a tenacious little rose but forth one of it’s most beautiful blooms in December! I was appreciative as I strung the Christmas lights in the cold wind.

what do you find to do when….

you’re hunkered down inside during a Winter’s night? Reading a book, perusing the ‘net, watching bad TV, creating in the kitchen, crafting, napping, working in the shop, going on FB for the umpteenth time, listening to music, staying in touch with loved ones……?

May I…

while I celebrate the love of my immediate family and friends, say I will also give a salute to those that have passed, those that are working, those that have withdrawn for now and those that are alone. Although you cannot pass through our front door, know that positive loves and hugs pass from me to you! In many instances, I feel this lovable, silly self because of you! Bless you.

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?

Where does time go?

The holiday season, in particular, elicits a great deal of thoughts and emotions for many. Yes, the blessings or seeming lack there of preys upon the mind, heart and stomach. But, whether your life is bountiful or lonely another element ever more preys upon my mind….time. Fleeting time. It is true what they said long ago, when I was young, ‘the time just seems to fly by ever faster’. And you know what, it does. Days, weeks, months and then years fly by ever faster. A few trips, a few family gatherings, a few accomplishments and a whole lot of time unused, wasted, evaporating. When you are younger it seems never ending and when you are older I think we still take it for granted.

I have this memory etched into my mind: my Mom was in hospice in our home. She was dying of cancer. She became more reflective and withdrawn. We never did have long conversations about our inner thoughts. Just didn’t happen. But, one day a short utterance from her came forth. “You know Gary, I never really did anything in life. It all went by so fast. I still feel like a little girl…afraid.” 

A strong recollection, a prompt to live life and love life. The time is still going to fly by. So what are you going to do today to make it a little bit more meaningful for you and those you like & love?
