Did you re-gift your childhood???

Posted 12-27-2011 at 09:05 AM by lauriebear

Today is 12/27/2011, a time now when most of the world is starting to look towards New Year’s Eve and resolutions for the New Year. My question is this to you MMC, if you were part of the Countdown to the season I was honored with the privileged to have post #3, on the countdown. I asked everyone to re-gift their childhood, and experience Christmas with the heart of a child again. Did you? How many wrapped up a gift for themselves to open and experience Christmas with the innocents of a child again? I know I did, I wrapped it up and gave it to myself this season and I am not sure if this had anything to do with it but I must admit I had a wonderful time!!! I found myself being just a little kinder, a little more forgiving, and just in general understanding. I stated in this post that “Christmas, not New Years Day, is a time when we can start anew, fresh, begin again, be reborn, however you may want to look at it. You see it really is the perfect time, for this is when we are...

Christmas Family

Posted 11-11-2011 at 08:05 AM by caninemom3

Many years ago a couple took a journey because of a census. The husband led the way with his wife seated on their donkey. She was growing quite tired and weary as their destination was so far and she was expecting her first child soon.

When they arrived there was not any place they could stay. The only shelter available was in a place where cattle are kept and there was no bed for her baby.

When he was born there were no fancy hospitals, no monitors to make sure he and his mother were okay, nothing but coldness and uncertainty about the future.

The mother and her husband knew everything would be fine as they had great faith and they were right.

As we celebrate Christmas let us remember it does not take money, extravagant presents, or bounties of fattening foods. It just takes being with the ones who are your family and being together. Let us embrace those we love and count our blessings and be kind to one another even if we have...

Nani And The Christmas Ornament

Posted 11-03-2011 at 10:21 PM by caninemom3

I will never forget the Thanksgiving of 1975. It was a truly different and unforgetable Thanksgiving.

At the time, my husband David and I were living in our first home and as luck would have it that year, it was his turn to work midnights the week of Thanksgiving. Knowing that we would not be making it to our parents' homes on the day itself, we celebrated with them earlier.

When Thanksgiving Day itself arrived I was rather blue and lonely. Here it was, Thanksgiving, a day to not only be thankful, but for our family the very start of Christmas Season and while my husband rested in our upstairs bedroom, I watched the Thanksgiving Day parade on TV in a blue fog.

I was POSITIVE this was going to be the WORST Thanksgiving EVER. Until the phone rang.

It was my dear sister. Her name is Margaret but I call her Nani because of the movie, Lilo And Stitch. She too was lonely, and also had the same blue fog about her. She wondered if she...

A Dream Of A Dream

Posted 03-28-2011 at 03:44 PM by caninemom3

Sleep deprivation and exhaustion can play funny and quirky tricks on us. They can make us not only tired but sometimes I think bring us to the point of hallucinating if we are tired enough.

Since starting midnight shift for my new job in February I have not slept very well except on my evenings of Friday and Saturday both of which I am off. Then I REALLY sleep. The sleep of exhaustion replete with snoring and (eweeee !!) drooling, the whole nine yards. At least I do manage to get "caught up" somehow on the rest I need.

Today started like so many Mondays. This morning at 7:30 when I finished working, I got a bite of breakfast and then went to bed. The only thing missing was the thing I needed most, sleep. I tried to just relax, tried counting polar bears as one member of MMC member suggested I do (Thanks Track !!) but nothing. Not even drowsy. I got up, I laid back down, I got up, I laid back down. I became even more heavy with exhaustion than before....

For My Christmas Family

Posted 02-25-2011 at 11:13 AM by caninemom3

Dear Lord:

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed
This tiny little prayer
Keeps running through my head.

God bless my mom and dad,
And other family.
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do.
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Bless my computer too.

Now I know that it's not normal
To bless a mother board,
But listen just a second
While I explain to you my Lord.

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds & ends
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my FRIENDS.

I know so much about them
[B]By the kindness that they give[/B]
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you
We share in what life brings us
...
