“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” (Mother Teresa) not only on Christmas day, but every day on the path least traveled…..

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂

A gift of flowers for Christmas day..

A Christmas Bouquet for you, my love
Each bloom has been chosen in hopes to convey
To bring in the season of joy this year
With my message of love this day

With a red Carnation,
To show how my heart aches for you,
Posies of Forget-Me-Nots,
To show my love is true

And fragrant Freesias,
Embracing trust we share
With Lilies of the Valley,
Returning happiness and care

Daisies to show,
My love is loyal – undivided,
As the Phlox whispers softly,
‘Our spirits are united,’

And I’ve added Primrose,
To remind you again
That I can’t live without you,
And with you I’ll remain

And all about this Christmas bouquet,
Are sprigs of Baby’s Breath, sown
So delicately displayed
With a message of their own,

So with this Christmas bouquet, my love
I shall eternally bestow
A heartfelt message of love,
Even these blooms seem to know.

Merry Christmas….
(Larry “Dutch’ Woller)

With the season of giving..

Hello Dairy…

Christmas Eve is nearing and in the spirit of giving there are gifts under tree on the path.. gifts that that I place under the tree that cannot be purchased..the tree and the gifts are there each and every day, not just Christmas…..“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” (Helen Keller).. 🙂

cunningham letter

The gift of hope
Children can follow their own dream, you see
Not to be denied by another’s ideology,
To follow the destiny of their own choice
Not to be hindered by another’s voice.

The gift of understanding
Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice…you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
And of what or who they wish to be.

freedom

The gift of freedom
Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

The gift of happiness
Not a world of sorrow or fear
But a world of hope and dreams, not sadness
A world of eternal love and peace
A world of eternal happiness.

love-world, hands1

The gift of love
A love that is without end
Through an eternity it will endure,
A love that knows no boundaries
A love beautiful, caring and pure.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

And these gifts do not have a name on them so anyone can open them in the spirit of giving.. I do hope the gifts will be received with the same joy in which they were given… 🙂

It will be quiet in the home this Christmas, but I do not despair .. for over the years I have stored memories of Christmas past in the heart for when I grow too old to dream..

No matter where..

Or when…

And with home being where the heart is, I will always be home for Christmas with family and friends…

That being said, I had better see if Santa has left anything for me.. will be enjoying the holidays, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..

Merry Christmas, planet Earth, and hope the day (and every day) is filled with love, happiness, peace and good will for all…

  1. “… a world that respects another’s dream” – that’s the kind of world we need, I’d like to go there too, a one-way ticket. This is such a beautifully written post, it’s bought a tear to my eye which is not an easy feat as I’m a total Grinch lately because of Christmas. You have such a way with words and your compassion radiates in what you write. You deserve the warmest, most loving of Christmasses. You’re not alone either when you have the blogging world beside you. Cherish those memories and take pleasure in all the small, simple joys you can – Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & all the best for a happy, healthy New Year. 😊🎄

  2. My favorite parts of Christmas are the quiet parts like coming home after church on Christmas Eve, lighting candles and watching It’s a Wonderful Life, and now, in my living room, lighting candles again and listening to the beautiful music you’ve shared. Thank you for this free flowing abundance of love, peace, and goodness. May all the love you send out into the world blossom, expand and return to you. I hope you have a wonderful new year!

      May flowers always line your path

      May a rainbow run beside you
      in a sky that’s always blue,
