Do you ever?...

Smile without a reason?...

Feel happy just because?...

Someone is perched in my heart today.

Actually, He is there every day, but some days I feel His presence more than others.
-I need to work on that.

As we are approaching the day of His birth, I pray that we all remember the real meaning of CHRISTmas.

Be kind and reach out to others. You may be exactly what someone needs today.

I hope you are enjoying your Holiday season as much as I am enjoying mine.
