Saturday after Turkey Day!


SO MANY CHOICES
Good morning world
and
all the folks who enter here
as
we boot scoot into
Saturday!
Just like those boots…
So many choices
so much to think about,
oh my
we can dance around and into this and the days to come
but
we have to get off the shelves
and
into the groove and boogie
with the right fit!!!
I bet those malls and shops are just giddy
after the news reports
a most successful
BLACK FRIDAY
i JUST wonder
how they know all that anyways
since they report such staggering sales
before the stores are even closed
and
folks haven’t even emptied out their registers
and
we are heaing across the Nation
of the
most successful of
Black Fridays?
Guess it’s good that I’m not the one having to
wrap my head around all that information
and
really glad I wasn’t in the many lines
nor
in
the craziness I saw on the news
“pepper spray” in one place to keep others away
by one person”
“gun shots and harm at another”
???
BUT
did you see anyone with a real happy look to them
out there shopping?
I had to laugh when the
“financially fit” advise for
Black Friday suggested that folks take and make their planning for Black Friday
and
suggested they take several pair of shoes, drinks, sandwhiches and a cooler with them… Really?
To a mall for shopping, they suggested all of that?
Can you visualize a real shopper pulling a cooler
through a mall and stopping for lunch ?
I had to laugh at that one
and
then imagine the food folks
and
their dismay!!!
><
HOping this morning
is treating you well
and
you are still loving the leftovers of your holiday
having made many
“Hallmark Moments”
along the way
and
savored delious scents/flavors/treats
and
now have memories to sustain, and fill you up
at will!
Abundence to bring joyous moments
even in times of strain or difficulty
made easier is we can reflect
on those wonderful moments
or
great laughs
aromas
foods
and
times shared.
><
We now can say
we are entering the holidays
as
folks are now shifting gears
and preparing
for decorations
and
shopping til they drop
or beginning to bake and think of ways to do things
differently this year.
Many give to “causes” near and dear to their hearts
while others
find ways to make a difference.
Still others
have become “jaded” I’ve learned
finding that perhaps the very thing they have given to
over time and emotional pulls
are not as they thought
or
as they “should be”
and
that can often leave a
“raw wound”
rather
than the good feeling
of
“paying it forward”
or
giving til it hurts.
The holiday season is a time of
“thanks-IN-GIVING”
it seems
a time of great gratitude
and
in the giving.
A time of generousity
and
of love.
It is the love
that
we will all
reach out to others
into the
LIGHT
of
these holidays!

The holidays are difficult for many;

those who are facing challenges,
those who are entering the holidays
and
missing those not here
physically with us.
Those who are re-visiting ole’ man grief
who creeps in around this time of year
and makes that emptiness greater in the dark months
and
often will take the breath away of those who are trying to adjust to life differently this time of the year.
It is in these times
that we often
find that
standing UP
and
embracing the light
helps,
perhaps in the service to others
is the best gift we can give.
It is then we shine brightest
and
feel the presence of those no longer with us.
Resiliency is remarkable
I hope you will not sell yourself short
please be kind to
YOU.
A friend we’re holding up out there in CO
is preparing for a heart catherization on Tuesday *a dangerous procedure*
 and kidney surgery following ,
she and her son
are in need of our support
EE
in Colorado
and now they’ve run upon some difficult times
and need a little help.
I stand amazed actually at the resilience of this woman
with all she has faced and is facing
and
now has a van that just went
“bam”
and needs quick intervention,
and
they need some help.
WE can together help make that happen I do believe.
“YES VIRGINIA THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS”
I’m attaching a link to her blog here,
*send as gift/no fees involved*
this woman is a true testatment of a warrior
and
a survivor
who gives a new definition to
“resilient”
and
one who is faith filled with hope
during good and most difficult times.
There is a link to help if you can,
and
I will tell you she is a lovely woman…
She is not a “scam artist”, she is a woman of integrity and just an honest down to earth person, “ordinary folk” she says;
she and her son are real,
I have visited them,
I am proud to call her my friend
and
I hope you will join me in
“paying it forward”,
or in as Maya Angelou says, “throwing something back”;
to help them be able to get that van fixed so that she will be able to ride in it on her way to that skilled cardiologist
and feel us with her
for that cath
scheduled for Tuesday
and
on Tuesday
we will surround her in prayers
for a succesful surgery
so she can return home to heal and then she faces kidney surgery for removal of a tumor that is threatening her life.
><
If we could all hear one another’s prayers, God might be relieved of some of his burdens.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. ~Maya Angelou
Here’s the link;
have a read of a most remarkable and resilient woman and at the top there is a link of a way to help… Let’s all show EE how warriors of gentle spirit can band together and
STOMP
“I think you might want to subscribe to that blog as well”~
So then,
for today,
I hope you will join me in throwing something back/forward
and
have the best weekend after Turkey day
ever!
It’s beginning to look a lot
like
Christmas, but I still have turkey in the fridg…
Oh I think I’m about to tire of turkey
You may want to also visit
to see what KellyTwoWolves is making for those Christmas one of a kind gifts! She is doing some awesome work and wintering with her 4-legged in Iowa this year..
I hear that our warrior Chris is still reading here,
I have many asking about her,
but
after being seized on her computer I’ve been told she is fearful of posting on her computer…
Chris we think of you often
and many ask of you and for you!
><
For all our other warriors
YOU are thought of fondly
and
often!
STOMP
BE gentle with you,
take best care of you.

I swear the media and public have gone Mad!! Are you kidding me pepper spray??? Violence??? Way to have that Holiday spirit of gratitiude! It is a shameful thing to hear! I think the public should Get Smart and start Boycotting the Holiday sales garbage and just Plan ahead! What a concept! Don't buy into the hype People! And you are buying Items made overseas!!It makes me insane as I see big business take advantage of the less than bright public! As I watch small businesses that cater to the neigborhoods go under. Tis the Season for Glutony?? Be Gratful for your loved ones, spend TIME, those are the best gifts ever! That is where the memories are made!

  3. Thank you Dr. Sherry for the uplifting words today. Prayers for our friend EE in Colorado. Praying her van can be fixed and surgery Tuesday will go quickly and she will be back home soon and enjoying the Christmas decorations her son has put together for her. Indeed, the holidays can be difficult times, especially those firsts. It is good to know we don't go there alone but are uplifted with those who have been there before and understand. I am off today to the shelter to love and care for the many animals there and hope to have some adoptions today. We brought in the absolute cutest little stray dog and boy would I love to adopt this one. That won't happen with my 3 cats but she sure is sweet and no one has claimed her yet. What a cutie she is. Looking forward to spending a little time with her again today. Wishing each of you here a happy and Blessed Saturday. Hope you have some fun things to do. Sandy♥
