OK so I am awake at 2:30 am and feeling reeeeaalllyyy low. Oh yeah, it says Happy Topic-lol
I wanted everybody to think of a Christmas tradition they did as kids or now
I want everyone to describe the best present they ever got
I want everyone to make a wish for the New Year
oh and I thought it might be nice to remember those we have lost this year ina positive manner-good memories, not sad.
Thought it might take our minds off all the other garbage. Oh, and Joyce, wherever youare, you too!!!

!. Tradition: we went to a duck pond and way up the hill was this big beautiful home, and all these strangers cam together with candles and caroled in the sno(upstate New York) Then the owners came down and invited us into the house for cocoa and cake...also trying to stay awake for midnight mass and my mother's high clear voice.
2. Best present (we're talking material) a gorgeous 3 speed blue bike and a pair of go-go boots. oh and jade earrings my Dad picked out for me
3wish for 2012-bring those soldiers home!!! Root out all the corporate pigs that sent our jobs overseas while they makt 30 million and don't pay a penny in tax and neither does the company. That my daughter, husband and I can find the laughter and love we used to have, that we all get the right meds or none at all.....let's see, all animal and child abusers get put to death
Well, that 's a cheery note to end on...I wish you smiles, painfree days and the warmth of your loving family (and no fights at the dinner table)

I don't care about the gifts, it is the people we surround ourselves with, trying to live a life God would approve of, get our priorities straight, forgive those who have hurt you, care for those who can't, give to those in need, God gives us a chance to rise up above all the garbage we mire ourselves in and gives us an opportunity to incorporate Jesus' lessons and sacrifice.
Surely someon has good memories, gee whiz, even a cool sleigh ride.....
