Christmas Spirit

"May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope; The spirit of Christmas which is peace; The heart of Christmas which is love."
 - Ada V. Hendricks ....and may you have lots of snow to play in!

So....I've been encouraged to tell the rest of the story....I got lost in the woods skiing this evening....and, I'd forgotten my cell phone. Somehow I got disoriented when it got dark. Not to worry....just follow the trail. Except it's snowing faster and harder and the trail is disappearing. Uh-oh. Time to call in a higher power....and guess what? Just then a lone cc skiier rounded the corner and pointed me in the right direction....I was about 2 miles out and going the wrong way deeper into the woods! So, there you have it....but, tomorrow I'll bring the cell phone. :)
