Every man, woman and child...

...deserve to be heard
and free...
regardless of religion
or race
are we not human,
do we not all have five fingers
do we not all breathe the same air
are we not brothers
are we not sisters
let us rejoice of our Mother
and sing for a new day
of harmony
and good will
and peace on this great blue Earth...

Merry Christmas to all

Yeah, yeah, yeah, this was yesterday after the first snow
and the sun peeked through for ONE SECOND!!!
We got another four inches on top of that...ARGH!!!
Such is life in the frozen Nor'lunds...

Sharon! Your world is very pretty! So romantic! Love your little Buddha figure!

What a Christmas! Wonderful having my son here! I am so over the moon! He wants to help us out and is replacing all the tyres on my car! I am so grateful! He said he would rather gives us something useful! And he has fixed our TV so we have a wide screen! He's a clever cookie!

Today he just wants to veg! He loves our view here and wants to enjoy our world! (He heads back to Sydney tomorrow! Work demands!) This is his first Christmas in 4-5 years he has not been on call for work! He is a computer programmer monitoring international communication. High pressure and long hours!

Right now he is dreaming of a bike ride - the Andes Trail - in August to December 2012! He is showing me views along the ride of 11,000 km. So far he has registered and is in training! Don't think he will ever grow up or slow down! I relate!!!!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! SUPER HUGS from almost summery Oz!

scratchy is looking adorable with his snow beard.

Beautiful poem for this season.

And your Buddha statue looks calm in his snowy winterland.

Merry Christmas from Casablanca where I arrived on Thu night.
In Finland we had a LOT of snow - my SSS pics are from Helsinki... :)

That's it! I want a doggie just like Scratchy! One of my favorite type breeds but my SG is very narrow when it comes to breeds. He likes hounds. :-/

What a beautifully written holiday sentiment and I love the photos of your enchanted yard and the pink icing house.

I hope you had a blessed Christmas day, Sharon.
