From my desk: 12/22/2019

I had the pleasure of celebrating Christmas with my beautiful daughter, Lindsay, and wonderful partner, David. Because of other circumstances we would have been unable to enjoy Christmas together on the actual Christmas morning, hence our rescheduling. I have to say that with the Christmas music playing, a nice dinner before us, and an exchange of gifts it felt like a perfectly wonderful Christmas morning. This goes to show that it isn’t about just giving presents, it is about being present! I have had a rough seventeen months and whether it has made me more aware of my appreciation or knocked it into me, I appreciate the people I love so very much. You can never tell when you won’t have them anymore, take each day and enjoy each other!

I will be wishing the happiest of holidays to all of my friends, family, and now, WordPress family, as the days of festivities are alive for many. No matter what you celebrate, or don’t for that matter, just enjoy life. That, my friends, is my professional and educated advice!

Peace to you all.

A Name A Day: Richard

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy!
