WHat a lovely list. I think it would do the world a lot of good to find all of those things, not just in Christmas, but all through the year.

Love the list, Shady... words to live by, indeed! Hope yours was a wonderful Christmas and that health and happiness are constant companions in 2009! ~ Deb

Cinj, Hi! I may have to keep this list handy! Perhaps I'll need to refer to it sometimes! ;-) Thanks.

Deb, We did have a wonderful Christmas celebration with our son's family. Now we look forward to a belated celebration with our daughter's family! (They come here on New Year's Day.) yea! :-) I hope you spent some good time with your mom... visiting moms is a #1 priority, no matter the time of year. :-)

Hi MMD! It's exciting to think we've got a brand-new year (as in every brand-new day) to begin with! Happy 2009 to you!
