Boxing Day--Rev Gals

What Five Things did today bring for me?


1. A day long mental hum of Good King Wenceslaus!

2. A poem for an exhausted friend (see below if interested)

3. A walk on the streets of Manhattan where I encountered a mother trying to apply Chapstick to her kid's lips and who finally had to say, "Look, you can sing, but you can't move your lips, honey."

4. A modestly better mood than the one I've been in the last couple of weeks

5. Bonus points of personal satisfaction for doing a good job translating the poem before checking online and human resources.

Not too bad.

Yes, it was pretty funny. Got to love those little overheard wisps of life! Hope your Christmas went well--thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Singing...or humming...is good.

Thank you, Purple, for taking time to comment. I agree that there is something good in song--something that gets conveyed that way that can be communicated in no other fashion.

Hope your Christmas was a good one--filled with grace and peace. (I like the Silent Night vid you posted, by the way. Thanks for that!)
