Brian’s Christmas Blessings

December 24th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Poetry, Weird Things About Me




May your lights be bright and your resilience strong,
May your thoughts be poetry and your voice be song.
May your dreams be vivid and your days be bold,
May your riches be measured in human gold.



Happy Shopping Daze — 
the best gift you can give is the gift of time,
and love and attention and conversation and fun and activities and help and kindness.
Stuff is cool — but you’re cooler!
Share your presence and presents will open where there were no presents before.



“Life should Not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid across the finish line sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, ‘WOO HOO, What a Ride!!’”
(author unknown)
