Home For The Holidays . . .

the lights are on
the candles lit

the luminaries are placed
homemade granola
chocolate ice cream sauce
and other homemade treats
are ready for friends and family

snickers is ready and waiting

in between a few naps

outside it is snowy and cold
inside it is cozy and warm

I am wishing you
happy days and merry times
with one another and friends and family

our family will gather here this coming weekend
I will be back to visit you again before the new year
thank you for following me throughout the year
and for your kind and cheerful comments
Merry Christmas
Touch Hands
Touch Hands
the above greeting is one I received on a Christmas card in the mid sixties.
I have used it in some way in my Christmas greetings since then
