Make time. End quarrels.Gladden the heart of a stranger. Speak of love.

I have been absent for some time from this blog, busy with life. I think I’ve always tried to live in gratitude, but there are still many things I tòok for granted…until this summer, when one of my children  developed a serious condition and became partially paralyzed for a period of time. It was a long recovery but successful. I mention this only because things like this often change ones focus and perception drastically, even when you already live in gratitude.  To be able to speak, write, lift a fork or tie a shoe. Walking is a gift we don’t think of as a gift until we can’t, as is telling someone how much you value their presence in your life..until you cant make your mouth say the words.

We think we have so much time, until we don’t.

On that note, I want to say how much I have appreciated those of you who have graced the pages here with your comments, wisdoms, stories and insights, even though my words are few now.  Thank you, and Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and Jolly Festivas to the rest of you! Don’t waste a second. Make memories. Take that leap. Take a risk. Feel, observe, taste and appreciate every moment…They really are precious. ❤

  1. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy end of the year time! Eat and be merry. Love your Christmas Tree poem.
    Thank you for all the work you do with this blog.

    Over at the Dissaffected Lib he has an article up about the RCMP plans for protestors against the pipeline. If the RCMP truly believe they can get away with shooting at the protestors, they may be surprised. So un Christmasie.


    1. …dont get me started on that story…( and rcmp management wonders why the forces reputation has taken such a hit over the years)
      I hope you are well eaf. Everyone seems to have that damn cold with an annoying cough that lasts weeks.
