A Whole Lot of Living…


When there’s a choice between writing about living…or living…choose living! ~Bertha

Wow…it seems I took a week’s vacation…it wasn’t something that I exactly planned…although…if I’d really thought about it…I would have known that it was going to happen…

First…my daughters and families were here…which meant that there was usually either a lot of commotion…or someone sleeping in my guestroom/office…then…there was a quick trip out of town…and…here we are…a week later…and I’m finally back in front of my computer…moving my fingers as my thoughts appear on the screen…

At first…I was a bit antsy about not blogging…until…Bertha…reminded me…I spend a lot of time…writing about living…but that is a mostly solitary activity…and…that…it was perfectly okay…necessary even…to spend some time…surrounded by those I love the most…doing what I write about…living…

Of course she was right…she’s always right…blogging could wait…but…those hugs and kisses had an expiration date…as they all packed up and moved on to the next stop on their holiday trips…

And…I must say…it was one of the best Christmases I’ve had…I cooked…old favorites…washed dishes…cooked…washed dishes…washed dishes…washed dishes…well you get the picture…the important thing was…I felt good…and my family was around me…and…Bertha…was right…there was a whole lot of living going on…
