My favorite time of year is upon us – September through December. It is a time for magic, when loved ones come together and strangers show kindness simply because it is the right thing to do. Yep, ’tis the holiday season, which is charged with cheer and spirit.

I was blessed to start it off with my 31st anniversary, my daughter, granddaughter, and Dad’s birthdays as well as mine. Expanding out from my little world, there’s been Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Diwali. There are multiple celebrations happening right now – it is such a blessed time!

One tradition I enjoy is Christmas lights. During a recent visit with my daughter and granddaughters, Dusty & I took the girls to see some of the first displays of the season. It was a delight and brought us great joy!
