Do You See What I See?

ALL around us, lights burn through the dark to light up the darkness of winter.
People seem more cheerful and helpful. They think of others. They are full of good wishes. People I let cut in through traffic clogged streets I send on with a "Merry Christmas," since this is my gift to them: letting them in ahead of me.
I did a lot of shopping today and was stuck in one store for quite a while searching through all the wonders for "the perfect thing."
Now to wrap them and prepare food for tomorrow night's visit with family.
I pray you are warm, safe and happy tonight - femminismo

Fantastic photo. That's pretty much what is going on here as well. It's like we are all ready to take a breather, isn't it?

Happiest of all holidays,
Candace

Sweet that you are contributing to kindness at this time of year, because frequently people can become more rushed and consequently aggressive. Have a good holiday.
