Holiday greetings

I cannot believe another holiday season is once again upon us. I'm not complaining. I'm rejoicing!!!
Things just keep getting better and better.
My daughter amazes me with her culinary and hostessing skills. My grandson.........what can I say here, there are no words. He's almost four years old now, and going on forty. Cracks me up like no one else can (except for his mother, and my physck cuz Greg). My little boy's sense of humor is astonishing. I suppose it runs in the family.

No matter what else is going on around me, or happening to me, they make my life an ongoing celebration.

I wish this for all of you out there, an elixir to cure all...............lots of joy, health, peace and tons of laughter.!!

Keep you heART open.


Yes Greg, I know!!!!!!! It's been awhile.

Well, for those of you who peruse here from time to time, let me catch you up. (forgive the bad grammar)
For's been one heck of a year. I was going to articulate that a bit differently, but I don't want trouble with the 'blog' police.
In any event, most of what I have to tell is doleful, and no.......I don't think I want to revisit any of that, except to say this "always, in all ways, in all things, remain grateful".
No matter the pain, the losses, the inevitable sorrows, you will also find comfort, pleasure, happiness, and (here is the best part)............................................... a GUARANTEED lesson- each and every time.
All we need to do is open up. Allow ourselves to really, truly, completely, fearlessly ~ feel. To not just listen, but to hear. To not just see through our eyes, but to envision and look with our minds.
To express, with compassion, understanding, tolerance.
To give. To graciously receive.
To love - unconditionally, without regret.
If we're lucky enough, awareness will result. Then comes forgiveness. Then acceptance, followed by peace, joy and my very favorite.........'gratitude'.

For, in all things, especially the inequitable, each individual incident holds blessed significance.

With all that said, obviously the girth of my heart is difficult to contain inside this body. So, instead, I've ignorantly (over)compensated by spending a lifetime building walls within to keep this heart of mine.
Only to discover
that the best place for it is.......................... on my sleeve.
