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… 🙂

Christmas day is on the horizon, a just another day in the week for some, for some a holiday, for some a religious observance, for myself a “Me” day, following my heart and living it my way… 🙂

It is suppose to be a day of cheer and giving, of peace on earth and goodwill towards man and whatever one believes, perhaps if we join together in peace and love, it will be a Merry Christmas indeed!..  🙂

Hello Diary,

May pop in on occasion to see how everyone is faring, but I am going to stop the world for a bit and take a couple of weeks off, will return shortly after New Years…  Kindle at the ready, holiday movies to see, poetry to write, perhaps be a rainbow in someone’s cloud who’s holiday may not be merry and bright…  🙂

Though it may seem I am alone, the spirit is present and a heart and home filled with memories, so it will be a happy holiday here on the path…  🙂

Have my wine at the ready… 🙂

And have the tree at the ready for ole Santa.. 🙂

And speaking of memories, I grew up on a farm in the 1940’s, 1950’s and early 1960’s and the home were a old two story with minimum insulation and the curtains moved when the wind blew.. My brother and I bedroom were directly above Mom and Dad’s bedroom… we had model train track all over the floor and sometimes would send messages back and forth as we were suppose to be asleep…  I remember one Christmas..  🙂

It’s twelve days till Christmas
And as I look around,
Checked every package under the tree
No toys for me were found.

But I’m not one bit worried
The sadness it won’t last,
Because I have some memories
Of many of Christmas past.

One Christmas eve in particular
For the night my brother and I retired,
It wasn’t long into the night
The imagination was fired.

We had train track all over the floor
Much to Mom’s dismay,
All night long messages back and forth
Wondering about Christmas day.

But in a blink of an eye
All got quiet real quick,
There was a shadow in our door
And it definitely wasn’t ST. Nick!

It’s Christmas morning….wait there’s a honk
And I looked out the window to see,
It was just my neighbor in his car
Bringing me back to reality.

But that’s ok, I haven’t grown old
And I’m not even going to start,
I’ll be forever young, don’t you see
With Christmas in my heart.

So to all.. and to all
As I get into my sleigh,
WAIT, I can’t say goodnight
It’s the middle of the day!
(  Larry “Dutch” Woller    )

We didn’t get much for Christmas, a toy, a pair of socks, gloves, etc…that were before computers and smart phones and dealing with two wars (WWII and Korean Conflict), but the day were filled with cheer and each gift were given and received with love..  🙂

And whether it is a holiday or just another day, the day (and every day) is unique and special because all of  you are a part of it, and hope it is a holly jolly one..  🙂

Well, I had better close for now… I shall return next year after the holiday and tell you all about the presents I did not get…. Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

Again, whether it is just another day or a holiday, hope the day (and every day) is filled with love and happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be, “The best and most beautiful things in the world  cannot be seen or even touched– they must be felt with the heart.” (Helen Keller)..

Until we meet again…   🙂

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 the day, and all your presents, be filled…. with love and happiness!!

      May you always be blessed

      and all that your heart might desire.
