How's your Merryneum goin'? You know, the awkward week between Christmas and New Year's Eve, that has us all either anxious or in coma.
Listen in and hear a great idea that can pull the nose up on that dive the week may be taking.
Come close, grab some hot cider, and warm by the fire, while we listen in on this Christmas story time, with Terey as our reader.
Merry Christmas, dear friends.
We all probably get this song stuck in our heads during the Christmas season, "It's the most wonderful time the year!" With kids jingle belling and everyone telling to "be of good cheer", the halls may be the least of things that get decked. The truth may just be, we are feeling anything but cheerful. This season is a season of peace and joy and hope, but there is so much that comes with this season that contributes to the greater divide within, that this most wonderful time of year can truly be blue for so many. I'll have a blue Christmas may be more like it.
I sat down with someone who understands that reality, and honors the space and place for those that need it held by someone. You don't have to feel you're alone in this one. It's real and true. True blue.
I did a double take of a friends face book post. It presented his truth, that forgiving himself might be the hardest thing he had ever tried to do.
Uhhhhhhh. I was frozen for a few seconds. I guess I may have trouble forgiving myself too.
How about you? Join us in this conversation, full of F words.
Forgiveness. Now, that's an F word for ya.
Serving up some deep thankfulness, straight from the heart.
The Day after tomorrow we will celebrate Thanksgiving 2021. In great part that was the prompt for this series we are in, titled, A Series Of Thankfulness; Family & Friends, Creative & Courageous. In a nutshell, some of the big things I have been lending my braincells to think on are my friendships, my family, the creative, and the courageous. There is one person prominent in my mind and on my heart that embodies all four of these. It's my niece Camryn. A beauty through and through, if there ever was a time to give her a platform, its this month, this year, and this Tuesday with Terey. Or Bobo as she would say.
She is a special one, oh so very very special to me. My friend, My family, creative and courageous. Thats Camryn. My Camy-Apple.
Ep73: May You Die With Your Boots On, A Series Of Thankfulness; Family & Friends, Creative & Courageous
"Perhaps I may yet die with my boots on." Wild Bill Hickock said that. I didn't know him personally, but my guess is that he meant something kinda like, if he were blessed enough in life he would leave this earthly place someday, doing what he loved to do, living the way he loved to live. It just might be a charge for us all. Grab those boots, y'all.
My guests on this episode are brothers and I do know them. I knew them in HIghschool, and only well enough to know that they were good guys. And good guys they were and good men they are. Thanks to social media, we have connected again, and I have been welcomed by their warmth into their fold.
These two brothers, along with a band of others, can say they are living with their "boots on". Join us for a wild adventurous look at living wilding authentic, and loving the wild at heart that exists within longing to be set free.
