This is all about a happy holiday season and the things you give (up) and what gets done (or not)!
I'll start with what I've given and hope it makes a difference. I've given a donation to my favorite charity, which helps domestic animals that are found to not have a happy life. My hope is their lives are made better. All animals should be spoiled.
I also planted eight trees, maple, redwood, birch, and others, to help clarify the air. Not to mention more shade and beauty all around.
I compliment people for no reason at all. Everyone should feel good about themselves, which can spread like a smile.
Moving on, I've given up trying to get a whole novel read this month. Too many things keeping me busy. By the time I want to sit down and soak in a great story, my heavy eyelids win out.
I always have a list of "Things to Do". Now, this list can get out of hand. I love to cross off what gets done, hoping to leave time to read or write. Unfortunately, there's a pen laying around ready to keep adding necessary ideas. The list never ends, and my lonely book or e-reader sits on the table glaring at me. I think I made that up!
Overall, I've gotten a lot done and given my time resourcefully. Yet, I won't give up on reading and writing or eventually getting another story read or written!
Keep your holiday season happy and peaceful!
