I decided not to post everyday. It just isn't my thing, and it's a little unfair to my friends as we all enter the most busy week - the week before Christmas.
So instead, I am doing the 12 Gifts from God all on the blog today. It doesn't matter what name you give your Higher Power. I am partial to God or Universe or The Other Side. What really matters is that we recognize such a force and that we are powerless by ourselves. If you are someone who doesn't believe in a Higher Power, please just accept that I do.
Here's the best part of this, if you click to follow my blog or already do follow it, and leave a comment, you will go in a drawing for 1 of my homemade ornaments. 5 lucky people will win one each. Please keep in mind, you may not get them in time for Christmas. My give-away runs through today Sat Dec 16, 2011 thru Monday night - Mon Dec 18, 2011. I haven't decided which yet. I'd show you some more pics of them but let's just say Google isn't allowing them unless...
This is because of a wonderful year of blogging to my friends, and watching my blog grow in followers. It is my way to thank you. Good luck to all of you, my friends and new friends.
On with the 12 gifts from God.

God gave me the best of gifts - keys - to survive upon the earth - 12 great ones: intelligence, compassion, creativity, independence, stubbornness, tears to water the earth, humor, curiosity, so many talents, family and friends who love me, scruples, and a closeness with Him that gets me through my earthly life.
