When do you begin to feel full of Christmas spirit? I know that this year is going to be a very different one for most of us, and for many it will undoubtedly be a quiet and possibly lonely one, but I still can’t help but feel that little tingle of Christmas expectation building up within me.
It started the other morning as I was driving to the city to see Simon. I am usually quite happy immersed in my own thoughts and the beautiful view around me as I drive merrily along, but on this morning I knew that the time had come to bring Christmas to my journey, with a little help from the man himself……..no not Santa but Michael Buble’. Christmas journeys just wouldn’t be the same without him, and I’m grateful for his wonderful collections of Christmas songs and for the many duets we have together as he joins me on my pre christmas journeys.
This years Christmas might be a very different one due to Covid but there are still so many pre Christmas activities that can be enjoyed at home. I thought I’d share a few photos of my little 2 year old grandson Arlo with you as he is busy with mum and dad getting ready to greet Santa.
So even with the ‘Covid cloud’ hovering above us there is still lots of fun to be had. Christmas magic is certainly a joy as its viewed through the excited eyes of a two year old.
Christmas has always been a special time for me, It was always a very church filled time as I was growing up and I was very aware of the fact that God had given a gift to the world he loved as the baby Jesus was born in a manger. The Christian side of Christmas is still valuable to me but it I also find it an important time to focus on family and in the same way that God gave a gift to show his love to his children so I take real joy in giving gifts to my family, to show my love to the ones who make my world a better place.
I want to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a very Happy Christmas and as you celebrate alone to stay safe or with a few friends and family members, I hope you remain well and that your heart is filled with peace, love and Joy during the Christmas period.
