I had a very blessed Christmas yesterday.  

I went to the evening maas at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Las Vegas. 

It was wonderful to see the smiles of the sweet little children and song all the beautiful Christmas songs with everyone. 

I then went to The Grotto, at The Golden Nugget across the street and enjoyed seeing my friends who work there, and remembered me. 

I made a new friend wit a retired gentleman from Hawaii and even though both of us were sitting at different tables,  we found enough in common that the two tables became my table and we thanked God for small and big blessings and meeting one another too.

Below is a photo of me, Paulette Motzko at Weera Thai from last night, December 19th, 2017. I discovered this awesome Thai Restaurant when I went to go get my new glasses and Eyeglass World yesterday afternoon. I also  discovered a great new place to get my hair done too and I made some new friends while I was at it. Mary my hairstylist, was also from California was one new friend and a wonderful, sweet handsome engineer was the second and one of my highlights of my year!

 I was blessed all the way around and saved $200 on my two pair of progressive bifocals by not going to Sears Optical.

I hope you make the remaining days in 2017 memorable and very special.

Bravo on Paul McCartney writing this great song and appearing in it and this great, imaginative piece.

It made me smile and I sure hope it puts a huge smile on the faces of each of you– my readers and followers as well.

Have Yourself a Very Blessed Christmas and Holiday Season 2016 from Paulette Le Pore Motzko

A copy of my Christmas card this year old had photographed by Nicole, one if the talented photographers at The J.C. Penny Photography Studios. 

I took a photo of my Christmas carday and added text with a photo editor, transforming it into a Christmas card I can send the world!

Some of my home bake shop for the holidays ….

Wherever your friends and family are…wish them live and joy and remember what the holiday really is all about ……

The best gifts don’t come from under a tree but are in the hearts and souls of loving friends and family far and near and friends who are family by definition . 

Bake or make something very special for a few people in your life…

Include the recipes and watch what happens . ..

Have a Christmas Tea 

Enjoy a Christmas Picnic outdoors go somewhere  so you can hear birds chirping in  enjoying nature and great company and fantastic company. A beautiful and scenic place relatively close to you does sets the scene-and bring a nice pic-nic basket withave dishes, silverware and plates and watch the experiences that await you!

For 2017 I want more quality and create great times with all the people who matter most to me…..and to enjoy what I already own more.

Thank you to the over 70 new followers this month on TotallyInspiredMind.com.

You continually enrich my life.

Do you live in a big city like I do? Share what it looks like at this Winter wonderland time of year in words. 

Do you live in the country away from the hustle and bustle of city lights, where it’s quiet enough to hear crickets chirp at night? 

Share what your holiday looks like and feels like seeing  through your unique eyes. 

If you make your words picturesque enough you won’t need photos and instead will allow the readers to use that great, underused thing called “their imaginations.”

Me at The Canonita, Mexico City Soul Food restaurant at The Venetian.

Surreal lookingsuspended in the air in the Bellagio Conservatory.This was the hardest to photograph and actually have it come in clear and it took quite a bit of photo editing to really make it look 3-D like it does.

Me at The Bellagio Conservatory last night with Leonardo Valencia behind the camera.

All the  polar bears you see are covered with flowers!

Another winning photo “Leo” Leonardo Valencia took while at The Bellagio last night. They decorate the several times a year and people come from all over the world to admire and take photos.

Silent Night by Stevie Nicks and May You Have a Holy & Blessed Night

This is my jam: Silent Night by Stevie Nicks Christmas Lites ♫ #iHeartRadio #NowPlaying http://www.iheart.com/live/4596?cmp=android_share

Now it is December 23rd, 2014 and it is my first Christmas here in Nevada and even though there is no Christmas tree or presents around it, I am living inside my biggest gift of all…my place and just the peace of knowing it is mine …..
And I can relax. I am planning to bring my things from California soon and I can’t wait.

I hope no matter what is going on in your life at this time, and even if it is far from perfect-you can find something festive in it all…
And, most importantly, you experience the small miracles like the smile on a young child’s face and helping an elderly person in a bad wheelchair across the street like I did today.
In giving you get…it is just that simple.
