Here are a few uplifting quotes that capture in words the joy and peace to be experienced all year long!

“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.” – Peg Bracken

“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.” – Andy Rooney
