Sweet Memories

During the holiday season I enjoy pulling out Christmas decorations and puttering around deciding which ornaments to put on the tree. Stacks of boxes filled with all kinds of treasures tucked safely away waiting ~  angels, fairies, story dolls, tinsel, golden bells, red apples and homemade felt doves. Over the years I have received ornaments from family and friends and I cherish the sweet memories and joy they awaken in my heart as I unwrap each precious one and hang it on the tree.

Yesterday evening we decorated our home and balcony for the holidays. I made fudge brownies and steaming hot chocolate to keep us warm as we hung lights outside in the rain. It was really chilly outside and we were bundled up like Eskimos trying to wrap lights around the railing.  Laughing ~ talking ~ drinking chocolate and enjoying the peacefulness of home.

“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!” ~ Charles Dickens

Here is one of my favorite songs by Loreena McKennitt ~ hauntingly beautiful.

Loreena McKennitt – Ancient Pines

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi
