Contemplative Monday


For this post may I recommend we all just sit back,
look around and embrace what we see in front of us.
And I don't mean this computer screen!! lol

Now if we could just take a cue from my grand-niece Julia,
who figured out a way to 'just sit back' and watch
at our family Christmas get-together on Saturday.


We have so much for which to be thankful.
Let's contemplate that this week.

Merry Christmas.

  17. What a beautiful picture of your grand niece, Julia! I never knew my grandfathers, but my great uncles were awesome. I bet you are a wonderful great uncle, Jim. I spent happy, lazy, contemplative times with Terry these past few days. It's one of the things I like best about Christmas. All the best to you, Ron, and Sophie!
