A Christmas Day in Maine


Just wanted to stop in and wish all joy and peace.  
We have arrived back up here in Maine and were treated this morning with this soft, beautiful snowfall to make for a perfect day.

Wherever your travels take you today, 
be safe
hug many
forgive injustices
and
embrace the day
with grace.
It is all so fleeting, my friends!

Know 
that I have treasured your visits, words and friendship
throughout this past year.

I look forward to continuing our journey.

I have always wanted to go to Maine. I think my interest began when first reading Stephen King novels! That was ages ago. Now I'd love to see the fall leaves there. Merry Christmas!

Wonderful snow image, Reena! I am hoping for some snow while we are in DC, so I can do some snow pictures. Enjoy your holidays -- you are so right about it being so fleeting.

Beautiful photo. We don't get snow here where I live, but last month we got caught in a first snow storm of the season. While we were driving it was awful. Once we were in doors looking through the window, it was pretty :)

bill lisleman said...

all the best - you can have my share of the snow.

Kanelstrand said...

Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a lovely time in the soft fluffy snow that greeted you. A hurricane melted all our snow away and it all looks pretty sad right now but we are having a lovely time.

I wish you health, shared love and a lot of inspiration in the new year!
