My Holidays And Other Comments

Never too Late to wish a Happy New Year like this green eyed beauty is doing.

Every year at this time I am overcome with the need to improve and every year I fall short. However it is my philosophy that I must just keep trying my best to be at my best one day at a time. I think for the most part I meet that criteria.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Holiday Season! Was invited to friends for every occasion including Christmas Eve Day! Wonderful food, cordial company, and I was 'ferried' there and back on all those occasions as well as extra dinners and parties.

Having said that it amazes me how fast these holidays seem to fly by since I turned over 50 which has been a year or two passed. It starts me wondering why the time continuum seems to change so much over the years. When we are young it seems it takes forever for Christmas to come and a blink of an eye for all of the celebrating to end. It was the same with Easter Day when I was little. As I grew into my preteen and teen years things went by at the pace of a snail. And as I went through my child rearing years I never seemed to have enough time to do anything. Which brings me to the present when everything that is pleasant seems to go much too fast and unpleasant situations appear to drag along. One thing I must remember is that time itself is a man made concept and perhaps therein lies the flaw. Man made it and man observes it . Perhaps our perceptions get gummed up with experience. Anyway as a friend of mine often says...."That's my story and I am sticking to it!"

Happy New Years To all of my friends out there!
I hope that all of you will have a Blessed and Prosperous 2010.
