Hope this morning finds you all well and happy. I have changed my e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make a note of it. I have done this so I can access my mail when I am on the road which I am once in a while.
I have been remiss in wishing all our friends who look to us for support, an ear or a shoulder to cry upon. I know we have people of many nationalitites who check into the BB and I wish you Happy Holidays. Take the day to relax if you can and reflect on how good life has been and how good it will be again. We took Dianne’s advice and said the heck with all the trappings. I baked some cookies put up a tree and my son did the outdoor decorations. My wife had hand surgery and just had the stitches removed yesterday so me and the boy did it all. Boy do I respect what my wife does every year to make Christmas special. What didn’t get done was put back in the decoration boxes and put away for next year.
But then I am like the folks in Whosville who were still happy on Christmas morning after the Grinch stole everything. I am happy for the reason for the season not the trappings. I have lived all over the world and have celibrated many holidays in different countries and enjoyed them all. I guess being raised as a Lutheran and Native American makes one more open to other religions and their holidays. So from my family to yours we wish you happy holidays and a Merry Christmas for those who celibrate it. I looked up a Souix saying last night that would have been good for this message but for the life of me I can’t remember it.
I wish you peace Jake George On-line Facilitator National Graves Disease Foundation
