I wrote this little thought last year.... and it still applies, today.
Somewhere, in this thing called LIFE, those simple pleasures have been replaced with stress, heartache, dread and even grief at times. My wish for all my friends, & foe, is that we may enjoy this time - with a little peace and soften, settle our grown up hardened hearts. A friend this evening sent me a Vimeo, video of "A Hallelujah Christmas" by Cloverton - I smiled and remembered, it is a wonderful & spiritual time of year. ( only if we could remove all the nastyness, rudeness, and expectations)
I normally ignore Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas in hopes to TRY & keep the faith year round without the drama. The holidays, shopping and all the choas make me anxious. This season, I might try to put up a tree, turn on the radio, smile, and recall some beautiful moments... & maybe make some too.... I wish you All PEACE thru what can be the hardest month of the year, December with the expectation of Christmas.
