Christmas Decorating and a Poem

I just came across this quote from John Greenleaf Whittier on another website and want to share it.

"Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others, Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing, Returns to you glad."

This poem is a good reminder to me that I need to be more giving of kind words, time, and resources all of the time. 

I'm not doing any sewing today because it's time to put up the Christmas tree and other decorations.    This is all I have done so far.

This year I'm only putting up a 4 foot tabletop tree.  It still needs some small silver balls, and then it should be finished.  I still have boxes and boxes of decorations to go through and decide what gets put out and what doesn't.  That will take me the rest of the day and then some.
