Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 ).
“Love knows no bounds or time, love is the spirit of the heart, love is the life support of hope, love is the force behind compassion, love is the foundation for true friendships, relationships….without love, life has no meaning”…. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Christmas Is Coming, White Or Not…….
Tis rain and fog, not a snowflake in sight
Looks more like Christmas in Hawaii, and this I fear,
With the weather forecast in hand
May not be a white Christmas this year!
The tree is trimmed, not as many lights this year
The presents are fewer, but tis the thought that counts,
Maybe not as plentiful, but food is prepared
As Christmas draws near and excitement mounts!
The spirit is in the air, the weather not to matter
And I am caught up in the spirit, I must confess,
So white or no, Merry Christmas to ALL!
And may all your presents be filled…. with love and happiness!!
( Larry “Dutch” Woller, )
It is a Friday before Christmas day and it doesn’t look much like a Bing Crosby White Christmas… 🙂
But we will take here on the path… week near finished and before going into full holiday mode, going down the list, checking it twice… 🙂 leaves gathered, check!.. laundry done, check!. errands done, check!.. Christmas morning breakfast ready for the microwave…
Check!… Christmas dinner ready for microwave….
Check!… tree trimmed and presents under…
Check!… decorations finished…
Check!… Received a letter (and Christmas card) from Feed America and Wells Fargo yesterday saying they will triple my donation, so got into the piggy bank again and hopefully a child will have a bright holiday…“When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.” Helder Camara
Check!… Received a card from the Cunningham Children’s home yesterday with holiday wishes and decided to once again help out with another donation..“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” Dwight D. Eisenhower
Check!.. got the weather forms ready and organized for 2019… 🙂
Check!… got holiday romance books (along with Climbing Over Grit and Dog Bone Soup) downloaded on the Kindle for the holiday…
Check!… the forecast for Christmas day is chance of rain and maybe some snow mixed in.. Sooooooooooo to brighten the day and keeping with the holiday theme on the path least traveled, the clothes of choice are..
Check!.. and finally, to add a little color to the holiday and support for cancer research, pink is the color of choice for the nails…
Check!…. The list is complete, can now venture into a full holiday mode, relax, perhaps browse a Christmas past or two, maybe write a poem or two if mood permits and contemplate what the new year may bring… “For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” John F. Kennedy
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.” T.S. Eliot
“No one can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending” Maria Robinson
That being said I will close now, Diary.. will enjoy the holiday and think of those that are not as fortunate as I and hope their world will become a better place.. may pop in briefly from time to time but will not return until after Christmas day… I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
Have a wonderful holiday, Diary, may it be all that you wish for it to be and each and every day be filled with love and happiness…“It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” Agnes Repplier
