A Holiday Card for My Dear Readers

Holiday Card

December 23, 2015   26 Comments

I wrote this post a few years ago and I like it so much that I am posting it again. I may be repeating myself but I can't improve upon the sentiment:

You know that moment when the sun is about to come up and every one else is asleep?

There are birds chirping and the view looks cleaner, newer, and fresher. That moment is the one I try to catch for about 5 seconds in my day.

I caught that moment in this photo of a snowstorm a few years ago. The snow was sticky and it made the most amazingly peaceful scenery, don't you think?

I opened my window on the second floor, put my hand with my camera outside, took the picture, and then my children came bouncing into my room. Moment gone (but captured).

My wish for you is that you get a couple moments of peace for yourself during this holiday, however you celebrate it.

Thank you for reading Snack Girl. I am grateful you take a moment of your day to visit here.

Best,
Lisa

I also remember this but it is very much appreciated. Such a nice sentiment. Especially with being surrounded by ads and requests to buy things. It's a reminder that it's really these small moments that can have lasting impressions. That's what we try to do with our holiday time as a family. Wishing you all the best. I hope your holidays are filled with memorable moments with family. happy new year!

I want to wish YOU ans YOUR Family a Verry merry Christmas and A Healthy & Happy New year.
Thank you Lisa for all the info you give to us-your readers.
Love that picture, here in SC we are dealing with rain and almost 80 degree weather. Living in NY for 59 years of my life I must say I do miss the first snowstorm of the season.
Can't wait to see what you bring us for the 2016 year...

Wonderful post!

I love the quiet after a snowstorm. Our favorite way to enjoy it is to go snowshoeing in the quiet woods. :)

Thanks, Lisa, for reminding me to pull back, at least for a few minutes, from the rush the holidays can become. 🎄

Lisa, thank you for your great blog - I love it & your fun and warm personality :) I hope you & your family have a joy-filled, blessed Christmas!

on December 23, 2015

I right there with you, Lisa - I also captured on film a moment just like you did. When my kids were young, I always got up early before the family so I could have a few moments alone with the dawn before delving into my day. Then steps coming down the stairs let me know that my day was about to start. Thanks for reminding me of those precious moments and thanks for all the work you put into your website for us - we truly appreciate you! :-)

Lisa, this is such a lovely photo and brought back memories of years ago in Ontario Canada. I have seen so many scenes like this in real life. Now, I am out at the West Coast so used to green Christmas's now. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
