Christmas Blessings | 2017

Hello friends,

Todays post will be about all the many things I feel blessed for. Christmas is absolutely my favourite time of the year, even though it is snowy and cold outside! I got the post idea from Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride, click here for her post!

I thought to myself as I was reading her post, wow this is such a great idea to write about around Christmas time. I feel like so many people say what they are thankful for around thanksgiving, but during Christmas everyone is so busy it is easy to forget what it is really about. Now I love Christmas lights and decorations so I can get distracted by those around this time of the year, but it really is not about any of that. And believe it or not, Christmas is not about gifts either. However, I understand that giving gifts is a way of showing love towards another person, but we cannot get caught up in them!

Christmas is truly about being around your family and celebrating life and love and the joy that this season brings. So without any more delay, here are some of the things I feel very blessed to have in my life:

I feel very blessed to have my amazing family, boyfriend & friends in my life …

My lovely older sister πŸ™‚

My man πŸ˜‰

My friends πŸ™‚

My parents of course!Β 

And you can’t forget about the fur babies too!

I feel very blessed to be in such good health


And for the roof over my head at night and food in my belly.

I feel very blessed to be surrounded by the beauty of the rockies just an hour away


And all of the wildlife I have been able to see my entire life.

I feel so blessed that I have been able to travel even though I am so young and just starting out.


I hope you enjoyed this little post and let me know in the comments below what you feel blessed for this Christmas year. Also, some of these pictures may not be the best quality, but that is not what this post is really about πŸ™‚

Until next time,

  1. Christmas was and is one of my favourite times since it is one of the best times for families to get together. It even makes me call those far away relatives that I never seem to make time to call. That is something I will be doing again this year since both my girls will not be home for Christmas. Merry Christmas.

  2. Great post! Thanks so much. I noticed that your dogs are part poodle? Labradoodles by any chance?

    I am thankful for many of the same things as you – my wife, my daughter, my step daughter and grandkids. And of course I am very thankful for my home, my very stressful but lucrative job and my many friends. I am also very greatful for the many wonderful people like you that I have gotten to know on our WordPress blog.

    Phoenix, Everytime I read your stories you brighten my day. You are so pure in your emotions and expressions. You put your soul into your work on your blog. And so many of the others I follow and who follow me do the same. Thanks for the wonderful stories. Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks for the kind words on every post. And that’s a good blessing too about the community on WordPress. We have such a great one πŸ™‚

      And yes the smaller dog is a labradoodle and the larger one is a lab and komondor sheep dog mix! πŸ™‚


      1. We had a labradoodles that looked a lot like your dog. His name was Filbert because he was a little nutty. He lived to be 17; he was such a sweet dog. We miss him very much.

        I totally agree with your statement about the WordPress community. It is great. Well thanks again and happy blogging.

      2. Sorry, I forgot to say that you are welcome. Looking forward to seeing some photos with your new lens. We all put ourselves out there when we publish, and it can be tough. Happy Holidays!

  5. Upon My Re – reviewing your photo images, you’re a really good photographer. My wife is also, as she took photography in school. Love your mountain shots.
