S eems as though these holidays get
E ver closer and closer year by year.
A s we age, time seems to speed up and
S ends us mixed messages –
O f "lots of time" and also
N ot enough time" to do all we wish.
S eason after season we soldier on,
G iving each day a warm welcome and
R ealizing that life is a two-edged sword.
E ach of us will hopefully find our way to
E xpect the best, deal with the worst and
T ry to put our priorities in the right order.
I wish that all of my loyal readers would
N ever know sorrow, hunger or pain.
G od bless all of you during this
S eason of light and love.
Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year to all!
