The Holidays are here!

Ah..Yes.. the most “wonderful” time of year bringing out every emotion known to folks in the USA…from genuine goodwill to snapping anger. I have the pleasure of working at a very busy kiosk serving cups of happiness for a well known, well loved and well hated coffee company in a “destination” mall.

I love my job…..most of the time.

From now until January I will easily get my 10k steps in even though I don’t have a Fitbit to prove it. I will hustle and breathe deep as I wait on one person after another after another after another……

My intention for this holiday season is to be kind, patient and fast because most are stressed and in a hurry. Many will have loved ones pushing their buttons, financial and/or health concerns or the aching longing of connection. Others that love this time of year grinning ear to ear. And let’s not forget the children, teenagers and grumpy old men.

I intend to make memorable moments for people as they pass through the NEVER ENDING line………..

Wish me luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

May you have many Thanks to count..I sure know I do

To you my dear readers I give my heartfelt thank you for reading my words…

May your holiday time be filled with moments of pure joy

The Library

I LOVE the public library! Since I was a little kid I’ve had a library card. Back then librarians and card catalogs helped me discover books to read. Or I just roamed around until a book jumped of the shelf.

Now from the comfort of my own home I log into my library account and quickly put an item on hold. My local library website is easy to navigate and has the latest books, movies, cds, etc. I receive emails when my item is in plus alerts when it’s due! No late fees for me!

When I pick my dvd and/or books up there is usually a lot of activity…folks enjoying the butterfly garden outside, perhaps an event in one of the rooms, the used bookstore, kids playing in the colorful area designed for them, people using the computers and/or printers and of course the jigsaw puzzle table.

I am so glad my local library embraces technology AND community.

I sure hope they never go out of style.

Do you enjoy your local library?

Emotions 

Emotions. I feel mine. I don’t ignore them. This evening I am dancing with anger. I feel it to my core…deep, deep within.  I find it humorous when anger is raging through my body, thoughts and energy field I get so much done! Anger spurs me into constructive action as I gain years this lifetime. When I was younger anger led to destruction…. I bet I’m not the only one.

Meditation taught me to be an observer of myself.  I watch the anger release and float away replaced with thoughts of peace, gratitude and love
