Living … One day at a time.

HEllo,  good morning and it would be Monday, December 16, 2019.

 

FROM THE TOP OF MY HEAD ON THIS MORNING:

Tis the week before Christmas.

And all through the world not a human was sitting.

Not even Grandma or Grandpa.

Everyone was running about, here and there.

There was shouting and tears and even some fears.

Would Santa get their letters?

Were the rumours all true?

Would he fulfil their lists?

Would be bring Janie her Barbie and Jimmy his first kiss?

No one could be sure, especially this year.

There were rumours abound.

No one really knew for certain.

Could it possibly be true?

That Santa & his Mrs. were missing.

I heard that they were calling it quits.

After several hundred years who could blame them.

But then who would replace them?

I also heard that they had retired to a tropical island.

What about Rudolph and Comet and Donner and Blitzen and all the reindeer?

What about the Elves?

What about the North Pole?

I guess this is something that we just have to wait and see.

Will he arrive?

With his usual glee?

Or will there be empty stockings this year?

My heart aches with the thought of no Santa Clause.

What a world without that jolly old guy it would be?

I don’t know.

Patience is something we humans forget.

So I promise this year I will be patient and see.

If there is no Santa this year.

I do not know.

Christmas will be different … that much I know.

And to ALL a great day.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 2nd day of December, 2014.

Only 23 days till Christmas Eve.

This morning as I was getting ready I realized that I was humming a multitude of different songs from Christmas movies and television shows.

The catchy ones ….

The Grinch

Frosty the Snowman

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

There are so many.

I think that some of the most “catchy” and recognizable songs and definitely ones that withstand the test of time are the movies made mainly for children.

The lyrics are rhythmic and so much fun …. ones that you hum all day long.

I must fit in some of those shows during this hectic holiday season.

Also I just remembered I must change my voicemail message ….

I always put on some Christmas music and play it in the background and then give my annual holiday greeting.

Yup …must do that……

Well I guess it is almost time to leave for work.

Seems like we just got home.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

If you have the chance listen to some of those classic songs …. and instantly a smile will appear on your face.

Special Hello to: lovers of all things Christmas….

Always, Carol and Alvin
