The Winter Solstice has come and gone and Christmas is upon us. All the festivities and beautiful decorations, it makes everything look so lively. Unless things change drastically we will not be having a white Christmas, but that is ok with me. Momma Said, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and things are going just fine.”
I do believe I fell behind on my deer hunting story. I did get to go as you know and I finally did get an eight-point buck, meat in the freezer again, hurray. I had a great time but it is not as easy as it used to be. Cold affecting the ole bones and making me stiff and hard to walk, but I made it. I am not as good as I once was but I am as good once as I ever was.
You just have to learn to pace yourself, which I am not very good at, and anything is possible. You just have to get up and do it, make yourself a goal each day to do just a little bit more than the day before. This method is not going to do you very good if you are a procrastinator so just make your goal and stick to it.
Our prayers go out to all the people affected by the hurricanes and hope that everyone is as safe as possible. It is hard to go through an event like that but this close to Christmas must be even more devastating. My wish is for everyone to be safe and try to make the best of a bad situation. Momma Said, “Be Safe, be happy and have the best Christmas Season you can.”
