Christmas waves a magic wand over the world, and behold; everything is softer and more beautiful.

—Norman Vincent Peale

Duff here. Mom told Me the Story of Christmas in June. Can You imagine such a thing? She and My Doggy Daddy were living in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho then. I understand people know all about Deep Snow in those parts. The first winter Mom spent there the Drifts on the side of the Road were over seven feet tall. How cold? The Fellow delivering beverages to a local Store skated across the Parking lot on His Boots. Living unstuck. But I digress.

Rather than slog through Snow in December, it was Time for Christmas in June. Mom cleaned the house while Dad began to prepare The Delicious Feast. (He cooked scrumptious food. He even gave Me tidbits . . . if I stayed outside The Kitchen.) Then Mom pulled out the Christmas decorations. And began to Laugh. What looked so Mysterious and Delightful in December looked Tacky and Dusty in June. Nothing soft and beautiful at all. She washed some Items off but finally just gave up and began to spruce up the House. Interestingly enough, No One noticed the Décor at all. Intent on having a Good Time, Guests lived unstuck. That’s the way I like it.

How about You? Are You having a Good Time this Christmas? Or are You a Hum Bug? I say: Look at the World with Soft Eyes. Hum along with The carols. Revel in the sparkly décor. Celebrate with Joy. Live unstuck. #unstuck-living#Christmas
