A Little Christmas Spirit...
It's snowing...I have Bing Crosby singing in my head...and a sudden urge to spread Christmas cheer to everyone I see. I know that next week is Thanksgiving, some of you may be thinking I am jumping the gun just a bit, but really, Christmas is something that should be in your heart all year. Even Ebenezer Scrooge said, "I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year". There is a little farmgal inside my heart that tells me the world would be so much better if we followed Ebenezer's promise to himself to keep Christmas in his heart. Imagine...it would be incredible...no sadness or hatred, only complete joy and love. Sign me up!!!
I had this crazy idea for presents for my neighbors this year. I wanted them to feel the same spirit that I feel at Christmas. I wanted to bottle Christmas cheer, wrap a ribbon around it, and deliver it with my heart wrapped around it. Well, I did it; I bottled the Spirit of Christmas in little jam jars!!! It turned out so cute, I had to share it with everyone. I can't wait to deliver these, I really hope that each time the jar gets opened, a little magic pours out.
I know that this isn't a vegetable or farm related, but I think that all of us farmgals would be better to remember that the season coming up should be filled with joy. What better way to feel the love and spirit of Christmas than by giving a little piece of your HEART to those around you? Most of all, this reminded me of what Christmas is all about. It's about JOY, CARING, SELFLESSNESS, and complete unrestrained LOVE.
