Season’s… Thoughts

christmaschill1-4000

Well… We did it.  We didn’t have a choice, but we still got it done.  The checklist dwindled down and “as predicted,” Christmas is arriving.  Now it’s time to say, “Where did 2016 go?”

This past year has been quite a ride for me.  I’ve traveled some low valleys and ridden some high altitudes.  I’ve smiled up at sunshine and embraced storms with my arms wide open.  Not one regret.  Just a lot to be thankful for.

This crazy woman though… *smiles*

To everyone who has been a part of my life, past and present:
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
May the spirit of the season bring you happiness and a warm smile to your lips.

When It Comes Down To It. . .

saxintime2

The holidays are here!  Time to give and receive gifts!!  Wait… What?

You know it’s true though.  It’s not even a bad thing, but… What are you giving?  I’m not going to lie.  I do love gifts. *grins!*  BUT – as lovely as the unwrapped tangible item may be, what really means the most to me is that someone spent time to think about me and select something specifically.

Time… I think it comes down to time.  It’s the most expensive gift you can give someone. You can’t purchase more.  You can’t get a refund.  It can come in the form of a prayer or good thought sent out for you.  Physically spending time with you.
Listening to you.  Even putting thought into a gift for you to unwrap.

Time is precious my friends.  Waste it wisely.

Happy holidays to you and yours!!

Christmas and Pearls

ChristmasPearls1

His heart was beating hard in his chest as he inhaled deeply, drawing in a long, fresh breath.  Exhaling through his mouth, he stood up, and reached for the drawstring on his pants, retying it.  Stretching his arms straight up, arching his back, he felt his body awaken some from the rush of warmth and calm he just experienced.

He went to grab the wine and glasses, when the journal with the worn pages caught his attention.  It’s where he kept her letters.  His fingers softly sifted through them, catching a few lines here and there.  Her words always warmed him… either with a smile or a groan that came from deep within, trailed with longing and desire.  He shifted the letters back together neatly before he ignited another flame, and closed his leather bound journal.

ChristmasPearls2

Grabbing the bottle of Lambrusco as he stood back up, he deftly picked up two glasses, and poured some into each.  Setting her glass down the bottle back down in the ice, he gazed at their Christmas tree in their small hideaway again, running his fingers across the strands of pearls that remained while he slowly grinned to himself.

He looked up and she was already standing there, watching him, and his grin turned slightly shy since she caught him reminiscing already.  “Plans for the remainder of the pearls too, Mr. Logan?”

He set the wine glass down without taking his eyes off of her, pulled at her waist, and leaned into her making her lean back.  “And what if I do?”
