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 ...

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.

What Is A Friend?
✫..-'''-..✫
A friend is somebody
Who knows you and likes you
Exactly the way that you are.

Someone who's special
And so close in thought
That no distance can ever seem far.

A friend understands you
Without any words,
Stands by you
When nothing goes right.

And willingly talks
Over problems with you
Till they somehow
Just vanish from sight.

And whether you're neighbors
Or live miles apart,
A word from a friend gives a lift
To your heart and spirit.

That shows you once more
Why friendship is life's dearest gift!

Wishing you a Sparktacular Weekend my friend.
Pat
