I wish it could be Christmas Every Day., by  Wizzard.

When the snowman brings the snow
Well he just might like to know
He's put a great big smile, on some body's face
If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don't you lock the doors
You know that sweet Santa Claus in on the way

Well I wish it could be Christmas, every day
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas, every day
Let the bells ring out for Christmas

When we're skating in the park
If the snow cloud makes it dark
Then your rosy cheek's gonna light my merry way
Now the frosty paws appear
And they've frozen up my ear
So we'll lie by the fire
'til the sleet simply knocks 'em all away

Well I wish it could be Christmas, every day
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas, every day
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

Good afternoon and welcome to Adelaide where it is very warm with the prospect of being even hotter tomorrow - so different from the lyrics of this song.  No frost, no snow and no skating in the park.  Our shops are filled with swimming gear, water toys and swim suits as well as all the Christmas tinsel and tinkling bells.

I really do wish it could be Christmas all year - I wish there could be the kindness and happiness that there is at this time of the year and it makes me very cross to learn that Easter things are in our shops already.  Let's please anticipate this celebration, enjoy it, and recover from it before we start on the next one.

Things are falling into place at my home and I just have two tables to bring in from the garage and then all will be ready.   Waiting for Ray and John to do that for me and I think that may happen this evening.   I know - as soon as there is a flat surface someone will put something on it.   I will be the worst offender - I will spread my wrapping papers etc out.  These tables are for the food for serving on Christmas day and as usual will be heavily laden and groaning with food.   These tables are are part of a self serve type of meal, choose what you like.

We are really blessed to have so much and to be able to enjoy our celebration in a peaceful land.

I shall enjoy having my family and friends with me and hope they enjoy the energy and effort I have put in to making this Christmas very special.  I m very aware of how I was two Christmases ago and am trying very hard to make this one extra special.

I actually don't like this stage when there is almost nothing left to do apart from the perishable foods the day before  - it is rather like marking time.   Well I am alive and well @ 101 weeks and I shall gladly and happily mark time.

Tomorrow is the Christmas Party lunch for the Flinders Liver Transplant Unit and John and I will be there to celebrate another year of life for me and special times for others and to encourage those who are waiting on the list.
To those who need an organ transplant it is my hope and prayer that your Christmas wishes will be fulfilled - I am blessed - mine was  ~ just four days after Christmas..   

When I was taken down to theatre on the morning of my surgery (early hours)  the lights were on and the Christmas decorations in the passage ways to different operating theatres  were very beautiful - each passage done in a different colour scheme - gold/silver  ~  pink/purple  ~  red/green  ~ aqua /pink  - that was really my last memory of life before transplant and Felix who took me down there made sure I saw them all.   thank you Felix and Felicia.

To those of you for whom life is not quite so sweet I wrap you in the wings of love and prayer and hope that soon the grey clouds will clear from your sky and that you are able to see a beautiful world.

To those recovering and frustrated by the limitations - be patient and all will be well.

Thank you for visiting and I send love and hugs your way from The Musings of My Heart - A very Christmas heart today.

"There is so much to be thankful for."
