Happy Holidays

In spirit we are,

even if we cannot really be together.

And even if we were together,

we are never really complete

without the ones we lost.

Still, we are together

even when we are apart

as we live in each other’s soul and heart.

Gratitude Wednesday

I don’t know what to put on my Christmas list. That means that my family has a harder time shopping for me. But you know what? I am grateful that I don’t know what to ask for Christmas.

It is privilege, yes, a warm home, a full refrigerator, a stuffed pantry, lots of clothes and books, and I have my health and my family. We love each other and we like spending time together. I think that I have everything I want.

Ideally, I’d like a large portion of world peace. I actually ask for it every year. My family knows it is a heart wish, a sincere heart wish, and what we can contribute, we do. But a lot is out of our hands. So, we work on peace in our own small corner of the world.

I will probably put some books and scarves on my wish list, perfume, and maybe a pair of fuzzy socks. But that will be it. I have what I have always coveted. My own little world filled with people whom I love and like.
