    Such a lovely holiday spirit, even I feel that when we share happiness and smiles, it multiplies!

    You are so right about this – the pleasure we can get from the small things is wonderful and very important as well #sharethejoylinky

      It’s nice to be reminded sometimes isn’t it, I get carried away with wants & needs and forget the simple things.

    Oh it is a lovely feeling when you do something good for another, just because it will make their life better or easier or happier. You are right that it creates a good feeling for you, sometimes we consciously or unconsciously seek that but I know from my own experience that often its not the reason that you do whatever it is in the first place, which I think can serve to make it feel even more rewarding. I know you said you nearly didn’t share and I can see why, but I have to say that we can quite often need reminding that kindnesses are important especially in this time when commercialisation of Christmas can take over. #sharethjoylinky

      I glad you got my message across, I wasn’t looking for a pat on the back, I just wanted to shout out just a little reminder that sometimes you can get more satisfaction from doing something good.

    Yes yes yes! Love everything about this and good for you for sharing the true spirit of Christmas in such a simple but special way. Love the poem too – I often smile at other drivers when I let them past (we have a lot of narrow lanes near The Essex Barn) and if they smile back it really makes my day! Thanks so much for linking up at #sharethejoy with such a happy post and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours xx

I'd love to know what you think?
