Here we are, almost to Christmas Day. To see all the month posts I did, you'd think Christmas was my favorite holiday, but is actually my second favorite. Although I do love the cold weather for a change. It has been a wonderful season so far. I have been more relaxed this season, must be the cock-a-tails, and work was more calm then usual, must be the hidden flask, and people have been in actually very pleasant moods, I must be drunk. I have gotten out and seen many people this season, and have spread Christmas cheer all over. Yesterday was a mess though. A dear co-worker of mine, whom I'm close, lost her sister she was very close, about 5 months ago, so she hasn't been in the mood for the holidays. Well yesterday I took her some of my homemade sandtarts, a fresh greens swag I made her, and a little gift of candies, and she was so happy and touched that the dam broke and she started crying. Next thing I know, I'm crying because she was just so happy with my little gift, it made me feel good that I made her happy. Christmas was always a special time for them, and we talked about that and both cried again, and then another co worker started crying. Next thing I know we had a group hug. To me that felt like a true meaning of Christmas. But instead of gifts, if we can just be pleasant, accepting, and kind to one another, to all people, isn't that the best gift?
Well here for your viewing pleasure are some scenes from all around that I snapped over the month. It has been truly a pleasant and happy one and I'm very grateful to that.
