Home Again And Love It So Much

So Happy To Walk Through The Door

We went outside to do some errands

The traffic wasn't bad and the weather was warmer than usual

Most people seemed nice

Here it is two days before Christmas

Everybody healthy and doing o.k.

Rain on the way for Christmas day

We were doing some food shopping

No crazy rush or long lines

That is just fine

Finishing off leftovers

My wife baking some chocolate cookies

I am the dishwasher

We each race to grab a beater from the mixer

They taste so good

We both are off till Christmas

Lighting our lights and relaxing

For everyone who needs a pick me up

Some things are beautiful just as they are

Sending the warmest of wishes

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Linda Rogers I keep reaching into my gut and never stop trying to pull out nice thoughts. I think I went too far this time I pulled out something that looks like an egg omelet. Oh well, better luck next time. Thank you for all the sweet memories that add up to wonderful times inside and out. Life is full of many surprises. Some I will never be able to figure out. Have a beautiful night.

Peggy Woods Wishing you and your family the Christmas happiness you see in Christmas specials on t.v. Where no matter what happens everyone loves each other and in the end family and friends pull together to make life better. Thank you so much for visiting and sharing. Have a great night.

Bill Holland With so many things to do and people to see you sure get around. I am convinced no Pandemic will ever hold you back. Sending you a Merry Christmas that not only keeps you safe but gives you the beauty you always will remember. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. The days leading to the nights. The nights leading to new days. Good changes keep us moving forward. One day we will see the world in a whole different light.

John Hansen There are so many things to be thankful for where do we begin. I guess we start at the bottom and work our way up. Enjoying all the little things that turn into big things one day. Did that day come and go and I didn't even notice. Having the ability to share so many stories/poems over the years and finding all your comments that make me smile. Thank you for your kind wishes and sending love back your way. It doesn't make sense to enjoy tomorrow unless you enjoyed all the days that lead up today. Have a great night.

Enjoy the small moments of each day with your wife. It sounds like you are doing that. Here is hoping for a much better year to come for all the masses of people who are without jobs, hungry, and who have lost loved ones this year. Enjoy your holidays, and stay safe!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas to you and your wife, Dream On, and Charlotte the cat too. Stay blessed and safe, and may 2021 be even better.

Linda Rogers This is year is definitely unlike any year I remember. There is so much to learn about Covid-19. There are so many people dealing with illness and fear. I try to reel it in and when I am with my wife we do all the things we have always had to do and love to share. From food shopping to paying bills. Going to work and trying to find the time to do laundry, clean the house, and cook. Sometimes the simple joys of just spending time together and helping each other bring out the best of us. Many family and friends won't see each other this year. We will talk on the phone. When this is all over and we can see each other I hope the bonds will be greater than ever. Thank you so much for being the first to respond to my poem. To all the people who are struggling and trying to make ends meet I hope things get better and life changes and eventually we can put the bad times behind us. No matter what holiday you celebrate may love always comfort you and peace follow you. Life is not what we have but what we make of it. Have beautiful dreams that only get bigger and nicer.

Sending back warm holiday thoughts. This year is a little different with Covid but finding the silver lining by doing things I have ignored, like reading books, connecting more with friends, etc. Thank you for the uplifting article.
