Looking back over 2010

A couple of days ago on a cold, chilly, windy  December evening,  I begin to reflect on my life and the people that have crossed my path.  I had just gotten back from a funeral of a friend that had suddenly passed away in his sleep and my thoughts were of course on him and his family and what he has meant to me.  The church was almost filled and as I sat on that pew I thought what a great outpouring of love was being shown for this man.  The minister spoke so loving of this church member and it was so refreshing to know that this man of God knew that man well.  I also started thinking of my own mortality. I wondered how much more time do I have and how do I need to spend it. 

I would only hope that people would say the kind loving things that were said about this dear man but somehow I can't imagine such glowing words being said over me. It doesn't seem like I could possiblity measure up to him.  I  just don't know if I will leave that kind of mark. 

There are so many things that seems  to steal  my time and energy and much of this seems so frivolous.  I really need to concentrate more on  giving unselfishly to those around me of my  time and resources. 

So as I write this, at least I have thought of one specific person that I could at least show a token of my love for on this day.  So I have acted on this.  

Christmas Eve is tomorrow and and thinking of that now my mood starts to turn melancholy. All of  those wonderful Chrismtas's that have already been with my own little family now as well as the one I grew up in are starting to revisit me now.   

I wish there was some way that I could personally tell all of the people that have made positive impacts on my life over the years that are still alive that I love them and thank them for being who they are and wish them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I know that is not possible so I am writing those feelings in this article. Somewhere in side of me maybe I think that perhaps some of these people might  just be able to feel the impact of my words here through some sort of magical means or maybe God will intervene and help with this. Also, maybe a few of some of them might just read this and even if only one does, well that is good.

My goals from this day forward  are that through the help of God that I might be a better human being and show more love to everyone that I come in contact with and try and use my time wiser than I have in the past and also that I might be a happier person than I've been in 2010.

For anyone on Authorsden who reads this, I have this to say to you. Merry Christmas to you and yours. And for those few of you that have become sort of friends with me on this page, I say God Bless you and I hope this is the Merriest Christmas that you've ever had. God Bless You All.

That is a worthy goal to set, Aubrey. I know that I especially need to learn to use my time more wisely in 2011. Hey, by doing that, I will be able to show more love! 2 birds down with 1 stone. :)

Merry Christmas, Aubrey. God bless you, as well!
