‘Sunday Thoughts’ ~ The Sweetest Days

“How did it get so late so soon?  It’s night before it’s afternoon.  December is here before it’s June. My goodness, how the time has flewn.  How did it get so late so soon?”  ~ Dr. Seuss …

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ~ John Steinbeck Artist - Richard Savoie   Artist, Richard Savoie

Good morning, dear friends.  I do believe Dr. Seuss must have had a vision into the year 2021 as his words are indeed a little too familiar.  “How did it get so late so soon?”  Even though Christmas is near, I am enjoying these days.  The days leading up to Christmas are always the sweetest to me.  

Even though everyone is busy dashing about, there is love and magic in the air.  Why is it that this wonderful feeling can not remain in our world throughout the year?  However, the blessing is ~ there are many who do still believe in the magic and love of Christmas.  And I am one of them.

The beauty of wonder.  Christopher Moore tells us that Children see magic because they look for it.”  I believe this is true.  It is the genuine love they possess for beauty, love, and kindness.   They see and feel all of these things with their eyes and their beautiful innocent little hearts.

“If we experienced life through the eyes of a child, everything would be magical and extraordinary.  Let our curiosity, adventure and wonder of life never end.” ~ Akiane Kramarik 

 

Dear friends, know I wish you and yours the merriest day. 

And . . .

May you see glimpses of the magic and wonder of Christmas along your path.  Be well!

 

Joyeux Noel,

Sandra

Happy Sunday, Sandra! I agree with you…the days leading to Christmas are the sweetest! I wish I could slow time down. It is moving way too quickly. May you enjoy these precious days leading to the big day. Merry Christmas, sweet friend!

All fabulous quotes (and beautiful images) Sandra, but that Dr. Seuss one says it all! Have a wonderful (if chaotic!) week!

I am so late in the day commenting on this another wonderful post. I believe Dr. Seuss is correct and this year has seemingly flown by. Sandra, I agree the days leading up to Christmas are the sweetest. I see the magic and wonder through the eyes of my girls, and it sometimes takes my breath away. Thank you for sharing the beautiful images and especially your lovely sentiments. Wishing you and Michael the magic and wonder this week ♥️

I’ve been out of town with my family and am late commenting. The wonder of Christmas through children is the best.
We all talked about our favorite Christmas carol and why tonight at dinner. Music brings us all together.
Wishing you a lovely week leading up to Christmas.

There is a special light in each one of your images, Sandra. All so beautiful. I try to always look for the beautiful and magical in life. I do enjoy these days leading up to Christmas. They can be busy with many things, but I take the moments to sit and enjoy the lights with a cup of tea and find lovely respite. Have a good week.
