Talking To The Master

I had made a post to a thread here on the site called "Christmas Present Take Or Pass". I had posted the gift of being able to talk with any historic figure. George Broderick Jr.'s answer really started me thinking and thank goodness for George for posting it. He listed one of the people he would like to talk to as Jesus. What a wonderful conversation that would be !! To ACTUALLY talk face to face with HIM !! I imagine myself sitting across from Him. I can see him in my mind's eye. He has hair to His shoulders and of course a beard and He has the kindest and saddest eyes I could ever imagine. To be in His physical presence would be so peaceful, so full of a glowing kind of love I think. The kind of love not found on this earth, not ever experienced by me. Of course, He would have the scars from His first time on this earth. What would I say ?? Would I have the courage to speak ?? I think I would want to tell Him that I know I need to be more like Him. I would ask him why He even...

The Start Of The Magic

It's coming, I feel it. Right now it is a kind of subtle giddiness inside me, a vague sense of excitement, an inside kind of glow. The Christmas season is just around the corner and I feel it !!! Do you feel it as well ??? I was in Rite Aid yesterday and they have Fall things out, which to me is a direct connection to Christmas !!! I am starting to hear songs in my head........."...angels we have heard on high..." Or .........."Chestnuts roasting on an open fire......" As this excitement continues to grow I always tend to grow more hopeful for the world. I am a little idealistic but each year as Christmas approaches I always have the hope that maybe people will finally realize we are all part of the same family, the human family and that some of the silly divisions between us will abate because of that realization and that everyone perhaps will be touched by the magic that is Christmas. The lights, the tree, the decorations, the carols, the time spent quietly appreciating...

A Sadness Of My Profession

Posted 08-05-2010 at 12:28 PM by caninemom3

I have been a medical transcriptionist for the last 16, nearly 17 years. This means that I listen to doctors dictate about patients and whatever may be ailing them. I type many of the medical specialities that are in existence. One of the specialties I type has to do with drug and alcohol addiction. Every now and again a patient's story gets to me. It should not, I know, as I do not know any of these folks but sometimes I get overwhelmingly empathetic. Today I typed a lady who was just 42 and a heroin addict. She also was a mother. She readily admitted to the doc that she was an addict and not ready to quit. I know some folks will feel that she makes and has made her own choices. I feel that way too to an extent but I still felt incredibly sad for her and her family. I have typed many reports like this over the course of time I have been employed in transcription. Why her ?? What was it about her story that bothers me so much ? I don't know. All I could do at one point was stop typing...

Year Round Christmas Spirit

Posted 08-04-2010 at 09:59 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As I have started to see the Christmas stuff begin to filter slowly into the stores, it makes me think of how people always complain it is "too early to think of Christmas." I know people are entitled to their opinions, but these people seem to be vociferous in theirs, and make it known enough where in the past they made a Hallmark store move their ornament collection to the back of the store until a more appropriate time. What is that appropriate time though? All of us who share in this wonderful website would probably like to see a little Christmas section in each store year round, to help fill a need of that joyous season. I start to get that excitement when I see the first signs Christmas enter the stores, I feel a warmth of happiness like when you see a loved one you haven't seen in a long while. These first signs are so important especially during these long hot days of summer, it makes you realize Christmas is just over four months away. I have worked with people in the...

Let Hunting Season Begin!

Posted 08-02-2010 at 12:13 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I get the itch every year around this time. It is a season fraught with tradition and precision -- everything has to be done "just so".

I'm not sure which is greater: going for the kill or just preparing for the hunt?

No -- not the deer hunt. (I did that once, city boy that I am, and can testify of the legendary tales told by the campfire and likewise the less-than-legendary acts committed while on the prowl). Frankly,I don't have the stomach for killing animals and have never again done it.

The hunt of which I speak is the yearly search for the Christmas ornament I will send to my yet-unkown ornament exchange partner.

After doing this for a few years I've decided there is real art in the hunt for an ornament. It is not like you can go pick out Martha Stewart's best and send it off feeling good about yourself.

No way. The ornament exchange is an intimate deal. You have to get to know your trading partner and learn...
