SO MANY CHOICES
Good morning world
all the folks who enter here
we boot scoot into
Just like those boots…
So many choices
so much to think about,
we can dance around and into this and the days to come
we have to get off the shelves
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
i JUST wonder
how they know all that anyways
since they report such staggering sales
before the stores are even closed
folks haven’t even emptied out their registers
we are heaing across the Nation
most successful of
Guess it’s good that I’m not the one having to
wrap my head around all that information
really glad I wasn’t in the many lines
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”
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
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
then imagine the food folks
HOping this morning
is treating you well
you are still loving the leftovers of your holiday
having made many
along the way
savored delious scents/flavors/treats
now have memories to sustain, and fill you up
Abundence to bring joyous moments
even in times of strain or difficulty
made easier is we can reflect
on those wonderful moments
We now can say
we are entering the holidays
folks are now shifting gears
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
find ways to make a difference.
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
as they “should be”
that can often leave a
than the good feeling
“paying it forward”
giving til it hurts.
The holiday season is a time of
a time of great gratitude
in the giving.
A time of generousity
It is the love
we will all
reach out to others
The holidays are difficult for many;
those who are facing challenges,
those who are entering the holidays
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
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
embracing the light
perhaps in the service to others
is the best gift we can give.
It is then we shine brightest
feel the presence of those no longer with us.
Resiliency is remarkable
I hope you will not sell yourself short
please be kind to
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
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
now has a van that just went
and needs quick intervention,
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
who gives a new definition to
one who is faith filled with hope
during good and most difficult times.
There is a link to help if you can,
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
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
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
“I think you might want to subscribe to that blog as well”~
I hope you will join me in throwing something back/forward
