Positive Distractions For Christmas 2020.

It's been a year since I posted. I've missed the blogging community and the diverse interaction that I cherish.  I've been overwhelmed with health issues.  Two major surgeries in less than two months has taken its toll on me.  I'm still experiencing a lot of pain.  Yet, somehow, through the pain, I focus on the positive distractions that give me comfort.     

This has been the most awful of years.  Compounded by the restrictions, the chaos and confusion that has dominated our lives in the year 2020.

Hello to you.  I will now share some positive distractions that have helped me so much. 

And there we are.  Christmas 2020.  The positive distractions of a glowing fire, a Christmas tree, a couple of wee folks, a photo of my son when he was a young boy.   Plus, of course, a photo reminder of the spirit of Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar.

The peace and joy that I embrace.  The wee folks have taught me many a lesson.  About unconditional, non-judgemental love. 
Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess, her husband, Geoffrey the garden gnome and their boychild, Einahalk, wish for you, for me, for all of us, a wondrous time now and into the future.  
I fondly recall the gathering of the wee folks one wintry evening back at my old enchanted garden. 

I took this photo on the afternoon of December 23, 2020.  Two pigeons perched on the scaffolding just outside my bedroom window.  
Ah, the last remnants of the setting sun as darkness blankets the sleepy little town of Leek.
Bless the memory of Penny.  So content with a trio of garden gnomes.  Her spirit will keep me company as it's wise that I spend Christmas day on my own.  On my own but grateful for all the positive distractions.  

May you have a peaceful Christmas.  Let us rejoice in all that is good and focus on our positive distractions.
