GIVING THANKS – Promote Yourself

 Fall-greeting-and-happy-Thanksgiving

So many things to be grateful for,
where does a person start?
By giving thanks for air we breathe
and the steady beat of our heart.

For cloud bursts filled with welcome rain,
for the sun’s light every day,
for millions of stars shining at night,
far off in our Milky Way.

Gratitude for family and friends
with their unique connections,
each one offering love and support,
sharing their soul reflections.

Family pets, shepherd’s flocks,
herds of cattle on ranches,
wheat fields, corn fields, orchards
bearing fruit on all their branches.

Fish in the seas, birds in the air,
waterfalls, mountains and streams,
our never-ending abilities
to pursue our wildest dreams.

Our homes, whether grand or humble,
keeping us safe and warm.
Our knowledge, ever increasing,
on how to weather each storm.

There’s no end of things to be grateful for
all the time, not just Thanksgiving Day.
With an attitude of gratitude,
we can handle what comes our way.

PLASTICITY – Promote Yourself

2115252155a06b4024

Listening without a word spoken,
Loving without a promise broken,
Laughing when anger provoked;
Releasing strident memories evoked.

Expecting only what you would give,
Eliciting only what you would forgive,
Erasing what past wrongs befell;
Allowing love to crack your hardened shell.

Molding a future from lessons once tossed,
Melding a life renewed with one uncrossed,
Making dreams awaken by accepting tenderness;
Keeping grounded by embracing nature’s sacredness.

Finding faith inside yourself,
Freeing ties that have worn upon your shelf,
Fixing challenges one obstacle at a time,
Being comfortable with the climb.

Cuddling with your loving friend,
Caressing her mind with stories on end,
Collecting happiness as we meet,
To bring a union of souls upon its feet.

(Dedicated to the One I Love)

Clumsy santa’s nightmare

 

father-christmas-7
 

As Santa prepared for Christmas

Putting all the toys in his sack

As he lifted the toys on his sleigh

It was then that he hurt his back

 

He went to the front of his sleigh

To make sure Rudolph had a shiny nose

It was then one the reindeers

Stood on one of Santa’s toes

 

Santa laughed it off as quite funny

As he hobbled back to his sleigh

Just as he was about to get in

The reindeer rose up and flew away

 

Santa by this time was angry

And took it out on Snowman Pete

Santa pushed Snowman Pete over

 Ending up in a very large heap

 

It was then that Santa realized

As he awoke from his bed that night

For he had experienced a terrible nightmare

Giving Santa a horrible fright

 

So Santa was not so clumsy

At last Santa was on his way

All the toys were delivered

To the children on Christmas Day
