Christmas Shopping at Give Aways?
This weekend a friend started her decorating for Christmas. But her son will be home for Thanksgiving for first time in two years and won't be there for Christmas. Yet, when the rest of us see her tree, lights, and snowmen appear, we feel panic feelings that time is fly by.
This morning I had time to look at the newest issue of New Mexico magazine. I saw a picture of the cathedral in Santa Fe being kissed by snow. It looked peaceful although I know shoppers scurry around the Plaza during the holidays too. But I could almost hear the hymns and old carols being sung in that beautiful church. New Mexico is a spiritual place, and I think I would like to go there for Christmas some day. No presents, just an adobe church somewhere in the Santo Cristo Mountains on a snowy, starry night with songs of the Nativity.
Meanwhile, my real world waits today. My give away is a week from today. See http://claudiapage-bookie.blogspot.com/2010/11/this-that-and-give-away-drawing.html.
