Things I Love About Christmas

Christmas time is well & truly here now & the bah humbugs of our communities can’t deny it any longer – hehe!

This time next week it will be Christmas Eve & children all over the world will be eagerly waiting for the day to end so that they can climb into their beds & lie there with their tired but hope filled eyes, hoping to hear a jingle from Santas reindeer on the roof.

I love this time of year. ย The festive spirit, the families & friends coming together, the smell of the delicious food being prepared on Christmas day! The children laughing & playing, the joy on their faces when they receive a gift that they had been wishing for for so long!

Snow (if we are lucky enough to get it) covering everything in sight, making it look like we live inside a giant snow globe. That moment when you come in from the freezing cold outside to a comforting mug of hot chocolate. ย Cozy jumpers. The decorations people put outside for everybody to enjoy as they go past their houses or the shopping centers decorated so beautifully. The peppermint candy canes! The way everything sparkles in the light. Paw prints in the snow. Candles…I could go on forever!

I can’t wait to spend some time with the people that I love on the most magical holiday of the year, I just wish it lasted longer because it will be 2014 before we know it!

What do you love about Christmas? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Sometimes, All You Need Is…

Sometimes, all you need is… a hug ๐Ÿ™‚

It doesn’t matter who you are, sometimes the only cure for how you’re feeling is a hug/cuddle/squeeze (or whatever else you may call it haha) with somebody that you love. It could be a friend, family member, your partner or even your pet. But that hug will mean the world to you when you truly need it & it will warm your heart if even just for aย second. Where words fail, hugs are there to help you say how you’re feeling but without moving your lips.

“You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug”

There is only one thing left for me to do…

hug

Keep smiling & go give somebody you love a gigantic hug!

Tis The Season…

It’s that time of year again – Where does the time go?!

The festive season is here & they will be showing the magical Christmas themed films on TV very soon. One of my favourites has inspired this post today…

If you have 5 minutes to spare, watch this clip of a few funny moments from the film, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

If you have never seen the film before then watch it this year ๐Ÿ™‚ , I personally think that its great for both adults & children & remember, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear ๐Ÿ˜‰

Keep smiling, keep dreaming & enjoy the festive season…it will be over before you know it!

Beautiful Soul…

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines.

She was beautiful for the way she thought.

She was beautiful for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved.

She was beautiful for her ability to make others smile even when she was sad.

No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.

She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”

 

You don’t just find beauty by using your eyes, open your heart to find the true beauty in life.

This isn’t to say that as you age, you are no longer beautiful because that is so far from the truth.

Just always remember to see past the “decoration” & seek the inner beauty of the soul because that is precious ๐Ÿ™‚
