 Just a gentle reminder to remember to breathe.
 This time of year we all feel like we are running around in circles.

 Take time to stretch and to enjoy the moment.
Funny how when we take time to breathe all the way to our toes, we stand up a little taller.
I just love those sugar plum fairies.  They remind me to embrace the sweetness of the holidays.

I actually had a massage yesterday! something I NEVER do. My husband gave it to me as a gift months ago (see, it took me so long to use it) and I thought, what better time than the hectic holidays. Today? I feel wonderful. Thanks for the reminder. donna

Thank you... I needed that!

Patricia, Several weeks ago when I spoke to my mother she went on and on about the beautiful house painting you did of the farmhouse. She asked me to send her a house notecard as her Christmas card. Last night when I spoke to her she told me that when she received it she immediately put it in a frame and has it on display in her home! Please know that your gift is now being loved and admired in two houses in two states now!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours my friend!

Yes...a much needed reminder, as I am off once again to immerse myself into the crowds. I'm going to attempt to bring and find the *joy* of the season while I'm out there as well!!
Maybe I should go put my tutu on...

What a wonderful quotation. And the images remind me of my daughter's days dancing. Even the thud of teen age toe shoes can be beautiful in the right mindframe:).

Ahh the sugar plum fairies - so graceful, so whimsical, so utterly breathtaking. Thank you for the reminder.

Love this and I have always wished I could stand on my toes like that.

Thank you, just the reminder I need. It made me go upstairs and put on my yoga pants and I am going to go stretch!

I have to remind myself sometimes, to stop and take a deep breath - relax! What ever is happening just seems easier to deal with then.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
