CHRISTMAS IS A PLACE IN THE HEART...


CHRISTMAS IS A PLACE IN THE HEART...
©Kimberly D. Miller - December 15, 2018


With Christmas right around the corner, I have been reflecting on Christmases past and the happy times we had as children. I remember being so spoiled by all of the “stuff” we found under the tree. Our parents went all out every year to make sure we had everything we asked for, and then some. We never wanted for anything...except the occasional hug. I cannot fault my parents for the way they were brought up and, as human beings go, they did the best they could as parents, but the true meaning of Christmas was something we never understood back then. In fact, it wasn't until I was a mother myself that I ever really knew that Christmas was not about what we got under the tree, but what we gave of each other, especially during that time, in honor of the birth of Christ. I tried so hard every year to instill this belief in my son and I have to pat myself on the back as he is the first one to say, “let's not do presents, let just have a meal and enjoy each others' company.” I am a bit of a proud mother (insert large grin here).



Christmas is a place in the heart...it's the love you have, not only for your family, but also for the people in your life you cherish and those who could use a helping hand. This year, why not honor them with your time...as that is the most precious gift you have to offer.

YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE "FAIR"

Today, while having lunch with a very, very dear friend, and discussing the varietal aspects of life, we touched on the subjects of fairness and reality. We were in total agreement that there is no such thing as “fairness” in life...or the people in it treating you fairly...other than your own expectations. I could easily say that things in my own life aren't “fair” because I can't be with the woman I fell in love with and very much want to spend the rest of my life with. Do I wish that I could? Do I wish that things could be different? Do I wish that she would fight for us to be together and fall in love with me again? Absolutely because I have never been able to get her out of my heart and therefore my mind, but am I willing to stop living and give up on my dreams and my integrity because life isn't “fair?” Absolutely not. There are things you cannot change and there are things you can. Your focus and your energy should be used wisely to change the thi

HAUNTINGS IN COOS COUNTY, OREGON...

I love "ghost" tracking and one of the things I liked best about going to Bisbee, Arizona, was the ghostly legends and original architecture.  Well, I am happy to report that I have found that here in my new digs as well, in Coos County, Oregon.  The following article was submitted on another website by a local reporter...I can't wait to check these places out: Spooky Legends and Haunted Locations By Mike Chavez As I have come to find out, Coos County has a few legends that provide some chilling scenarios for the curious. Here are a few more presumed haunted locations in Coos County. Explore if you dare. McAuley Hospital, Coos Bay Built in 1925, this was originally the Wesley Methodist Hospital. Years later, it was acquired by the Sisters of Mercy and renamed The McAuley Hospital. In 1982, it was remodeled to begin a new life as the Ken Keyes College. Since then, it has changed hands several times and has been vacant at times. People who have visited this

SOULEMETRY...

Soulemetry...an odd, yet accurately, amazing word.  What is Soulemetry?  Urban Dictionary.com describes it as follows: "Soulemetry is when fate brings two completely diverse people together (straight or gay) and they throw out all they know about love and they fall in love with each other ."  I first encountered this concept in my favorite, straight-woman-turns-lesbian movie entitled, "Elena Undone."  I was also fortunate enough to meet and have a brief love affair with my split-apart for a time... a beautiful and amazingly blessed time.  This movie was my life...with her.  I love her to this day and I wish we could be with one another, but alas it must not have been meant to be...but I digress. How amazing would it be to stumble upon the one person in this life or any other, who completes you...right here and right now? Who understands and accepts every aspect of who you are?Indescribable.  Soulemetry is the realization that the person you WANT to be with is
