Here I sit - quiet - comfortable - totally thankful for what I have. I have more than some and not as much as others.
I do have peace of mind and contentment.
At 11:00 am (been up and around since 6:30), the garage doors are wide open - heat shut off - radio playing Christmas music. It is 65 degrees and I am in a tee shirt.
The sun is shining - the air is still.
It is very quiet outside, almost no traffic. I can barely hear kids playing in the distance through the dense trees.
Diane is at work, and I will make our Christmas dinner, bacon cheeseburgers. yum.
By design, we will not exchange gifts.
Tomorrow we will be off doing something festive.
Today I am playing in the shop and doing some fine tuning on my new CNC machine.
I am content.
I fear not all are so content this day.
My prayer is that people can find the gift of peace of mind and contentment.
To all Merry Christmas this fine day.
