"Twas the Night Before Christmas"


My motto for Christmas this year:

"Back to childhood"

“For it is good to be children sometimes, 
and never better than at Christmas, 
when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”

  2. Of course you make one think of many things, but now I think of the appeal of reaching rest and pleasant dreams as the reward for a climb. Strikes me as a happy view up there.

  5. Hello Karin,
    Your post is beautiful and I could be quite comfortable in that bed. Like you, I have beautiful childhood memories of roaming the fields in Ireland at Christmas time.
    Wishing you joy, strength and happiness.
