Christmas: It is great to know that…

Christmas 2012

Christmas 2012

With the hectic holiday season and  Christmas fast approaching, here at Incoming Bytes  I think we are wonderfully blessed.   Some things are especially nice to see. It’s great to know that:

  • We awoke to see another day!  The bones weren’t objecting too badly
  • The mind is working just fine. The muse is chattering away, and no wonder, because
  • it’s snowing gently and  beginning to look a lot like  Christmas,
  • Everyone I know, care about and love  is healthy and still kicking
  • The pups are happy. Tilly the Tall and Ebony the Short found bunny-tracks out on the walking trail,  but not the bunny.
  • The walking trails are still passable with only a couple of inches of snow
  • Snow falling on the snowman out in the yard will ensure he won’t melt
  • The end of the world isn’t happening quite yet, it’s still a good idea to plan for next year.
  • Somewhere in the dust of time, there’s a seat for that fancy Mayan unicycle wheel everyone thinks is a calendar
  • The universe is unfolding precisely as it is supposed to do
  • People at the malls respond– if we are brave enough to smile first
  • Pretty, gracious ladies, young and old, do appreciate doors opened for them
  • Children are laughing and happy
  • Beautiful poetry warms the soul at Poetic Parfait with Christy Birmingham
  • Seed and flower catalogs are already here to dream about while watching those snowflakes gently floating down
  • Old St. Nick didn’t get stuck in the chimney last year
  • There are reindeer tracks all over the back field
  • The Muse hasn’t become overwhelmed with Christmas ‘music’
  • Morgidoo’s Christmas Carol, my Christmas classic  eBook, still warms the heart
  • We remain capable of expressing love of our family and friends wherever they may be
  • Mother Nature has been kind to us, we are surviving, blessed with food and what we need, even if we don’t always get what we desire
  • Our faith in the basic good within humanity persists, –surprisingly– in spite of horrific global events and human tragedies.
  • Our belief in God allows us peace within. Above all, it’s great to know that……
  • There’s more to Christmas than getting gifts. Let us celebrate the true meaning. 
  • I can hear bells ringing....

Merry Christmas, everyone. *Wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Stay safe, and please do not drink and drive.


Is that Incoming I hear?
