ITS ALMOST CHRISMAS

It is almost Christmas…

 

….even though this is a bittersweet time for me….I still can’t help but feel the  spirit of giving….when I go out into the crowds….

 

   OH! you will have your occasional Scrooge….especially if they don’t like the season to begin with….

 

   That is not me…can I tell you a secret?  LOL

 

    I have been sad for a long time…and I have to be honest…I don’t know how to be happy anymore.

 

  But that doesn’t mean that I don’t feel the feelings of Christmas…

 

    I love the traditional Christmas songs…and all the shopping….and going out to see all the beautiful twinkling  lights like stars that came down from heaven to sit on the each tree top…that are lined up so carefully on each roof top… as if to guide Santa’s Sleigh to every little boy and girl….as they stay snuggled tight in their beds….

 

    I love to walk in the snow…to take that sled up the hill….drinking the hot chocolate…with the peppermint candy cane in it….wearing the Ugly Sweaters….to listen to the bells ring from the church…and watching the children’s eyes when they see Santa…the laughter of those who sing and play…

 

     It is all the magic of Christmas.    There is so much I love about Christmas….I could go on forever.

    

   How could you not feel it?

 

     I listen to Celtic Women’s Christmas Songs…and I drift off into a state of mind…that soothes my soul.

 

    If Christmas is truly a state of mind…then I want to go there.

 

  I think the snow is the most beautiful thing besides rain….LOL…I know those of you…who have to drive in it…probably don’t share that sentiment with me…

 

    I stand on our back deck…and look out towards the woods behind our house…and I have to catch my breathe…it is just beautiful.

 

    I know that sounds silly for some.   But that is what I see.

 

    I love to watch for the moonlight to glisten off each snow flake…and fill my head with winter dreams.

 

    I also know that….there are some people who think I am just full of it.  But all they have to do to see the real me…is look into the eyes of a child….and you’ll see me in the reflections there.

 Simple…loving…loyal…and forgiving.

 

   Their realities are not the same as mine.

    I am honestly a gentle soul…not wanting to hurt…or offend…or look upon this world as a negative….but this world that I live in…is mean…and cruel…where there is no consideration for one another.

 
 

  I need someone to protect my heart…from all this.

  And I know that GOD will.

  No matter what happens.

 

      I went to get my hair cut again…yeah…it was really long….too long.

   Now maybe I can style it…without looking like a bag lady.

 

    I guess that is about all for now…..MERRY CHRISTMAS…to all of you…may you get your hearts desire.
