Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. ~Augusta E. Rundel

I love this saying and I think it captures Christmas how I see it...I have had such a special day today...My dear friend Angela and her daughter came for morning tea... Kirstie and I made the table pretty and we chatted and giggled and I was sad for them to go. Then just after they left my dearest friend in the world who lives in another state phoned and I chatted with her for an hour and I just felt so content.... We are leaving tomorrow for a few days away, catching up with family and having a little break before another wonderful, busy year starts... So I wanted to say I hope everyone has a TRULY MAGICAL Christmas and to thank you all for making blog land a truly wondrous place....
