Wishing You Simple Abundance This Holiday Season

Christmas on Stonebriar, 78 x 90 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2003.

All is well in the Brantley household this week. India made it home safely from Pittsburgh, and we are well into observing our Christmas traditions. Separation truly does make time together more special.

We are content to keep shopping to a minimum. We made potato pie and pound cake. We  added the  University of Pittsburgh ornament to the Christmas tree and felt grateful for the gift of a great education. 

India sang in the alumni choir at the Atlanta Young Singers holiday concert, and we both volunteered at the True Colors Theatre Company’s production of  Black Nativity. We will spend time with friends and family and take in a movie or two. We will watch a lot of football and basketball on TV. I guess I would describe our Christmas as simple.

My quilt called Christmas on Stonebriar sums up my feeling about Christmas this year.  (We live on Stonebriar Way). It is a simple quilt — no gold, no glitz, no glamour. Instead, it is tall, strong and serene. It reflects a simple abundance in my life for which I am grateful.

From my family to yours,

I wish you simple abundance this holiday season.
