Merry Christmas to All

Good Morning, all.

   It's about 0800, Saturday Christmas Eve...  I have no idea when this posts.  I'm still blogger illiterate.  But, I think it will be today.  I hope....

  Anyway.  It's about 0800.  I got up about 3 hours ago, wrapping gifts I'd yet to wrap and placing them under my Charlie Brown Christmas isn't really, but it nearly looks like one.  For those of you unfamiliar, look it up (HERE(
  I like my tree, even if others don't.

  Yesterday my uncle and cousin came to visit.  They will be coming again today.  These two are sort of alone for Christmas as that aunt who died last year about this time was my cousin's mother and my uncle's ex.  (I got her in the divorce...she moved to just a mile or so down the road from me while he kept the old homestead in another state.)  So even though my cousin and I didn't get along for years, I won't turn anyone out of my home on Christmas
....well, I guess I still have some issues with two people who just would need to find another inn.  I would let them use my phone to do so, does that count?
  Yesterday started out a bit rough, and that's ok.  It was uncomfortable, I bet, for my cousin.  And, if someone comes into my house, I expect them to respect me and my home...he did in every way.  So, as things worked through the day and conversations developed, stuff improved.
  It's difficult to forgive someone.  Christmas is a wonderful time to do it.  If you have anyone in your life that has angered you, hurt you or others.... if you can find a way, forgive.  Harder done than said, I know, but worth it.   I will keep tring with my unforgiven one.

Hello Randy. Are we truly alone when we are remembered? Some of my most peaceful, safe, remembered times where when I was totally way from other people, a child spending his day in the woods and fields away from people, away from others, alone some would day. But to tell you the truth, during those times I never felt lonely. I felt...nice.

So even though you were alone, I hope you felt nice, whole, loved and happy. Because I was thinking of you. Ron and I wished you a happy and merry day.

Hi Scottie;
I was looking through the blog and noticed that my response to your comment didn't post. Sorry.
My response to you, was, that you were on my mind as well. I wished I lived closer, or that Gracie was open to long rides in the truck.
I think many of us have holidays spent alone. I took a ride and noticed a number of people just sort of watching the day go by. Most were older, looking sad and tired. And then would come a car full of family heading off to Grandma's house - kids laughing and jumping in the seats, dad just looking like he was hoping to get through the day.
In many ways, a holiday is just another day. It's odd that we place such importance on it.
Thank you for the thoughts and the love;
