Merry Christmas!

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. ~ Calvin Coolidge

A “state of mind”… isn’t that the truth. I just discovered this quote from Calvin Coolidge today for the very first time, and it really slapped me upside the head. The past few months have been a particularly challenging time for me on a personal level, and I am embarrassed to admit that I’ve not been “in the spirit” of Christmas this year. I’ll spare you the details of my recent trials, but I needed to see old Cal’s quote. It brought me back around.

Christmas can come and go, but unless we’re in that special state of mind, it can be just another holiday. I’m not just talking about the religious implications of Christmas, but those feeling that make Christmas . . . well, Christmas. The joy, the spirit of giving, of family and good will, all those things that have traditionally made Christmas so special. Cal was right, it is a state of mind and I’m going to end this post….

I’m going to go put on some Christmas music, plug in our lights and flip the switch on my fun meter and get back to being a dad and husband… and enjoy our Christmas!

To all of you who visit this blog and our log home websites, from my family to yours, have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy this state of mind.

Merry Christmas to all! Yeah, that’s our pooch with Santa…
but this was NOT my idea!
