As We Approach Christmas

Tonight is Thanksgiving. I cannot even begin to count all the blessings I have in my life. I think of all the people here in our country and other countries who have nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. And here I am. I never want for food or warmth or any of the creature comforts that every human being and yes even "animals" should have a right to. It is not because of anything I did or do that I have all these blessings. I believe they are all a gift from God, our Father.

Now that we are approaching Christmas I think about Mary and Joseph and the way they found their way into history.

What was it like for them to become the caretakers on Earth of the Messiah ?? Did they see him as the Messiah ?? or just their baby ?? I wonder....

I used to think of them as I would see them in paintings or depicted in the movies of my youth, always holy and always devout. Never doubting or getting angry. In short I did not see them as human, which...

Mrs. Carey's Fruit Cake

Posted 11-23-2010 at 04:06 PM by MerryCarey (MerryCarey's Blog)

Some of you may know that my father passed away in October, leaving me the last surviving member of the family I grew up in. It also leaves me the sole owner and guardian of a well-worn index card that bears a typed recipe with handwritten amendments, and is stained with baking ingredients and years of use.

Fruitcake was never a joke in our house. I suppose I was in high school before I was aware that in many households, Christmas fruitcake was a despised object of ridicule. But not the fruitcake my parents made from a recipe passed down through my family. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, various friends and neighbors never failed to remind my parents: “Don’t forget to save me some fruitcake again this year!”

On Thanksgiving Day, our kitchen was always busy—but not with turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Instead, our kitchen table groaned with ingredients and a huge roasting pan in which my mother and father compounded the batter...

When Did I get Old?

I sit here tonight with this one thought, when did I get old? I have in recent weeks decided to grow a goatee, which I do every now and then, it has been growing in and I noticed I have quite a few white hairs in it now, it is normally as red as Kris Kringle's from Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, but the white hairs just stick out to me. Watching part of the American Music Awards last night and I had never heard of most of these bands. The American Pie movies aren't funny to me any longer, I would rather watch a documentary over a sitcom, and I read the labels on food containers now. I know as I will be entering my late 30's in just over a month I am closer to 50 than I am to 20. Ughh!

Perplexed

I must admit it. I am perplexed about certain decisions in my life. The main decision concerns my job. I feel blessed to have a job yet the company I work for has not been the most caring company I must say.

I guess I can't complain too much because I do work at home after all. However, I think with any job a part of the compensation should be respect and a sense that your employer values you and your services.

I am a medical transcriptionist and have been a transcriptionist for 17 years. In essence I listen to doctors dictate and I type what they say about patients. It is neither as hard nor as easy as it sounds. It just takes practice and I find though I have been doing it a long time I never get to the point where it is not challenging.

The company I work for is in Santa Monica, California. The problem I am having is in regard to an incident which happened last Sunday, November 14, 2010.

When I logged in at 6:30 EST a.m. (which...
