Merry Christmas

25 Dec

Merry Christmas!  And Happy Hannukah, Blessed Solstice, Good Yule, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus, and Have a Good Long Weekend to my atheist friends!

i woke up this morning with this song playing in my head:

It’s not really my favorite Christmas song, but it seems appropriate this morning, when i ‘m filled with love for everyone and a quiet happiness.

i have a Solstice blessing {a little late}:

May the light of your soul guide you through each day.
May the fire of life inspire your spirit.
May you bathe in the waters of tranquility.
May your body dance in the celebration of who you are.”

And the beautiful candles for Hannukah.

And the real Festivus song:

Kwanzaa starts tomorrow and goes on for seven days.  It is an African-American holiday, based on African principles and developed by an American who wanted to help spread the values it embodies.  

i might talk about Kwanzaa more this coming week!  

But for now i’m quite content, sitting here in my robe, having slept in til about 6:30.  Drinking tea and contemplating the day.  Remembering last night.

Sir and i had a lovely time.  We went out for dinner, to a new restaurant neither of us had been to before.

We exchanged gifts ~ He gave me The Teachings of Don Juan.  i gave Him Rope, Bondage and Power: Power Exchange.  He gave me a jar of some special Apple Butter with Honey.  i gave Him two red pears and a gift certificate to Starbucks.  

We came home from dinner and made love, and i fell asleep very happy.

Woke up with that song in my head ~ Christmas is a time to say i love you…

i love you all – my blogging friends who i’ve come to know so well.  The lurkers, who are all future friends.    This community has come to mean so much to me.

Whatever you celebrate may your day be filled with joy.

      Dearest ‘Nilla,

      If i send the blessings rebounding to me from you back rebounding to you have we created some kind of self-perpetuating loop of blessings? i think so!!

    Merry Christmas Aisha – I love the idea of lurkers as future friends. Mostly cause I think it’s true and can’t wait.

      @Sin,

      Thanks, and {late} Merry Christmas back to you.

      Yeah, it seems to me like we’ve been friends a long time, and really, it’s only been about a minute in the greater scheme of things. Who knows what great people we’ll meet this year?
