Photo Hunt -- Favorite

This week's is *favorite*. Below is one of my favorite cookies to make and take. They are Christmas Mice. Always a favorite with everyone from 3 to 83.

This has been a very busy week and next week is shaping up to be just as busy. I was grousing a little about how to get it all done and even complaining a bit when it hit me. I'm an idiot for feeling anything but gratitude. I'm in great health, sure I have a few aches and pain, but nothing serious. Instead of being a sour puss and focusing on what an imposition it is to get everything done I should be rejoicing as I scurry from activity to activity that I'm able to scurry at all. There are so many who would love to be out doing and can't.

To you group of special people who find your life isn't busy but would love for it to be. Those of you who wish you could bake cookies and cakes again, and sing in a choir or play music in a group. To those who would like to have 3 parties scheduled to attend on the same day and to those who would like to have a visit from friends. I say I'm sorry I ever complained, and I wish for you happiness and promise I will change my attitude and be grateful that I am going, going, going, busy, busy, busy.

And during it all I will be happy and I will remember the reason I am busy it to rejoice in the birth of a baby king whose life was lived so I might be freed from the burden of sin.

m-m-m-m those look yummy and cute too! The girls and I are going to some holiday baking today - if they ever get up! lol

It's always good to regroup and take stock in things. Thanks for reminding me to be thankful for what I have! It is the reason for the season!

Please, feel free to have a look

Happy Photo Hunters! I did mine, too.

I hope you have a spare moment to see, and leave your link.

Hey....don't be so hard on yourself! We're ALL human. And we all, whether we are able bodied, or not so ---we all find ourselves in a funk once in a while. You're headed in the right direction of getting into the Christmas spirit now....THAT is what counts.

LOVE the mouse cookies. I can certainly see why they're a hit. How cute, how clever and I bet oh so delicious.

Yummy ... those cookies sure look tasty (and cute too). I'm sure with you on the gratitude wavelength and focusing on the positive. Keeping the thankful list in my sidebar the past 2 months at Small Reflections has helped me stay upbeat even in the face of normal challenges that arise.
Hugs and blessings,
