Merry Christmas!

Hope you have all been enjoying a wonderful holiday season! I love Christmas - the joy of giving, celebrating Jesus' birth, the lights, the music/carols...and just the warmth of the season. My day didn't end up going quite as planned but it was still nice. I was heading up to church and stopped in to check my neighbour's coal boiler as we've been having water pressure issues with it. This time someone had left the water on so the pressure was too high. I ended up keeping an eye on it for the rest of the morning/early afternoon until the pressure stabilized in the range where we've been trying to keep it. Around 2:30 I was able to make it up to Verena's where I had been invited to have Christmas dinner with her and her family. It was an enjoyable afternoon/evening with delicious food and great fellowship. We were also able to give their new telescope a try. And to make the day even better I got a Bernie Brown travel coffee mug (yes, Verena knows me too well! ;) ) filled with chocolates. My friends are the best! :) I have so much to be thankful for!

How was your Christmas? Favourite moments and memories?

Naomi and I on her wedding day - Sept 10th, 2011

Scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go;
Scatter bits of courtesy - watch them grow and grow.
Gather buds of friendship;
Keep them till full-blown;
You will find more happiness than you have ever known.

The Last Thing You Do - High Valley

This group has become one of my favourites. Love the country style and their songs actually have substance and good messages. They have an interesting background/history and are from Alberta! :) You can read more about them here: High Valley Music
