I find myself craving Christmas in the Summer, more often than in the Winter. Isn't that odd?
This lovely image is from the blog The Spirit of Abundance.
The author started her holiday decorating in her daughter's room, with these strings of dancing lights.
The blog is very soothing to visit ... particularly the soundtrack.
The hopeful little girl I was still loves Christmas ... just not all the commercial trappings that have grown up around it.
It's wonderful to see that exuberant hopefulness lives on in my young nieces, for whom Christmas is still suffused with joy and mystery.
Thank goodness for them.
