Slamming Doors? Closing Gently?

Hi there Diamond Glamour Girls!

As 2016 leaves and 2017 enters, we are blessed to think how important it is to let go of the things we can not change and accept the things,

Burns' original Scots verse

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll
tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!
and surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak' a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.

Now that you have read the lyrics, sit down and make a list of all the things you are willing to let go of. Make another list of all the things you want to keep. While your there, STOP and think to yourself, are  you slammig a door on that past, or just closing it gently to revisit another day?

God Bless! Happy New Years!

White Christmas 2016

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls;

White Christmas!




One of the classic christmas songs, the best song ever written. I have always loved this song and thought it to be one of the best songs ever written. It brings to mind, all that is good about the holiday season and that even when you are not the religion of the time the true meaning of Christmas is what it is really about. If you have an understanding of that in life, you win. What is the true meaning of Christmas? Presents? Money? Possessions? Food in abundance?  Family? Food? Poverty? Changes?
Life? Diamond? Gold? Houses? Cars? Money? What is the true meaning of Christmas for you.

I learned very young in life, what it meant to me, Maria Kamon. I wish you this year 2016, that you learn what it really means to you?

Dreaming White Christmas!

Irving Berlin wrote the lyrics to "White Christmas" in 1940. Bing Crosby, who starred in the 1942 movie "Holiday Inn" with Fred Astaire, sang the song for the movie, on the radio and recorded it for Decca on May 29, 1942. 

Being Jewish, Berlin could draw only on what he remembered of Christmas celebrations in his neighborhood during his childhood. When he auditioned the song in 1941, he expressed concern that it lacked something. However, Bing Crosby assured him that the song would be a hit. "White Christmas" remains Bing Crosby's top-selling recording and the top-selling Christmas single of all time as of May 2015.


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

The Munday of Life.

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls;

It's the Christmas Holidays and we are in all the planning of life. Sometimes in the midst of planning I take time out to do others. Things that will help me think better.

                   


Here are a few tips. Things things you can do when your in the middle of getting ready for the Christmas season rush.

1. Take the time to put things away. I understand that your busy and the holiday season comes and goes quickly. Take the time to file the receipts away.

2. Do this while your waiting for the cookies to be made or your watching TV. As woman we always get called out for being multi-taskers.

3. Find a small place in your house to put all the unwanted things for the season. One of the places I found useful to put away all the everyday items was in the coat closet. Nice neat boxes. When guest arrive you still have a place for their coats and it's not likely they will be going through the closet looking for things.

4. Bathrooms taking out the old and putting in the Christmas decor.  It's the perfect time to clean up all the items your children don't use or your husband no longer uses. The under the sink area is a nice little temporary storage place for items you are not using for the season. Let's face it we all have guest that like going through bathroom cabinets and drawers just to find out what you and your family uses. Crazy Aunt Sue.

5. Crazy time to think about it. However, it is honestly one of my favorite times to work on my taxes. Once everything is is place the evenings are quite, the kids are busy I enjoy to start planning for the next year.

There are my 2016 recommendations for 2017.

Clean, File, Prepare, Plan

Happy 2017!


Hope in 2020!
