It is 5:22 AM on Thursday, November 21st 2018. It is the day before Thanksgiving.
It is hard to believe we’re right in the middle of the holiday season already. My life has been a blur with the new job and the months have flown by. Usually I like to really absorb myself into the holidays starting with Halloween. But aside from an adventure in Texas this year for Halloween I wasn’t able to immerse myself into it as much as I would have liked.
Holiday season is upon us. Halloween came and went and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I’m just slightly late in the time frame I like to buy Christmas presents; I really enjoy getting my two boys great gifts but must get them before they sell out.
I just finished the previous post but wanted to close it and just write down a few thoughts in a new post.
Life has been a blur recently and I don’t even know myself where I’ve been. I certainly haven’t been writing, nor working out much. I am in constant wonder at how fast life goes buy, especially when work is so busy, that I catch myself and try to take in the special moments when I’m with my kids. They are growing up so fast and I am aging. Life is going much more quickly than before and not stopping.
It is 4:25 AM on Friday October 26th, 2018. I woke up at three o’clock and could not go back to sleep. So I got up, did my morning chores and now have the TV fireplace with its peaceful morning music on and the Amish fireplace is on as well. It has been a long time since I’ve been up so early with a lot of time to do as I wish.
It is Monday morning at 8:33 AM. Usually this is one of the worst times to write due to Monday morning work but I wanted to get a few things down that have been on my mind.
An acquaintance from my childhood put a message up on her Facebook saying “Be Inclusive, Be Kind.” She has a child with Downs Syndrome and so this message is of extreme importance to her. It struck me because she was Not inclusive and Not kind when she was a kid. My mom told me that when I was in kindergarten with this person she was asking for people to play with her. Apparently I said, “I’ll play with you,” to which she responded “No, not you.” I had forgotten this episode but my Mom never did and said she wanted to punch her kindergartener or not! Yes, I would feel the same if someone was mean like that to my kids.
