I was asked an interesting question yesterday by a stranger at the mall. He asked me if I could go back to the last Christmas I had before I started high school and talk to myself what would I say? Not the kind of conversation that I'm used to having with strangers at the mall. Stranger still was that I actually blurted out a pretty good answer. I told him that I would tell myself not to do things to please other people, instead do things because they are the right thing to do. I think this is what has been circling around in my soul for a while.
Oh well, we don't get it back. I can only go forward from here. Some people believe that this is all there is. There is no life after death. I think if I believed this I'd give it up. I'd say well, now it's too late. I believe in eternity. So I can teach myself to knit and realize that I have forever to keep learning it. Someday I'm going to relearn how to play the piano and this time not get frustrated because I can't play like my grandmother. I'll just keep working on it for eternity. Someday I stand a chance to be pretty decent with it. I think that I'm going to work on a "letter to me" post. I don't know if I'll post it, but why not. I pretty much put everything out there anyway.
If you want to give me something special, go sing a sweet song to Birdie. She's been needing some encouragement lately.
If I don't get back, have a merry and blessed Christmas and new year.
