Tonight's Christmas Candle picture come from Magpies Nest, Armentières Square Stalybridge.
A magpie collects shiny things; and Christmas is all about gifts that shine and gifts that sparkle.
Liz has an amazing collection of jewellery, bags, scarves and gift ideas for all ages.
There is always something in Magpies Nest, no matter the time of year; which reminds me the unexpected gifts and surprises that are part of Christmas can bring joy in the whole year too.
Take a heap of child-like wonder That opens up our eyes To the unexpected gifts in life— Each day a sweet surprise.
Mix in fond appreciation For the people whom we know; Like festive Christmas candles, Each one has a special glow.
Add some giggles and some laughter, A dash of Christmas food, (Amazing how a piece of pie Improves our attitude!)
Stir it all with human kindness; Wrap it up in love and peace, Decorate with optimism, and Our joy will never cease.
If we use this healthy recipe, We know we will remember To be in the Christmas spirit, Even when it's not December.

Sleep well Stalybridge.
