first - taking a quick glance backward. My mother's favorite phrase for me was - half assed and backwards.
Oh how I haited that phrase. That was untill I discovered my dyslexia and ADD. Now I claim it as - what makes me SPECIAL.
My friend sends me these cute storys and sayings every week. This weeks - YEAR END REFLECTIONS I was thinking - why - why just once a year? Why don't we try to spread this out over a full year?
If that were possable ( any thing is possable ) it might look like this:
1. All year long we would enjoy sampeling ( just a taste or two - not pigging out) the abundance of good food.
2. There would be parties and people and songs and SMILES all year long. Just think of all we could celebrate -
January - New Years,Marten Luther King Day, Chinese New Year
Febuary - Groundhog Day, Presidents Day, Valentines Day
March - St. Patrick's Day, The beginning of Spring
April - Earth Day( April 22),tax Day, Spring
May - Mothers Day, Memorial Day
June - Graguations, Flag Day, Fathers Day, Summer
July - Indpendance Day
August - Summer
September - Labor Day, Grandparents Day, Autumn
October - Columbus Day, Halloween
November - Thanks giving Day
December - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter, etc.
Not to mention Aniverserys and Birthdays.
We could take the time to stroll through a mountain pathway, taking time to stop and listen.
To sit quietly be a crakling fire place or camp fire, staring into the heat and letting our thoughts emerge, drift, and linger.
All year long we could enjoy the grand and glorous MUSIC being played all around us.
We could enjoy being - who we are - and all those around us.Enjoy the differences and celebrate the things we have in common.
Just maybe - just maybe there would be more LOVE and less HATE - just maybe.
