For survival this season,
Start with plenty of cheer.
Add a little peace
And things you hold dear.

Identify the reason
You like holidays so.
Baking, gifts and songs;
Love from those you know.

Then mix them all together,
Shaking them very well.
Add some memories
And stories to tell.

Perhaps some frosty weather
Maybe colorful light.
A heart filled with hope
Makes the season bright.

Then take time to celebrate
With loved ones far and near,
A merry Christmas;
A happy new year.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
