I think the weather is confused. It is supposed to be Summer, you know, sun and hot, wearing dresses shorts and skirts. Instead all we've had is more rain and cold, wearing trackies and hoodies and ugg boots. What's with that?
I'm changing. I'm starting to learn to appreciate what I do have, rather than pondering on what I don't. Especially at this time of year. I absolutely hate how it's become about the material things. To me, Christmas will always be about giving. About helping those that are less fortunate and doing my bit to bring 'peace and goodwill' to all. I wish I could be doing more, but I just don't have time. Next year, I'm definitely planning on throwing myself much more into the community, and assisting where it is needed. But I'm very appreciative of the fact that I'm in a position that allows me to help others this Christmas.
So many people of my age are in the same position, to be able to go and volunteer as I do at a welfare centre for just a few hours a week. But they don't. Some people see poverty and injustice, even on a small scale happening all around them and yet do nothing about it. And it makes me sad.
I'm in a very Simon and Garfunkel mood. I like it.
Those photos are coming soon, my computer is being extremely difficult tonight.
On repeat- April Come She Will- Simon and Garfunkel.
