Today I am just grateful for the holidays and the natural slowing down of life as people as people go inward.  Into their homes, their families, themselves.  I intend to do the same, so I will not be blogging much over the next couple of weeks.  In place of my regular Gratitude Sunday post, I want to say thank you for your companionship and support, and for making this blogging experience so rewarding and so enjoyable.  I will pop in and out (I couldn’t stay away completely), but mostly I’m taking the rest of the year to spend with my family, relish in all of the holiday goodness, and savor whatever moments of introspection I am granted.

Happy Holidays to you all, whichever ones you celebrate.  A few quotes to help you along.

“Peace is the beauty of life.  It is sunshine.  It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family.  It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.  Peace is all of these and more and more.” — Menachem Begin

“Let us embrace the beauty of every culture and faith to create peace in our world.” — Mitra Sen

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” — Luke: 2.14

All the best to you and yours from me and mine this holiday season

  1. Wonderful post.
    Enjoy this time of year end and year beginning.

    BTW: I laughed at Begin’s quote . . . the part where he equates peace with family togetherness. Our holiday celebrations were vibrant and wonderful, but rarely peaceful! 😉

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
