TAKE A WORD - JOY


Our word for inspiration at Take a Word this week is JOY and that reminded me to tell you about what happened on Thursday morning.  There I was decorating the Christmas tree, when I spied a little spot of red way across the garden in the snow.  As I watched, the spot became a man with a white beard and red suit, and I realised it was Father Christmas himself. 

Was he lost, I wondered, or worse still forgotten the date?  But no.  He said as he was in the neighbourhood thought he'd just pop in to pick up my Christmas list.  Wow, now how is that for service?

Credit to Marmalade Moon for the background, Kubivet for the the trees and Crowabout Studio B for the 'Christmas Joy' and Santa Claus.

Thank you for looking.
