Come Sit By Me A While:That Fresh Start.H.O.W.

Source
Source

Today is sunny but nevertheless a very cold morning therefore let us go indoors and sit by our Christmas Tree.

Take a seat,let me take your coats and I shall make you tea or coffee. Which one would you like??

Okay I won't be two minutes.

Now then today again I am going to preach my sermon of 'THAT FRESH START.'

Take a look through the windows at the birds on our bird table. Watch them and do you notice how they fight for the food;they are fighting for what is truly theirs!!!What should so rightly be theirs.

I don't see a single one sat on the fence with no fight at all in him!!Oh No!!

Again there is a very important lesson to learn from Mother Nature's kingdom.

We all deserve the very best from life ; if we treat others with respect then surely we deserve the same respect ourselves.

Someone who sits on the fence watching others walk all over them and doing nothing to protect themselves;is someone who has little or no self respect!!

One day your heart and soul will tell you that now is the time to stand up and fight ;whenever that time comes you will know this is the time to stand up and be counted.

Around twelve years ago a friend of mine from childhood was persuading me to leave my abusive husband .

"Don't you think you deserve better ?"she asked me.

"The right will come and soon!" was my reply.

"But you are always going to upset someone" she replied."There will never be a 'right time' when all will stay perfect."

I can them remember saying to her. "I don't mean that!" "I mean the time will come when I will be ready to leave and then be strong enough to stay away!"

Not long after this conversation the time did come and I did find that strength to stay away.

You may be able to relate to this in a situation of your own !! It doesn't have to mean you need to leave your partners;it can be anything in your life you are not happy with !!!

I have walked the road and can tell you all that it was 100% worth it.

Right I will now recite some poetry to you along with one of my favourite songs.

Sit back and relax but falling asleep is not allowed!!Ha ha!

The morning sunshine

promises from a brightly lit sky

golden days

happy ways

sun-kissed dew drops........................

Close your eyes

Open your heart

Find that dream

Yours from the start.


x


The birds that fly high

carry our Christmas wishes

to a winter wonderland.................


x


Close your eyes

Open your heart

Find that dream

Yours from the start.


x


Each child's innocent laughter

will light each path

each road

each journey step by step................


x


Close your eyes

Open your heart

Find that dream

Yours from the start.


x


Each crisp fresh snowflake

will pave our our hearts

with that wondrous

so pure

new beginning..............

Close your eyes

Open your heart

Find that dream

Yours from the start.

Each evening sunset

warmly mingling

with a

Christmas scene

which will fill each heart to shine ...........................

Close your eyes

Open your heart

Find that dream

Yours from the start.

Arcostic:Find That Fresh Start.

Fear not your path so well lit

I take your hand

Never say never

Dreams may hide but never forever

x

Tenderness full of strength

Hate and pain discarded

All days bring you closer

Treasures which gleam and await.

x

From your being a strength will blossom

Radiating fresh and beautiful days

Eternally your haven will bloom

Singing your tender love songs

Happiness and strength go hand in hand

x

Share your heart ;share your days

Trouble and strife have no place

A wondrous world awaits us all

Rich in humility

Take the road which your heart chooses.

Christmas

I do so love

Excitement stirs my heart

Christmas tree tinsel and glitter

Bright wrapping paper for all those presents

The fairy on the Christmas tree

Sprinkles her magic wand

Wishes come true

Christmas.


Source

Turkey and stuffing

Carols and Christmas movies

My heart rejoices.

Source

Each happy smile.

Each star so high.

Each magical moment

On that magical sigh.


x


With hearts so happy

We all sing along

With spirits rejoicing

Singing our Christmas song.


x


Gathering together

Let the world rejoice

With hearts so full

Each angelic voice.


x


Share your heart

Share that love

A Christmas wish

From heaven above.

Well the time has come to say farewell again; but only until tomorrow.

I hope you enjoyed your visit ; put your coats on and keep warm.

Lots of love to you all.

Eddy.

Crikey Eiddwen, you outdid yourself here!

What a stunning piece of work, so much, and no chance of falling asleep for me, I was spellbound!

I can certainly relate to the 'Right Time' aspect, it's so true. It's what's right for you at the time, so you escape with your life, respect and dignity intact.

Voted everything!

Wondrous creation, Eiddwen, what a spirit you have! And that video is just magical. Never heard of that band before, now I won't forget it. I just loved that video, very Dickensian, you could almost hear Tiny Tim say, 'God bless us, everyone!'

Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your family, Eiddwen.

You are the queen, my life-learned friend - the queen of intelligence and dignity! You have...balance - which deeply appeals to the libra in me..

be good to others...be fair and honest - but - don't take the crap either! While no one can force us to do what we're not prepared to do - conversely - no one can stop us from doing what we must when the time has come! Bravo to you for doing what you must, and being brave enough to say yes! And no!

I learn more each time i visit and 'sit by you'...

Oh Leslie what a wonderful friend you are;i admire your spirit,a spirit so full of humour and a true inspiration.I am also a Libran and you are so right we must never take the crap either. I did for many a year but the 'me' of today certainly won't. Here's to a wonderful weekend my friend.
