Wishing Star Angel... Michelle Perkett Blog Hop

PLEASE NOTE.... I have 2 posts today... The Bella Bloghop Post follows this one! Thanks! :)

Christmas Wish



Breathe in and relax... that is all that we ask of you today as you take this wonderful journey with us. Let the peace and serenity flow over and through you. Sometimes what we all need is someone to say Stop. Take a moment that is yours and only yours. Hold the moment and savor it. Feel the blessings brought by just being.

This beautiful image was drawn by Michelle Perkett.... a lovely lady with a heart of gold. She has given each of us along the hop this image to use to as a stepping stone to inspiration, but Michelle also charged us with the task of telling everyone our deepest Christmas wish.




I don't know if any of you have noticed particularly, but talking about my personal life is not something I do on a regular basis. This has been a rough year for my husband and myself, but always my goal is to focus on the positive and not let the negative win. Having strength in the Lord and having wonderful friends and family gives me the network of love and faith to keep moving forward and to not drown in the mire of everyday circumstance. My greatest Christmas wish is that you could find this strength and that you would allow people who care for you to help you when help is needed.... but also that you would help them in return. Let us form a circle of love, hope, and faith... keeping the joy of Christmas alive....

Thank you for stopping to see me on this wonderful blog hop... if you came here from Alex's beautiful blog you are hopping on the right track! If you just dropped by my blog please start the hop at Michelle's blog so that you don't miss any of the wonderful wishes! The next stop is Terri. Make sure you continue all the way through the hop... I hear there is a little something special at the end...

Wishing you a blessed day. Smiles ~ Brandi

As above what amazing colours. Its a very unique creation.

I will hold that wish close, I agree we need to let people in when we need help and be aware of people not asking but still needed help, in many cases they are the ones who need it more
