Time to Reflect

Well folks, it's that time of year when I reflect on all that's transpired in the past year. Lost some friends to the ravages of life, gained some new ones, had ill health and good health. Not rich, not needy. Family is doing well and so am I. Guess this year will go in the 'great' column of the old score book. I only have two columns that I use, 'really great' and 'pretty great' as I think any year I'm allowed to enjoy life and our beautiful 'Big Blue Marble' of a world has to be at least 'pretty great'. Thought I'd share a couple of my 'reflecting on the past year' favorite songs. Anyone of any religion or even no religion at all can relate to the sentiments and scenery as this is a truly wondrous planet we're allowed to 'borrow' for awhile. As a wise man once said, "I don't question whether or not there's a Creator, as somehow it's happened and it's all here; my question isn't who created it, but why was it created. Mankind often seems very unworthy of being the tenant of such a beautiful creation." That said, my best to any who pass by here, and may your past, present, and future years be as great as those I've enjoyed. Until next time, take care and be well.

Mike - I've not run across someone who seems to appreciate all the good and not-so-easy parts of life and all that surrounds them. Whatever caused it all to happen, I agree, I'm just glad it did.

Stay warm!

What a wonderful world indeed. I get goose bumps when I hear that song.

How great thou art was one I recall growing up Baptist (no longer am). It was one of my moms favorite hymns.

Very, very happy I stopped by.
