A Time For Us All To Pause

 
Whatever your religious or secular tradition at this time of year, the best wishes to you and your loved ones come from me and my family.

Beyond the hype, the money spent, the rushing about, and the inevitable letdown after the day or period passes, I hope you can feel a deep sense of love and connectedness to the greater community of human beings.

 
Whatever your present situation you are part of a larger family with many similar concerns. At this time of year I pray you find some sense of peace and contentment.



Blessings from Satisfying Retirement: Bob, Betty, and Bailey

    1. You did not have a good 2013, so here's praying your new year is very much different.

      Betty and I have all sorts of plans to shake things up a bit for 2014. It is time.

      Best wishes to you, Dave, Sydney and Buddy and for the move to Cape May.

  5. Merry Christmas to you and your family Bob.
    We stayed home- but got Skype from Afghanistan and Maryland. We are looking forward to being all together mid way through through 2014.

    1. Skype is an amazing tool for folks as widely scattered as your family. BTW, I hope it wasn't too cold in Kansas, but if you stayed warm and snug inside them what does it matter!

      Thanks for the nice wishes.

  6. Merry Christmas Bob. Tell Betty there is a long low rumble of a southern "Merry Christmas" coming from Atlanta.

    1. If you see my youngest brother wandering around the Atlanta area, say Hi to him. We have not been east to visit him for too many years.

      Merry Christmas and a happy, safe New Year's to you.
