Christmas Blessings To You!

I wanted to take some time out today to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas! For the next couple days I am relaxing and enjoying this special time with my family. No yummy cookies or big gourmet dinners at our house this year. Both myself and my husband are staying on track with our diets. I did enjoy a biscuit and gravy and a slice of bacon for breakfast this morning but will watch what I eat the rest of the day so I should be ok. Back in the gym bright and early we go Sunday morning. :)

Instead of a healthy food recipe, I decided to share this special recipe with you instead. Enjoy!

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long
Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

By Joanna Fuchs

And remember, go ahead and have a little treat this Holiday but don't over do it :)
