for pearls this year.....I do know my word for next year " Change"  I feel
it as a certainty mote it be.

All of you mean so very much to me, thank you for your kindness, inspiration and friendship!

A Very Very Merry Christmas , hold those you cherish close, hug more often ( I don't, only children)
and set an all are a creative punch, use your imagination! 

I will leave you with my memories tree, ( Rosa Lily handcrafted soks and all) my daughters tree, 
featuring her kittens new hiding spot, and my sisters enchanted forest theme tree....

The Puddleducks will be giddy on Christmas morning I'm sure, they all are growing
way to fast.  Their parents ( my children) continue to amaze me, wondering " who raised these
clever adults? ".   Believe me, there is a force greater than us , guardians ( Angels) 
who will guide, if only we pay attention....( I full of gems today!)

to navigate!

    2014 has been a bit of a challenging year so I'm hoping for a few positive changes in 2015. There have been plenty of bright spots too though, and one of them is the wonderful little community we have online. You are a treasure Debi and I'm so glad I've gotten to know you. Sending you hugs (and some sunshine to warm you up) from Oz! ❤ ❤ ❤ xo
