Don't forget all the diamonds and pearls never could fix the poor little rich girls...

Rufus Wainwright  - Spotlight on Christmas
People love and people hate
People go and people wait
But, don't forget Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
Once were a family poor but rich in hope, yeah

This isn't really about Christmas, or religion, or personal beliefs, or anything like that. It's just about this time of year, and no matter what you believe pertaining to any of that, this song is full of good reminders. Reminders to slow down, appreciate, remember what you have, and focus on the good things. We could all stand to do that sometimes. I hope you're enjoying this week, however you're spending it.

Hey Katie,

So sorry I've been absent the last day or two. Too much going on and not enough time. I wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

I'm off to pack my bag and get a load of stuff together for Goodwill...somehow the two always go hand in hand.

Have a wonderful holiday!!

xoxo,
Carrie
