Simple Christmas Secret

I was diagnosed

with breast cancer

at the beginning of a

Christmas Season.

It was all too much

to get out my decorations,

shop

and

then

bring in the Christmas Atmosphere

in my home.

Yet

I didn’t want to stop Christmas

for my family!

ITS A FAVORED TIME OF YEAR!

This is one of my secrets for bringing home atmosphere simply.

The use of SCENT:

Christmas Soup

(Not for eating but for atmosphere!)

Ingredients

One little pot

(I bought an inexpensive red one at Home Goods)

water

stove

Cinnamon

Cloves

Ginger

orange peels as you eat through the season

Directions:

1. Pour water in the pot

2. Put dashes here and sprinkles there of all the spices

3. Every time you eat an orange throw the peels in the pot

4. Simmer from Dec. 1 until you take down Christmas in January

(Be sure you keep adding water and spices as they cook away all season long. About every other week I dump the pot and begin a fresh new one. It looks awful but smells divine! Give one of the kids the job of making Christmas soup…its fun!)

You may not be able to do

all the things you want to do this holiday.

That is okay!

But you can

make your home

feel

Christmasy

by doing simple things…

Then Christmas will be really spent doing all the right things!

Did you know sense of smell

triggers memories forever.

Bring Christmas soup home

every season

and your family

will always remember it!

Be Well!
