Well, that was a winter storm, right? Here in Texas that storm took us all by surprise. There were families who were displaced, damage to homes and businesses and even children were kept from school--again. All this and still reeling from the on-going effects of COVID.
Nevertheless, people opened up their hearts, their homes and their pantries to help others in need. I love that, don't you? It reminds us of our purpose and our path. Thank you to all who serve our community and beyond throughout these trying times. That's just the kind of faith, hope and love we need to "Keep moving forward", as Walt Disney said.

'Tis the month of L-O-V-E aka the month of roses, wine and chocolates! Here's a couple of public service announcements: Order your roses early and buy your Valentine's Day cards early, too! You don't want to wait until the last minute and find that all of the card sections everywhere have been fished out! (Yes, that happened to me once!)

Ooooh, try to say that 3 times fast! The long winter nights call for mood lighting. Imagine curling up with a good book (or your favorite binge-a-thon) after a lovely dinner here. Note the shadows on the table created by special lighting!

New year means new everything -- including new colors of the year. Pantone.com shows us a great way to incorporate Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. I love the feelings that these two colors connote: strength, stability, warmth and optimism...things we could all use right now!

Oh dear, such a loaded question: what to ask Santa for this year. I realize that many are hoping for things to go back to the way they were before COVID-19 happened; back to normal--whatever that was, and whatever it means to everybody! To each his own, right? Oddly enough, this year I'm not hoping for things to return to pre-COVID times. I'm hoping, actually that we've learned a thing or two about ourselves, each other and our world. I mean, how could we have gone through such turmoil and not learned a few things, right? For Christmas this year, all I want is (to be able to say this with a dry eye, for starters) a new outlook for us all on how precious life and special moments are and should be. Did you discover that there were some things that you took for granted. I did, but not anymore. I'm going in to 2021 with eyes wide open - just wait and see!
