The week before Christmas we relaxed and it felt good. Retirement has its benefits.
I felt there was much more to this holiday than presents. I know I enjoy giving more than receiving. We had a nice snow the week before Christmas . It felt so cleansing. People were happier. It seemed like things were more meaningful and a bit magical.
We went to our church on Christmas Eve. They showed the cutest little video about Jesus' birth. I had seen it on Facebook but didn't take the time to watch. Oh my goodness, it was adorable. It's on my time
Line on FB if you would like to see it.
I have to tell you about my favorite gift. My 10 year old grandson went to the Bahamas in October with his parents on a Arbonne reward trip. He asked if I wanted him to find me something. I said I would love some sea glass if he could find some. I love it and I have never found any. He looked but didn't see any on the beach. But he used his own money and bought this for me. He earned the money modeling for a sports clothing catalog. Now this is special. He said he knew I would love it. Is this wonderful or what. I must add that he bought his other grandmother a shot glass, hah. And his sister, Mabel, did not want to spend any of her money on anyone.
At the top of the driftwood tree is a starfish and a tiny piece of sea glass.
I didn't take many pictures of our get together so but here are a few. Happy new year.
