A Month of Challenges – Day 9 (December 9)

Today a group of us along with a brass quartet went to 3 assisted living facilities and sang Christmas carols.  It felt so good to be part of a group that brought so much joy.  We will definitely do this next y ear.

  • My December Daily journal entry will be about singing Christmas carols and the brass quartet.
  • 100_4420This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “decorations”.  This is my friend’s tree and although my picture doesn’t do it justice, it is really the most beautiful tree.  My favorite part is how the lights reflect off the ceiling.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is about the special treats we have only at Christmas.  For me, it’s my mom’s Christmas dinner.  I love how she prepares her turkey complete with stuffing, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, rutabagas, and her gravy.  It takes all day to prepare, but it is so worth the wait.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
  • i remember mama25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I watched “I Remember Mama”.  Okay this is a non-Christmasy movie, but it’s a sentimental, wonderful story about family and the sacrificial love of a mom for her children – reminds me of how God loves us. You’ll need a box of Kleenex… it’s a doozy!

Until tomorrow,

“Hey our mouths are watering just thinking about that dinner too.  Any chance we could get a place at the dinner table this year?”
