Christmas Wishes


Well, here we are—the week before Christmas!  Is everything ready at your house?  I’m almost there…



Just a few more things to plan, many more presents to wrap…


…parents to pick up at the airport, cookies to bake, meals to prepare…

…stories to read, a trip to San Francisco to enjoy, favorite Christmas movies to watch, traditions to keep…


…wishes to make.

Dreams to dream, childhood memories to recall and treasure…


…favorite old songs to sing, beautifully lighted Christmas tree to enjoy…


…thoughts to think…


…greetings to send…


…and in all the busyness, so much joy to have!


Wishing you and yours joy in every single moment of this Christmas season!
