`*.¸.*✻ღϠ₡ღ¸.✻´´¯`✻.¸¸.Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ.. Counting down!!!! Are you ready for 2013?
The countdown is near. Hope this year has brought you some joy and that you will see dreams come true in the coming year.

New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.  ~Hamilton Wright Mabie

Soulful Sunday

☾ °☆  . * ¸.   ★ 
Laughter is timeless, 
Imagination has no age,
And dreams are forever☾ °☆  . * ¸.   ★ 

Have a soulful Sunday full of love and health and peace and joy♥♥

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may 

encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. 

Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call 

and answer in extraordinary ways.

Please remember to feed the birds and animals during
these winter days food for them is hard to find
in snow covered grounds.

A snow fall fell through the night and continues on today.
Some people love the winter and it's ambiance for them
Me I am eternally waiting for Spring.

Have a glorious day and stay safe and warm everyone♥

"The moment when you first wake up in the morning 
is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. 
No matter how weary or dreary you may feel,
you possess the certainty that,
during the day that lies before you,
absolutely anything may happen.
And the fact that it practically always doesn't,
does not matter.
The possibility is always there." ¸.✻´´¯`✻.¸¸.Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ..

5 reasons to have a really good laugh

As seen on this fabulous blog

5 Reasons to Laugh

1. Laughter boosts your immune system. According to some studies, laughter helps to boost your immune system and may even increase the number of cancer-killing cells in your body. Doing something that feels good and is good for you? Sounds like a good idea to me!

2. Laughter release endorphins.
 And speaking of feeling good... when you laugh, you trigger a release of endorphins (those feel-good chemicals). These chemicals are the reason that you feel so happy when you laugh. The more you laugh, the better you'll feel so do it as often as you can!

3. Laughter helps us connect with others. Think about how you feel when you're laughing with someone. You feel connected, right? Even if you don't know the person well, you feel bonded with him or her. Forming connections has a positive impact on our lives -- and laughter is a great way to connect! 

4. Laughter protects your heart. Apparently laughing has some healthy heart benefits. Laughing can lead to improved blood flow and cut down on high blood pressure. Heart troubles are unfortunately pretty common -- which is why we should all start laughing more often to ward them off. 

5. Laughter keeps us present. When you're laughing, you're focused on whatever is funny in that moment. You're not worried about the past or the future. You're in the now. Though you might not realize it, laughter really is one of the best ways to stay present.

These are just a few of the many reasons it benefits us to laugh. Laughter offers us a break from the hard parts of life. Laughter offers us a chance to escape, even for a few moments, from the past and the future. Laughter allows us to really be in the moment. No matter how badly you feel, how broken your heart is, how tough things seem, laughter has the ability to pick you up, to bring you a respite from unhappiness. It really is the best medicine. Below are a few of laugh-inducing links. 

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas....................

Love and laughter are always the very best medicine.

Kim and Drew are engaged.
He proposed to her on Christmas night
on Maroochydore Beach in Australia

The world is full of vibrant color. 
Don’t let it lose an ounce of its luster.
Assume this day is going to be good, and it will.
God made it so. ღϠ₡ღ¸.✻´´¯`✻.¸¸.

Happy First Christmas Logan♥♥

You are the pieces of gold that travel through my Soul
Merry Christmas♥♥

When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with the flocks,
then the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal those broken in spirit,
to feed the hungry,
to release the oppressed,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among all peoples,
to make a little music with the heart…
And to radiate the Light of Christ,
every day, in every way,
in all that we do and in all that we say.
Then the work of Christmas begins.

Merry First Christmas Logan♥

Christmas is more than a day in December. It's all of those things that we love to remember. It's carolers singing familiar refrains. Bright colored stockings and shiny toy trains, streamers of tinsel and glass satin balls. Laughter that rings through the house and it's halls. Christmas is more than a day in December. It's the magic and Love that we'll always remember...~M.E. Miro...♥

Merry First Christmas Logan♥

There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.
There are seven million.
~Walt Streightiff

If you have forgotten the 

magic of Christmas then spend some time with a child..

♥Wishing You all A Magical Christmas!♥ Never look back but never forget, always forgive never regret, help someone every chance you get, find God's grace in every mistake and always give more than you take. A picture is a memory you hold in your hand, a memory is a picture you hold in your heart♥ 

Christmas is forever, not just for one day for loving, sharing giving are not to put away, like bells and lights and tinsel in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
~Norman Wesley Brooks "Let every day be Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

Happy Soulful Sunday

What a wonderful way to start our Sunday with a skype date with my Son and his Wife and their son in Seoul.  Logan was crawling for us and playing and looking as sweet as ever as were my Son and his lovely wife.

We love you all so very much indeed♥♥
Have a Soulful Sunday

Update from Sarah:

I've been home a week and it has been a whirlwind of emotions. I have begin rehab at an amazing place and I leave feeling strong. Then I get home and see everything I once did with legs and I fall apart. I could not have done this without my two rocks Sean  and Kristina ... Love you both and I'm so happy to be home for the holidays!
