I hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas and I wish everyone a new season full of happiness, love, fortune, and joy.

Thank you for all of your sweet comments and your inspiration.
I did a favor yesterday,
A kindly little deed...
And then I called to all the world
To stop and look and heed.
They stopped and looked and flattered me
In words I could not trust,
And when the world had gone away
My good deed turned to dust.
A very tiny courtesy
I found to do today;
'Twas quickly done, with none to see,
And then I ran away...
But Someone must have witnessed it,
For - truly I declare -
As I sped back the stony path
Roses were blooming there!
This is one of my favorite poems that I found in a wonderful book called Apples of Gold compiled by Jo Petty.
