Happy Holidays: Say, do you know……….?

Do you know how your parents met? Do you know the towns your grandparents were born in…have you looked them up on a map? Where did your great grandparents grow up and can you draw out our family heritage? Perhaps use the quiet time during a holiday visit to elicit special details from your Dad or Mom or grandparent. Gentle enquiries about the family. It builds or repairs bridges. It gives you a greater sense of self. Are there any old photographs, in a shoe box, that could be shared and folks identified on the back in pencil?

Easy does it now!

“Researchers, more than a decade ago, found that more fatal heart attacks occur on Christmas Day than any other day of the year. The 2nd busiest day is December 26th and the 3rd busiest is January 1st.  The pattern has continued for so long that health care workers coined the term “Christmas Coronary.” Heart Health

Slow down…easy…collect your thoughts…deep breath…think now…it will all get done and what doesn’t is fine…peace on earth? How about inside your head, heart and stomach? Oh, I’m not immune, but I must remind myself too to slow down the mind, the pace, the intensity. Easy does it now…….

Memories Bathing

the pains, sores, tears, scars of life. Well intentioned efforts to celebrate the holidays were given to me many years ago. The celebrations, decorations, gifts were also a means for them, my parents, to slow down, to escape their pains and tragedies. Of course, I didn’t know that then. I see it now. Today, it is an opening, even if momentary, to turn away from self absorbed thoughts and celebrate something bigger…to give warmth to others and enjoy the peace. No let downs afterwards though! Carry the positive vibes forward. No ‘bah humbugs’ in my presence please.
