Part III – The Natives – MY Scottish Journey

I’m pretty sure group tours are a great way to see and learn about your trip. Our family, however, have never taken a group tour or preplanned tour (The Great Wall of China was with a group but no one spoke english so it was just a magnificent guided walk). We love to get intoContinue reading “Part III – The Natives – MY Scottish Journey”

O Christmas Tree – Around The Burg

My last Christmas in New Jersey was momentous. My daughter-in-law and my youngest grandson took me to a Christmas Tree Farm. It was magical in so many ways. That day was cold and cloudy and the back drop of the farm was woods and wooden fences. They raised pigs there. We looked in on theContinue reading “O Christmas Tree – Around The Burg”

You Are Loved – You are a Gift

Good Morning Dear Readers.  Here we are, the 14th of December 2015.  This time of year can be so “busy” and “hectic”…….

Season of Hope

The times we are living in can be quite frightening.  The news stations alone are terrifying some days. Now that it’s the Christmas Season, or Holiday Season, a lot of people out there get melancholy or even deeply depressed.  Some long for the old days or dwell on hard times that have hit them duringContinue reading “Season of Hope”

Blogging Bliss

It is the day before Christmas, here, in The Middle.  The beauty of difference is that we can all celebrate, or not celebrate, our holidays as we please. Our family celebrates Christmas.  The true meaning of celebrating the birth of Christ is a big deal to us.  Also, I was raised in Christmas.  Christ mayContinue reading “Blogging Bliss”

O Christmas Tree

I have a Christmas Tree story.  Many years ago, when the kids were quite young, we lived in a mountain town in California.  The town and outlying neighborhoods rested at about 3500 feet in elevation.  We were in a valley, of sorts, and the higher peaks went up to about 6,000 to 8,000 feet.  TheyContinue reading “O Christmas Tree”

Thinking Too Small

I’ve mentioned before that I have a passion for seeing people progress into their destiny.  For seeing their potential and hopefully I can encourage them to get there. I am not a professional in that area.  Heck, I don’t even know what to call it.  It’s something that I can do. Let me tie theContinue reading “Thinking Too Small”

The Diversity of an American Christmas

Here are a couple of typical Christmas songs.  I do believe Christmas does mark the birth of The Saviour, Jesus Christ, but this time of year shows such a diversity.  I love that. I did not grow up in any particular religion, that came to me later in life.  So I have a warm mixtureContinue reading “The Diversity of an American Christmas”

Catch a Falling Star – Hope

It’s that time of year where we are inundated with thoughts of family, friends, food and gifts.  Everywhere you turn it’s there.  We have different names for the holiday season and different beliefs. It’s a time when memories pop up and some are not welcome and some are very welcome.  I have both.  I chooseContinue reading “Catch a Falling Star – Hope”
