Decorating and "The Race"

Little Pepper in 1990 age 4
These are ornaments she made in elementary school


I am always thrilled to receive a new short Scott Stratton movie in my email. Today is an inspirational poem we could all heed when the going gets tough….a great little reminder.It’s called “The Race” and it has a lovely message for all! Please take a couple of minutes from your day to view this non religious spiritual poem set to music.

Today I need to finish decorating. I remember a time when I used to do it all in one day. Now it can take me days…..but I trudge on….Every year, I purge a few things from the past, lightening the Christmas load. Cherishing the angel Pepper made from a pinecone when she was very young, along with a small Ukrainian style blown out egg! Which sits nestled in my tree!

Off to decorate some more….enjoy the clip from Scott!
