The Christmas Spirit

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Christmas Spirit lived on 24/7, 365 days a year? Think about do you feel during the Christmas season? Most people, I believe, are extremely happy and have an extra little kick in their step. They treat people nicer and smile a whole lot more. Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone could feel and act that way year round? Last night my husband and I were doing our weekly shopping in our local Wal-Mart and as we were walking past the check out aisles I saw a middle aged woman checking out and she was wearing a Santa Claus hat. A Santa Claus hat on January 22th! Kudos to her! I imagine she was probably wearing it because she was cold and had no other hat but who knows...maybe she was just trying to bring a smile to someones day.

Do you ever do something totally out of the normal to draw attention to yourself or try to make someone smile? I usually try not to draw attention to myself but I'm not always successful.

I am going to go on a hunt for the Christmas Spirit. If you are reading this blog, please leave a post letting me know what your definition of the Christmas Spirit is.

Have a blessed day!

God is so awesome!

When I left California, to move back here to Indiana, I left the best hairstylist I have ever had. We got along great and we made each other laugh. He was a musician and surfer as well. My niece dated him for awhile and I had hopes for them.... but no. Anyway, I have talked about him alot in the last couple of weeks (even to my hairstylist today) and said I was really sad that I had lost touch with him. Well, today I went into my email and had a note from Facebook telling me that he was wanting to add me as a friend. WooHoo! God is so good. I was happy to hear that he is married now. He's a really good guy! My niece really missed the boat on that one.
Also got my laptop where the WiFi works in the house....AWESOME!! My husband Dean and I can both be on the internet at the same time. How cool is that???
Whatever you want to make of today...make it. The day is yours. You can choose to be happy or sad but you choose and you live with it. That's my new motto. No more pity parties for me.
If you are a fan of romance/suspense novels please pick up a book by Colleen Coble. I guarantee you that you won't be disappointed. Her characters and settings are so real that you feel like you are in the story as well. Can hardly wait to get her new book, "The Lightkeepers Daughter".
