The hustle and bustle is over.
No more parties to attend.
No shopping to do.
No cookies to bake.
No gifts to return.
It's time to relax.
I'm trying to decide where to put some of the gifts I received from my family yesterday.
When I painted the bedroom, I found a RA duvet cover that I liked for the bed.
Kelly and her family gave me some pretty lanterns for Christmas.
Two of them look nice in the bedroom.
The whole room has a fresh new look.
Melissa and the girls gave me these sweet little bird salt and pepper shakers.
They go perfect with my vintage dishes.
Melissa gave me a white pitcher for my collection.
She, and the girls put this lovely terrarium together for me, also.
Erin and her family gave me one of my favorite bottles of wine, along with some clothes that I've been needing for work.
The days leading up to Christmas might have been busy....but it was all worth it.
As long as we all realize what it is all about. LOVE. We celebrate His unconditional love toward mankind.
I am thankful for the gifts I received from my loved ones.
Today I thank God for them. AND
I thank Him for His Son.
Today I relax....and give thanks.
