Winter Hayfields - MERRY CHRISTMAS

From our home to yours -- may this Christmas be filled with all the peace, love and joy one's heart can hold. May those traveling be safe in their journeys. May those seeking employment find a job they love. May those who are lonely, cold, frightened or sad find the solace and warmth and safety they seek. And may those of us who are fortunate to have all we need ... find a way to share with those who may not.

While the child-focused celebration of Christmas Eve is almost behind us, today we settle into the tranquility and serenity of the holiday. The house is quiet, the rain patters the roof, the cats are fed, and the 'new' cat who has been begging for food and company, has finally been accepted by those cats who 'think' they live here. Like the couple long along ago who found shelter in a stable, our own mini drama has played out similarly ... and the new grey cat has found refuge, warmth and food.

May this Christmas be a safe, warm and joyous one for you and yours. And may your hearts and homes be open to those, on two legs or more, who may seek a part of the love that glows within .....

Merry, Merry Christmas!

Oh another glorious snow painting. It's exceptional Lin. I just love the way you've painted the shadows and the snow on the hay. Thank you for this beautiful gift to us all.

And how wonderful that the other fur kids have accepted Mr. Gray so quickly. As they say, as soon as one cat goes, another comes to take it's place.

Your sentiments this morning are truly heartfelt and beautiful. Enjoy the serenity and quiet!!
Hugs and Love,
