Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Here Comes the Christmas Train~

In the little historical town where I live, the train tracks run right down the center of Main Street. 
One time when our 3 daughters were small, the Barnum and Bailey Circus train came through and it was magical. 
Several years ago, I managed a shoppe in town and it was such delight when out of town tourists would stop in and then the train would come down the center of the road, and they always seemed both thrilled as well as astonished by it.
This past Friday evening was the 25th annual lighting of the city for the Christmas holidays.
About an hour after the tree lighting, and some of the coral groups had finished their beautiful performance, a train made it's way through the city and that is when I took these  images.

Just prior to the lighting of the city, one of my 2 year old twin grandsons, stopped to peek in a shoppe window. 
I just melted when I saw him...oh so precious watching the wonder of a small child during this special season~

  7. The pictures are so beautiful! I especially love the one of the little boy looking in the window. I can imagine his excite for the Season. When I was a child, everything just seemed so magical to me. The other picture that stands out to me, is the one with the clock. I do love Christmas!
