A Beautiful Peaceful Christmas

Greetings and Blessings to all on this lovely, peaceful Christmas. Since I moved to this lovely peaceful place in upstate New York, I am able to spend the holiday any way I want to with my two lovely men and my one lovely dog.

I spent my entire day(or most of it anyway)listening to the new age CD's my hubby and son got me for Christmas. New Age music is something I never listened to until probably the last two or three months. I am so glad I found it, it brings me such peacefulness. I also hand embroidered the day away. I realized just how lucky I am to be satisfied and content with just beautiful music and a lovely hand embroidery project. That is also something I am very surprised to find out about myself, that I can be content just being. I'm Italian and in my not so far off past I would be sitting stuffing my face surrounded by a rather large family. That was fun but I really have to say I kind of prefer my peaceful little Christmas.

I'm not one for material things, just the things I love. Music, needlework, and books. I don't wear very much jewelry(although I love it) a simple cross and my wedding ring so jewelry wouldn't do much for me, I get as much joy from looking at the beautiful jewelry I can find on some of the blogs I read as I can get looking at it in my jewelry box. And clothing, well I'm not really much into that either I'm afraid. Just music, books and needlework and if I get to partake in them as I did today I am in heaven.

I hope your Christmas was heavenly! Keep stitching!

What a beautiful post ... I am glad that you had a peaceful Christmas. I too had the opportunity (after a hectic move) to sit enjoy peace and solitude. This post describes to me what the spirit of Christmas is all about. May the New Year usher in for you tremendous beauty peace & joy. May all your dreams come true for 2008. Kazi

I made dinner for my husband's family, so I had to spend most of the day cooking and cleaning! I would have rather curled up on the couch and read an art book, or make art, but it is ok...I love being with family and friends...and am grateful for all that I have. Glad to hear you had a lovely time, and may the New Year be one of love, peace, and health for you and yours. xxpatti
