Sunday Reflections…

We the spent the evening and part of last night decorating the Christmas tree & putting up all our indoor decorations. Lots of great memories and stories always come out during these yearly traditions 🎅🏻 We listened to Christmas tunes new and old… BOOM! – I’m officially in the “Christmas spirit”!

I think the tree turned out great! All the thanks goes to Jo & Jacob.

It was a group effort and I’m proud of how the tree looks this year. Jacob is 16 now and still LOVES the Christmas 🎄 & spending time with his Mom & Dad. That’s the best present I could ask for 😍

And for another tradition we started many years ago now, I broke out my holiday hat…

December 1st. I break out my “Redneck Santa” hat! 🎅🏻 I like to have a little fun in the spirit of the season & since I’ve let my beard grow out, they tell me I even look like St. Nick 😊 Ho Ho Ho!

 

“May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;                                                  The spirit of Christmas which is Peace;        The heart of Christmas which is love.”

~ Ada V. Hendricks

 

Heres to a great Christmas Season! 🙏🏻❤️🎄

Peace ✌️ Love ❤️ & Hope!

Bill Way passed this morning. Rest In Peace my friend!

This is a message from Bills daughter posted to Facebook this morning  –

“At 6:52 am on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, daddy peacefully left us here on earth to be reunited with his mom and dad in Heaven. I know Cody, their beloved border collie, will be jumping with joy to see him again.

We will miss you more than you know, but the love you showed us throughout our lives here on earth will be forever in our hearts. We’ve made memories that will last a lifetime. We know just how proud you were of your kids and grandkids. We will continue to make you proud in the years to come.

We share a love of weather and always have. I will look for you in rainbows and, of course, thunderstorms since that’s what we love most. ❤️

I love you, daddy! I can’t wait to see you again.”

– God Bless this family! Pray for their comfort and peace during this emotional time.

Rest In Peace my friend. What a life you lived 😊

Love you Bill ❤️

Today is Exactly 4 Weeks Till Christmas Day! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

WOW! Is all I can say… These hard date markers are harsh reminders that I have let Christmas “sneak up on me” yet again!

Does reading this freak you out?! WOW!! Time is Flying by!

So much to do!

  •  I need to make a list…
  • Start that fitness program (maybe wait till new years? 🤔)
  • Plan the Christmas party
  • Do all the Christmas shopping 🛍
  • Get wrapping paper
  • Finish all the Christmas decorations!
  • Christmas cards!
  • Finish up year end tasks

These are just off the top of my head 😊

Christmas is Coming! Whether we are ready or not… I gotta get busy!

The whole world is screaming- Christmas! Sale! Shop! Buy! Hurry Up! Santa Claus 🎅! More! More! More!!!   Wow!

I’m trying to find  my way back to the basics…  What Christmas is all about!

With all the noise and the hustle and bustle of the season, the real reason we are taking time off and celebrating can get lost if we’re not careful.

I always feel a little magic when I watch this clip about what the meaning of Christmas is –

I for one am going to try to slow it down & enjoy the Christmas season. Maybe we can all find a little “Christmas Magic”! “It” – is what we all need 😊

Peace ☮️, Love ❤️ & Good Luck 🍀 this Holoday Season!
