January-the End

Be still, fall in love with life again.

Slow living, great food, comfort, surround self
with what makes you happy!

In solitude there is healing.

glass pickle ornament

I wanted to share this story with you.
In Germany, the pickle ornament was considered very special.
On Christmas eve the tree was always traditionally decorated, and
for good luck, the pickle was the last ornament to be hung by parents into the green boughs.
The children allowed to view the tree in the morning, would start searching
for the pickle ornament. 
Whoever found the pickle first, got something extra left by St. Nicholas.
Something to think about for next year, as from the looks of many homes, many of you are still 
removing your home decor and lights.

I really don't understand how many people
take these stunning shots of themselves?
Not sure where I'm pointing.!
Oka well here it is on trend without makeup
and just came in from the cold.
For now, i'll put the cell phone on charge and head to bed.

Last week traveling on the fast ferry got me thinking about children.
Many all over the ferry.
I was a 50's child and my son a 70's child (both of us above, he 3 yr old- me 5 yr old)
and compared to today such a contrast.
Usually I bring a book/magazine to read, sometimes I doze off.
Well, of late parents mostly Mothers are reading aloud, yup loud
to their child, children.
I love books and children BUT why are we subjected to listen to your story telling?
We were raised to speak softly in public, what happened to that?
Everyone seems to be getting louder.
In restaurants, on cell phones walking down a street, why?
Your infringing on our space!
Lack of manners, classless?
Your children mock their parents behavior-think it's time parents you change.
Most are darlin and well dressed, BUT I don't see, hear manners, wonder why?
May I ask those traveling with your darlin children to make them aware
of space, noise, speaking low, while teaching yourself the same. PLEASE
as our society is already a mess, and it starts with the child.
Remember that song "Teach Your Children Well"? by 
Crosby,Stills & Nash...
I call it the entitlement crowd, work on it parents!

A New Year, reflecting back and looking forward.
Purge, organize, rethink patterns, 
make lists, set intentions. Think positive and pray.
Be grateful, work on calm, 
continue on my theme of life, slow living...
