Christmas long ago..

"Frosty days and ice-still nights,

Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights,

Sound of sleigh bells in the snow,

That was Christmas long ago.

Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee,

Icy-window filigree,

Sugarplums and candle glow,

Part of Christmas long ago.

Footsteps stealthy on the stair,

Sweet-voiced carols in the air,

Stocking hanging in a row,

Tell of Christmas long ago.

Starry nights so still and blue,

Good friends calling out to you,

Life, so fact, will always slow...

For dreams of Christmas long ago."

- Jo Geis, Christmas Long Ago

A New Year Quote to live by...

Another fresh new year is here …

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me

To live each day with zest …

To daily grow and try to be

My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!

~William Arthur Ward

Christmas Time is Here

Give yourself the gift of massage during the holidays.  I know it is hard to find extra time during the holidays but it is still important to take care of yourself.  As massage helps to reduce anxiety and stress, symptoms related to the holidays, and can help you get through those tought times.  Give yourself an extra massage during the holidays.  Go ahead and take some time out to reduce some stress.  Many people find not only the time short but also the funding to put toward a massage.  I find it less affordable to go to a doctor for stress related illness than to pay for a monthly massage.  Monthly massage can help reduce illness and boost your immune system.  What are you waiting for?!

This is a wonderful CD!!!!

Burton Hills Christmas quote

For many of us, sadly, the spirit of Christmas is "hurry". And yet, eventually, the hour comes when the rushing ends and the race against the calendar mercifully comes to a close. It is only now perhaps that we truly recognize the spirit of Christmas. It is not a matter of days or weeks, but of centuries - nearly twenty of them now since that holy night in Bethlehem. Regarded in this manner, the pre-Christmas rush may do us greater service than we realize. With all its temporal confusion, it may just help us to see that by contrast, Christmas itself is eternal. - Burton Hills
