The Wind Chimes Echoing Beautifully

Updated on December 13, 2016

Loving The Morning So Much

Up a little earlier than usual

Eating breakfast slowly

Tasting my food not just eat and swallow

Listening to my wife talk about stories on Facebook

So many incredibly funny cartoons and sayings

If I go on Feacebook I know I would get nothing done

There are so many interesting things to read and see

It would be almost impossible to tear myself away

I know how easily I get side tracked

It 's like sitting down in front of the t.v.

I could watch movie after movie

Sitcom after sitcom

It never ends

I would rather concentrate most of my efforts on writing

It takes time

The right combination of physical and mental energy

Life connects at so many spots

Sometimes rotaries and major intersections

Other times little winding corners and dead end streets

Where we have reverse direction and begin again

I reach hills that are steep and awesome when going down

My journey is not a day trip

It is day after day

The weeks that follow

The years that repeat

Off to one more day

With a good start

Uplifting moments that lead to a new positive place

Where I have never been before

        vocalcoach I open my eyes to the bright sun shining through my window. I wish you could see how the sun reflects across the pockets of snow on the ground. Each groove looks like a mountain range and I am high above these huge mountains. How lucky am I to be up so high. I will ride that high for the rest of my day. Thank you for all your wonderful words that enrich my life. Have a great Christmas and a New Years filled with endless cheers.

        I feel so darn good after treating myself to one of your hubs. I love being motivated and that is exactly what I get as I help myself to a heaping spoonful of your recipe for words.

        Bless you and yours this Christmas and hope your New Year is amazing!

        Jodah I keep trying to let my feelings rise like an old water bubbler. Most the time the water doesn't rise high or far enough. Then sometimes it is just amazing. I love and appreciate your feedback. I don't know what reaction I will create. I must say if I can put a smile on your face I am thrilled. I usually get people scratching and shaking their heads. Then they are silent and don't say anything. When I ask them and probe a little deeper. I get that was different or nice. That gives me little insight to what I am trying to do. I am trying to motivate , stimulate and excite. So back to the drawing board and off to create again. Thank you for reading and sharing. Wishing you and your whole family a lovely Christmas and an exciting healthy and Happy New Years. Each day may only have 24 hours. Some days feel longer than others. I like the days that go by slow I get more things done and get to rest more.

        Ah, Dream On...your hubs always leave me feeling contented and good. I don't spend a lot of time on Facebook, but love to just relax watching tv and writing, or reading hubs. My wife always relates to me anything funny or extremely interesting from Facebook so I don't have to bother with it myself. Have a great Christmas, and terrific New Year.

        Billybuc Family and love everywhere I look. At least that's how each day begins and ends. The rest of the day is a working progress. Wishing your wonderful family much joy and kindness during Christmas and into the bright beautiful new year. Happiness is a feeling we can trigger anytime we want. I keep pressing the button and like a kid at Christmas I don't want to stop.

        Happy Holidays, my friend. I love this piece of writing. Give me the peace of solitude, some hot chocolate, and surround me with love. Heaven right here on Earth. :)
