..and be grateful

words to live by

Hello all, I hope you are all,

healthy and well,

keeping the cold and sniffles,

at bay.

Been chilly this week,

in my beautiful ugly,

not the deep dead,

of Winter,


but, still.

This is a busy time,

of year,

the lead up to the,


planning, shopping,

attempting perfection,

for everyone all the time.

But, that isn’t what,

the Christmas season,

is about,

it’s about recognizing,

just how lucky we are,

about sharing with those,


less lucky,

it’s about spending time,

with loved ones,

with friends,

it is about,

good will to others,

it is about,

being considerate,

of others,

it’s also about rest and relaxation,

reading, snuggling,

chocolate, charcuterie,

short bread,

sucre a la creme,


and memories,

it’s about getting,


mom’s ornaments,


Grand-maman’s sugar pie.

It’s about being grateful,

for all that we have,

all that we have had,

it’s about love.

This is the secular part,

of course.

I am so looking forward,

to snuggling with my lady,


watching movies,

cooking special things,

going to art stuff,

not worrying,

that I need to get to bed,

because the alarm rings,


I look forward to having her,

meet my family,

having my friends,

get to know her better,

she get to know them,


This is such a happy time,

in my life.

I am blessed,

with friends,

with work,

with the good will,

that envelopes me,

I have been given so many,

lovely things,

since I moved.

I love my place,

and the neighbours,

are amazing.

Catherine says,

“it looks like you have lived here for twenty years”

it is lived in and homey,

my home.

I am grateful,

so grateful.

Be well my dears.

Later girls,
