Tips For Living Life (December)

There are few advantages to "putting things off until next year" for next year is almost here already!

The days dwindle down.

Just a precious few are left.

Decembrrrr is here.

A living tree is a thing of beauty, and green all winter.

Lots to remember, and lots to do!

December is here, at the end of the year. It's the procrastinators' month when, as with all procrastinators, the needed things get done just in the St. Nick of time!

D Don't forget all who hope to hear from you this month.

E Embrace close family, friends, and those who just need a good hug.

C Cheer up the sad, and make someone feel glad.

E Earn the respect of others by being all that you are meant to be.

M Mean what you say, and say just what you mean.

B Be the cheerful child of a loving Heavenly Father who gives gifts all year.

E Escape the mundane and be truly alive in this once a year special season.

R Remember what it is you are celebrating, and that it isn't just you.


Merry Christmas! and Happy Holidays! There is time for both, but time is fleeting, especially if we are to accomplish all that D-E-C-E-M-B-E-R can stand for.

Denis Handlon - Actually, I believe it could be called an acrostic poem, had I used each bold letter to start the sentence that followed. In any case I aj glad you found it useful. Merry Christmas to you, and yours too.

This was a real blessing to me. My grandfather has spent the past two months in the hospital. It was supposed to be a rather uncomplicated abdominal surgery, even though he is a man in his 80s with heart/lung issues and nearly blind. Due to chronic low oxygen levels over three weeks, he now has severe dementia and is in that sad place between living and dying. We must always take time we don't think we have. Because tomorrow we may not have it at all.

Dear F.A. - As we all learned this past week, the chances to share our love with others is another "one day at a time" aspect of our lives. There may be tomorrows, but there are todays. We use them so as to have no regrets for not having used them. You are a winner, and I am glad I told you so. D.

You are so right, Demas. Sometimes we forget what the season really means. I need to put some food our for my dear birds, who bring joy to me all year. Now it is my time to help them a little.

aviannovice - Yesterday and today: I fed 4 California Jays, 20 quail, 1 mourning dove, and 40 sparrows, plus my cat Mau-Mau who gets along with all of them peacefully. I saw a photo of a Bohemian Waxwing, certainly one of the loveliest birds, and I wondered whether or not you might have ever seen and photographed one. We have two weeks left until we call this season "Winter 2015" but it has certainly felt like winter for several weeks here in the Rocky Mountains. I left an abundance of unpicked apples on the trees this year, anticipating a hard winter for the birds, and I am halfway through the first 20 lb. bag of wild bird seed from ACE Hardware which seems, so far at least, to have the best priced supply. Merry Christmas!

I have never met a Bohemian Waxwing, but since this is an El Nino year, and waxwings can be irruptive, it is possible that this could be the year for them here.
