"The supreme value is not the future,
but the present." ~ Octavio Paz
The Christmas season is one filled with joy and wonder. It can also be a time of sadness when we miss loved ones who are no longer with us. Creating magical scenes of a snow-laden forest or an old fashioned Santa carrying gifts helps me cope with this bittersweet time of year. Spending time with my family and friends, making homemade gifts and treats and taking time to enjoy the wintery outdoors helps me appreciate the present. I hope you find many happy moments this season.
