Thought I would just post a couple of pictures taken from the very top of the property showing the valley with the fog rolling in and out but for some reason it will not allow me to. So I think I need to share something about myself. Hopefully, it will wake a few people up and help them share themselves with at least one other person but first I would like everyone to check out website called: “Operation Meaningful Life”. It could help with raising your child and it was developed by a very caring parent of an autistic child. So please check this site out.
Christmas time was never one of my favorite times of the year while growing up and it still isn’t. I grew up with very caring parents who worked hard to provide for their family. My father was a Washington DC police officer who, unlike what the news portrays police to be now, he was a well-respected officer to those in the community he served. I remember going down to his precient when I was around 8 yrs old and people and shop owners would ask me if officer Bean was my father. When I said yes, they told me what a great friend he was to everyone from children to the elderly. My father was blind to people’s color as well as social status and he taught me to accept people for what they were. To treat people with respect until they lost your respect and I have tried to live up to this. Every life matters. I have never let too many people get close to me and now that I am ancient, I wish I had. I lost my father a few years age to alzheimer’s and now it’s my mothers time. My daughter and I took a trip back up to DC to see her a few weeks ago because we wanted to see her again while she might still know us. It was well worth the trip.
Christmas time seems to make people think of others and wanting to help change their lives for the better. Each of us has the ability to change at least one person’s life in some way. There is a tv commercial showing now that I think is great and I hope everyone sees it over and over again. It shows a young girl with some help from others putting up a Christmas tree on a neighbor’s front yard and then on Christmas the kids find presents under that tree for them while the old man (neighbor) looks out the window smiling at the girl. It is one of the few commercials that are worth anything. Small things can have a very large impact on someones life.
I guess this old man should stop rambling on. The point I was trying to make is, please if you are able to show someone that you care about them please do. And don’t limit this just to this time of the year, let the child within you come out everyday and always see just the good in others. All life matters Look at life through your child-like eyes. Happy Holidays!!!!!!!
Oh! Will someone please send a comment to our web page. We were hacked by overseas websites and I think that I have stopped it. What I don’t know is, that after blocking a number of IP address, did I mistakenly block out people here in the States. We haven’t had any comments left on our website since the blocks.
Thanks again and hug your children every chance you get, whether they are one or eighty because that will be the memory that they will carry with them throughout their life.
