On the Other Hand
On the Other Hand — That four-letter word PDF Print

As I sit here writing this I am anticipating our impending snowfall. A check at 11:15 p.m., the white stuff was falling.

I know, I know, most don’t like to hear that four-letter word — S - N - O - W. It means shoveling and salting and vehicles getting stuck, difficult driving, longer commutes, etc.

I was talking to my mother a few days ago and she said something that struck fear in my heart. Yes, my gentle, loving mother said what no one wants to hear: “Ya know, it’s just three weeks until Christmas!”

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!

The Thanksgiving leftovers are put away, the mountains of dishes washed, the football games taken in and the dog is snoring contentedly on the couch.

Another successful Thanksgiving meal with family.

Now it’s time to turn my attention to the bare Christmas tree.

Where has the year gone?

It’s already November and we’ve had our first snowfall.

To many people’s surprise, we’ve already had a Christmas story in the paper.

I’m sure with the economy, the Delphos Community Christmas Project will need every bit of time they have to pull together a nice holiday for those who need a little boost. It’s tough out there and every penny will count.

It will be that way for many of us, I fear. Most of us are fortunate and have jobs. It may not be the one we want or need but a job none the less.

And here comes the quandry: What place will Thanksgiving have this year?

 
Longing for Lotus Leaf PDF Print

Whew! Sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with things.

Just as I was getting into full Thanksgiving mode, we learned Lotus injured her knee and may have to have surgery next week and the family won’t be able to come home for Thanksgiving.

Big - fat - bummer!

I haven’t seen my husband’s sister, her husband or Lotus since they were home for Thanksgiving three years ago. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up and, especially, decorating the tree with Lotus. My husband and I have it all planned out. We’ll go from Thanksgiving to Christmas in a few short hours.

I am hoping to share the stories behind some of my ornaments and drink hot chocolate and eat pumpkin pie and just have auntie time and make some memories.

My other nieces and nephews are grown and scattered and some have children of their own.
