It's the Holiday season....

Well the holidays are fast approaching and couldn't we all use a little inspiration to get us through it all? This year I am trying to keep my heart on the things that really matter. Family, friends, watching for that twinkle in children's eyes as they peruse through the toy catalogs, and especially listening to the wonderful Christmas music that plays 24 hours a day on the radio. I have been in need of some extra inspiration myself lately and picked up Busy but Balanced, a book that a dear friend gave to me as a gift. In this book I found a few wonderful quotes that really shed light on my thoughts and hopes for this holiday season. I hope they will be helpful to all who read here too.

True gifts spring spontaneously from one's pure compassionate heart with no thought of any return.
~Buddha~

Each day God fills up your heart with love to give to people.
~Age 6~

Isn't that last one amazing, a six year old is thinking like this. Wow. I have been saying this one aloud throughout the day, especially during the stressful moments when we really need the reminder.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

I'm with you on this one Steph. The last few years I have let the stress of the holidays get to me but no more this years theme for me is thankfulness. Theres just to little time for anything else in life.
