I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, five dogs, a cat and nine Nubian milk goats. Chickens have arrived and are nicely settled in our poultry yards. The big chickens had to be separated out, as some of the little chickens are bullies and were plucking them bare.

Most of this year's projects had to be put on hold due to some heart issues, but they seem to have self-resolved, so now I just need ...

My Christmas Wish For You

by Ruth Kephart

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

A Friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of
one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the
gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth
keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.

Happy Monday my friend.
Hugs
Pat

God made Christmas happen;
friends make Christmas beautiful;
music makes Christmas festive;
giving makes Christmas joyous;
love makes Christmas complete.
William Arthur Ward


May you experience all the joys of the Christmas holidays.
