Dear Friend,
I thank all of my heart that you have honored me with the common birthday of my dear mother. Thank you for the flowers, your kindness is appreciated by me very much. I'm very touched.
Although my mother has been dead for over 46 years, I still miss her. It has left a big gap in my life. But she's in my heart, and this always with me, albeit on a different level.
I again wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Best wishes and God Bless - Moni

Merry Christmas!

I have been working Christmas day for as long as I can remember. It has always been by choice. Although the double pay and a half is an incentive. It is the one day a year I know I can make a difference.

There are always the "ones" who are sitting by the elevator door waiting for their family to come. The "ones" who have no family but still hope for a visitor. The "ones" who's family can't come due to distance but they still hope. And the "ones" who have family but have long been forgotten.

There was a time when you could walk into a hospital or nursing home and visit with people. Now you have to go through "channels" you have to have clearance. In some cases if you want to volunteer to visit, you have to have a back ground check.

What has happened to us? We need each other so badly yet as a society we have been forced to part. As I walk through the stores and malls I can see people on the verge of tears. It is there ,right there under the surface, as time goes on it is getting harder for people to hide their pain.

The pain of what we are becoming in this treasured nation is worn on our peoples faces. Many have lost homes, jobs, and most of all hope. Hopes definition is, the emotional state which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. How simple a definition can be said yet it's meaning is so vital to us all.

We are in the season of "hope'" it is more than time for hope to return to us. It is time to bring it back . We can have hope for a brighter future, to be more kind to each other, to help one another through this, and to ease each others pain if it is only with a glance and a smile of I understand, I am standing here with you.

We are a strong stubborn nation, built on a foundation of caring and taking care of each other. We can't let hope leave us.

On a Christmas morning long ago a baby was born into this world to bring us everlasting life. That was the beginning of hope. That was our salvation and our link to peace. The grouping of the words Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, Peace, are seen everywhere at this time of year.

I am sending you my wish that those words will not be words but an ointment to wash away your pain, your uncertainty of tomorrow and to send you my hope, that Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace, are part of your life each and everyday of the New Year.

Cyber Christmas Hugs,

Thanksgivings Day Blessings...
Thanksgiving as a kid we had Halloween, then Thanksgiving, and then Christmas it was like leading up to the Super Bowl. In Minnesota it was almost worth the Halloween snow storm that does not stop until May. You got three wonderful holidays and it ended with presents. How much better could it get?

I remember one year my Mom had slaved over 4 pumpkin pies. She wanted them to cool quickly so she put them out on a ledge that actually was a cooling ledge right out side the kitchen window. It took about a minute and a half for the squirrels to find it. They had a party. There was about 7 of them swimming in her pies. I remember her standing at the window just looking out. All of us came running to see what she was looking at.

Squirrels were throwing pumpkin pie at each other one was running back and forth to feed another squirrel who was too frightened to approach the window. You could hear the holiday bliss and squirrels almost singing through the window. Their little furry faces were orange and they were chewing as fast as they could. Two of them thought it would be a good idea to take one home and were trying to drag a pie off.

I remember it was just mayhem out that window. Here she was, with 5 little children standing with her watching us, watch her face. None of us giggled or moved or even were breathing for a few minutes as we all stood there.

What would she do? She had been making pies for 2 days. I kept thinking she is going to explode any second. She left the window, went over to the freezer and pulled out 2 store bought frozen pies. Put them on the counter and looked at us kids.

In a low deep voice she said, "who did you think I was baking those pies for? The squirrels have to have Thanksgiving too".

It was so funny, I remember her reaction was almost as funny as what was going on outside that window. We laughed and watched. She was just going to be alright with this even if it killed her.

For days there were squirrels with stained orange faces jumping around the yard and all she would say is....Well, I know which ones did it, and I will be watching for them come Christmas.

Now I look back on those precious days so differently. It is about being together and seeing your family. Some that only are able to come for holidays due to distance. It is about seeing that one or two family members that always leave you shaking your head. It is about the new life, the babies and kids that are living the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas Super Bowl.

We all have our memories of those who have gone before, don't let those memories make you sad, keep them close to your heart because those memories are what keep them near to us, they live on, when we can smile and see the squirrels faces covered in pumpkin on a cold winters day.

May the Joy and Hope of Thanksgiving bring you into the Christmas season refreshed and ready to party on.

Cyber Hugs,

Angel day thank you, Matthew Clark

Grief is itself a medicine. - William Cowper

If I would have read this 12 years ago, I would have spit on the ground and screamed, are you crazy? In 12 years I have had a lot of medicine.

A medicine is a remedy, a remedy is therapy, that relieves pain, cures disease, or corrects a disorder.

So if you believe William, I have been suffering with a disorder and my medicine or remedy is grief. Seriously, grief spans out in front of our lives like a highway in the desert. It goes off into the sunset only to return with the dawn.

Just as you are about to except grief, the medicine of grief returns to be another almost road block in life. I have no idea where I am going with this. I know there is something to communicate here but I just can't find the words.

Maybe it's the Mary Poppins version of "just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down." You have been my spoon full of sugar on my fathers Angel Day.

You made it better and bearable and once again I was not alone on these tragic memorable days but you were all here with me. Thank you for the sugar and the willingness to be a part of today.

Cyber Hugs,

RE: Hello Marty,
Well Marty, the leaves are certainly blowing here and there & everywhere!!!!Some of our maple trees still have green leaves so we're no where near being finished with them.

Guess what? As you were talking about not needing the heavy jackets yet, well, you can change that for us here in Northwest Indiana. It has been snowing here today, nothing much, just these big beautiful flakes. It got to be so heavy that you couldn't see across the street but yet it was sunny and COLD! 25! Yesterday, for a while it was 62 and now look!

Well, I wish you and yours a wonderful weekend...

Hi Marty,
Thank you so much for your message, it brought a smile to my face. I would like also to add you as a "friend" if that would be okay. I have a lot of work and I'm not always here. I can speak a little English and I need some time for the translation. If you've time it's wonderful to sharing the school stories. I hope, you can understand my English. Hope to hear from you soon. With my best wishes - Maja
