Thanksgiving has arrived Another year as gone bye, Been busy chasing dreams Living life..time did fly, A time to contemplate the past A time to give thanks...they say, To relive treasured memories Of each and every passing day. Thanks for letting me feel love Be it joy, or be it heartache, To know someone’s love A treasured feeling their love did make. Thanks for letting me live life To explore, to follow one’s dream, To seek out and live every adventure Not enough time in the day... it did seem. Thanks for letting me meet friends To share thoughts of love, hope..perhaps a tear, And by going down the path together in friendship Doing away with hate, anger….and fear. Thanks for giving me the courage To follow my own path...to be me, To not follow someone else’s path To live my own….. reality. Thanks for giving me an open mind As I venture down the path... allowing me, To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small That many others do not see. Thanks for giving me an open heart Able to love, understand and forgive, And when I grow too old to dream A place where my memories will live. Yes, I have much to be thankful for And every day the list gets longer... you see, As I venture down the path least traveled Searching for what destiny... has waiting for me. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)“Life gives us brief moments with another, but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime, So live that your memories will be part of your happiness.” (Author Unknown). And for all those wonderful spirits and people that graced the path with their presence over time, thanks for the memories.. 🙂 Hello Diary, Thanksgiving and the holidays are on the horizon.. And as tradition here on the path is starting to prepare cards for the holidays… 🙂
Yes, it is Santa’s helper While sipping on some Christmas cheer, Sending season’s greetings And a very Happy New Year.
And hopefully not only for a time of cheer but also a time of peace, hope, love, understanding and friendship for everyone, that is my dream for the holidays (and every day)… 🙂
In history’s past, on the path, I had a dream Of a world in harmony it did seem, Accepting one as to who they believe and are One’s lifes choices no one did bar. Free to climb a mountain, to touch a star Free to search the universe, where answers are, Free to venture through life, with open mind Another’s belief, it did not blind. 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. Children could 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. I still have that dream, you know A dream that began a long time ago, A dream without end, each and every day Until the four winds, they all blow away. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)The universe knows that I am not into religion (as my late wife’s Chaplain said “ it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door) but I agree with Vince and Jenny Gill… Well, I had better close… need to prepare for the holidays also, all the while awaiting what adventures lies ahead.. but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..
Until we meet again… Home is where the heart is…. 🙂
