So tonight me and my friends KC and Lisa attended Susan Taylors lovely "Best Dressed Holiday House." It was postponed originally to be held last Thursday but because of the hurricane it was changed to tonight. I hate that it's so dark now at 6 pm. We met a little before 6 and then my friend Lisa drove us. Thanks Lisa.
The store is about 25 minutes from my house, long dark country roads that are not well lit and the deer are everywhere. Thankfully we made it there safe and sound chatting excitedly all the way to the store. I love being with them. We like the same things and enjoy attending Susan's classes and events so very much.
I have been blessed by friends, and family, by witnessing beauty in simple things like trees and christmas ornaments. Life is fleeting and we all carry so much. My friends and I all have aging mothers who need constant care. Stress becomes part of your everyday routine when you care for someone so it's nice every once in a while to have a little distraction from the daily worries and fears. Whether it's watching your favorite show or reading a good book or attending a class on decorating your home or going to an open house. Whatever it is that lifts you a bit and helps you relax and take your mind off of the things that are heavy in your heart, as long as your not hurting anyone, then treat yourself to it. Happy planning for the holidays.
Thanks again for all your comments. I am delighted everytime I read them.
