I sang songs I love and of love I danced Jumped and swayed God was there It was good It was fun
I tasted yummy Eats And even some Extra yummy treats Savored fresh fruit Crunched crisp salad God's food is good
I thanked People in my life I donated Of myself and my fruits I let God in
I encouraged others In as many ways as possible I hugged and snuggled Shook hands and rubbed backs Gave tips and tricks God guided my Hands, arms, heart and words It was all good
I played Recreation of Body, mind, and spirit With kids Pets and Creative moments It was all good God was there
I planted Gardens Flowers and greens Beauty For eyes And bellies It was goodness In, out, and all around
I fed the birds Even the squirrels Watched them partake In God's abundance
I let good in So I know I let God in
My pen My brush My keyboard My paper My blogs My hands My heart My mind My body
They all tasted The goodness of god Every ounce of my being Has felt God's healing lightness Frivolity Joviality Exubérant Contentement In every cell, tissue, and organ
I let good in So I know I let God in

May you know that you let good in and that in doing so, you let God in. May you have an abundance of things you enjoy, which allow you to let God into your life in abundance. May you know and feel the goodness permeate your being. May the goodness remain as long as humanity possible, even when distracted from it.

My two toddlers decided to breakdance this evening. Their teenage sister put on the ‘polish dancing cow song’.
It is a pop-ish song in polish with male singers. I have no idea it’s actual title, the band name, or meaning, only that my two littles saw the video of the dancing cow and thought it was hilarious.
They will moo upon hearing the first few beats of music and within seconds begin to dance. It’s a combination of butt wiggles and moves on the floor that really do resemble breakdancing. I found it remarkably amusing, up until the 3rd repeat of the song and my kids ramping up from fatigue. At that point I played parent and put an end to music and spaz, sending them to begin their bedtime rituals.
I’m not sure my 2.5 yr old even made it to story time. Her big sister did diaper and clothes change and wrapped her into bed as she weakly protested.
I had already made cozy with kitties in front of the fire, and watched protests from a distance. My husband then took over for their storytime, meditation, and go to sleep music. Peace returned.
I spent the next hour sitting on the sofa with two of my four cats nestled either side of my lap. What had started as a roaring fire gradually died down and retreated to coals.
At that point I peeled myself away from kitties and began my bedtime rituals myself. My buddy cat decided that was a great time to move to the recliner and sprawl.
May you have cute and cuddly evenings with your kids &/or pets. May you have an enjoyable holiday season. May you find your home comforting and warm. May you know you are loved.
