“For to us a child is born”
It’s a tiny bit after eight in the morning (Christmas Eve) as I write this. The mailman just came to our door with a package from Secret Santa for Jon. In our family we still draw names and send a present as Secret Santa to whoever we get. Worked when we were kids and still does. Anyone else still do this?
I read a few days ago that it’s best to drink coffee later in the morning or day than when you first get up. Something about natural Cortisol in the body that is reduced if one drinks it too soon. I have been trying it – and I think it is helping. Some days though (like today) I don’t wait quite as long to have my first cup!
I read an article this morning about the power of gratitude for mental health. I think I have been practicing that a bit more lately and it does help as well. Gratitude Practice.
And I may even use this as a theme for one of my puzzle books. My SCORE coach suggested that I do a book that has wider appeal for one of my puzzle books. I have been thinking and praying what topic I could use for that. Maybe something along happiness, gratitude and friendship? Hmmm? Not sure what I would do for words for that? Maybe poems, bits of essays, and things like that?
Will think about it.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas – with lots of love and happiness sprinkled throughout the day!
Today’s Three Sunshine (Gratitude) Moments:
1. Christmas packages that come with wrapped Chocolates sprinkled through them. I must do that next year. Nice.
2. Every day we watch an elderly neighbor lady go by taking her big dog for a walk. She does this several times a day. We always comment when she goes by. She is an inspiration to us – also very nice person.
3. Seeing Jon sitting in his chair with his feet up reading a book. Just nice.
