this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Light relief


The weather forecast is currently inaccurate in a momentarily sunny London:

2012 weather forecast

I’m not complaining or anything. Yesterday, some of the frost from the morning did not melt all day. It’s December, the weather is reassuringly wintery. It feels somewhat seasonal unlike how it has been for much of 2012.

We’re entering the holiday period soon, approaching the end of what has been quite a momentous year for the UK I guess. Thoughts are turning to 2013.

You and I, we’ve almost been together for a year. We’ve had our ups and downs. Together. Through this year, the journey’s been made easier via this blog. I’m so thankful. I’m so thankful for the friends both old and new who have been popping by and encouraging me through 2012.

What is most on your mind right now? Christmas shopping? Whether or not to scramble together a hasty pile of Christmas cards to post? How to manage all the food preparation?

I’d just like to wish you some calm and peace in the midst of all the hustle bustle, Christmas lights and jingle jangle. Let’s sit and sip a cup of tea, and wonder at why we get so caught up in it all at this time of year.

Do you “do” Christmas? How will you be spending the coming weeks until we see in the New Year? (God-willing.)

    • Haha I think of all the things in the world that could shock me right, would be a Christmas spent in the sun on the beach lol. I love this time of year for the cold and the warm knits I have to wrap around myself. It’s such a privilege that we can meet over the internet from our very different parts of the world. Your blog truly is full of sunshine, I love visiting! Thank you for dropping by and bringing some of that sunshine over 🙂

  2. Very low key and quiet. Happy holidays to you and yours!
