Merry Christmas...

"Christmas, my child, is love in action." 

~ Dale Evans (1912-2001), American film actress, singer and songwriter. Wife of Roy Rogers. 

Christmas is a just a few days and 2010 is drawing to a close. What a year it's been!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the very best in the new year.
I hope you all enjoy your friends and family and take a few moments  from the hustle and bustle to soak in the spirit of the holidays.
Love the people you're with, but don't forget to save some time to love yourself: take a walk, take a bubble bath, take a nap, spend some time reflecting on all the things you're grateful for. Care for yourself as you would a dear friend. During this busy holiday season, we often get so caught up trying to get everything done (shopping, baking, parties, etc), that we often neglect ourselves. 
I love the quote from Dale Evans which opens this post...Christmas is all about love! But as she reminds us, love is a's something we do, it's an action. 
So take care of yourself this holiday season so you are able to truly love the people in your life.

Smile at the people you pass in the street, thank your UPS driver or mailman, wish the cashier at Trader Joe's a happy holiday when you're rushing in to pick up that last minute ingredient. Give out as many hugs as you can and tell the people in your life how much they mean to you...why not? It's Christmas!

Make this Christmas all about spreading love!
