A Beautiful Christmas Wish

Positively No Negativity Challenge

Day 56 of 84

I am happy to report that my son and daughter-in-law did make it home for Christmas! With much prayer, patience and waiting they got put on another flight and now my little crew is celebrating and we’re all having a good family time.

Yeah Porter!

Yeah God!

 I once received a Christmas greeting from a friend with a message that touched my heart so profoundly that I saved the card for many years. I tucked it away in a drawer and from time to time I would take it out and read it. Its message is one of love and caring, stated in such a way as to make the receiver feel very special. I know I did. Over the years I have sent the message to my mother and also to various friends along the way.

And today I give it to you.

 I am thinking of you today because it is Christmas,
and I wish you happiness.
And tomorrow, because it will be the day after Christmas,
I shall still wish you happiness; and so on throughout the year.
I may not be able to tell you about it every day because I may be far away,
or because both of us may be very busy, or perhaps I cannot even afford to pay the postage on so many letters;
or find the time to write them.
But that makes no difference.  The thought and the wish will be here just the same
In my work and in the business of life I mean to try not to be unfair to you in any way.
In my pleasure if we can be together, I would like to share the fun with you.
Whatever joy or success that comes to you will make me glad.
Without pretense, and in plain words Good Will is what I mean.
May the spirit of Christmas be yours throughout the year.

– Henry Van Dyke

2. For a surprise gift of live lobster left on our deck by a friend

3. For sharing a beautiful Christmas Eve service with my family

4. To get to know my daughter-in-law better

5. That Christmas Day is here and we are safe

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family Chrissie!!!

    I noticed, as one of your buddies from the internet that I am, you start worrying before an event. Then you share it and we all wish you well, and most times things work out well. I am particularly happy for you this year as you were quite precise in your desire to have the ” Crew ” home. Well it happened and I’m feeling terrific for you and hope you savor every moment. I’m having my crew over today and have been in a great state of mind for several days.

    Thank you God.


    • Alex you are right that I am a worrier- that’s why I’m doing this no-negativity challenge. It is really a challenge for me, bu now I’m conscious of the negativity in worrying. Thank you so much for the Christmas wishes; we are savoring every moment! All the best to you and your family (so glad you are feeling terrific as well)
