Living is a vital process that has no beginning, no ending. Now that we’re all here, together, on this wondrous journey, let’s sing, kick up our heels and be joyful. Let the music of the season increase our gratitude for all our countless blessings. Just as we have to “love up” our home so it reflects the beauty we feel in our hearts, we have to keep replenishing our own interior, invisible world with all the things that increase our love of life. My artist friend Grace gave me a small painting of a bonbon and a tall glass of water. Let’s remember to always keep the glass half full. We replenish it with positive, loving thoughts, affirmations, inspirational prose written by thinkers we admire and want to emulate. Choose the beauty that uplifts the spirit. Take time to reach for the experiences that transport you.
Before I leap into December, I want to summarize some of the most transporting memories of my 80th birthday month.
Love & Live Happy,
I love watching the amaryllis grow before my eyes from bulb to bud to blossom.

Memories: Peter, Mysty and me at East Beach.
Rose and Amy in 1997 at Borders Bookstore in Charlotte, North Carolina. Notice the blue hyacinth “to feed the soul.”
Happy birthday, Amy. Paris love to you!

Kerri and Matt had this quote tucked into a bouquet of blue hydrangea!
Let’s walk gently through the world and keep its beauty all the days of our lives. Thank you, Kerri.
This was pure joy!
