Let There Be Peace on Earth!

"Elf Wishing Peace" by Trina
While we were out and about all week I noticed the increased hustle and bustle in the stores - and how they are all getting ready for the holiday season.  I have been thinking about how rushed this time of year always feels...  We had been so busy this past week, and all of a sudden, kind of out of the blue, I realized that I'm not coming up for air quite enough.  My moment of realization came on my flight back home from Texas...

We arrived home last night after helping our daughter move into her new apartment.  It is such a cute apartment, and by the time we left there, things were pretty well all set up.  We are very proud, and so happy for her!  And she, of course, is so happy too.  It was difficult to leave there... we were wishing there weren't so many miles between us.  Sure do love modern technology right about now... so easy to keep in touch!  Anyway, the flight home was long.  Her dad and I were tired out.  As we were making our decent into Detroit, we saw the most magical scene out the window!!  It was dark outside, the moon was just a sliver, big and bright... the sky was clear, with a few stars twinkling about... and the city lights below, shined and glistened brightly up at us... it was an awesome sight!  Absolutely beautiful!  I wish...


I could have been able to capture the entire scene in a photograph!!!  It was like a reminder to slow down and enjoy the sights around us... gave me the feeling of peace... I liked that our trip to Texas ended in such a magical way!!

Now we are back home and back to work.  Along with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I also have a few projects around here that I am about to dive into... one of them is to set up my studio.  But, I promised myself that I would make a conscious effort to breathe and enjoy... lets see if I can!

In the spirit of the season I thought I would share a treasury that I had the honor of being included in on Etsy.  I am always so inspired by all my fellow etsians, and their beautiful creations, and I thank the curator for including me.  Click on the link, if you have a moment to check out the treasury:  Let there be Peace on Earth - Treasury Challenge Holiday Theme 

Wishing everyone a safe, happy and peaceful holiday season!
