Holiday Greeting from Someone Who Writes too Much


If you know me you get way too many Facebook notifications and emails. I write too much and really can’t really stop. I guess I’m on a mission to get the word out there. The word is– live for each second, and don’t miss a thing, because if you blink, just once– it could all go away in a minute’s notice.

Be thankful for one more day that is added to your life. Enjoy the morning light, and the moonlight, life isn’t meaningless. Even though my opinions may be opposite to yours, I try to understand. Though our ways may differ, they come from the same place, our hearts. Sometimes in life you might have to start over. Keep fighting- as it’s all about surviving. We just can’t worry life away now–time is fleeting. No matter what you celebrate–enjoy the day, and hug your family. Each minute is worth it!

All have succumbed to cancer, except me. So I write to keep memories alive. At this point in my life it seems to be everyones:)

To quote  Max Keeping on Angelo’s Obituary: “Cancer is Such a Bully”!  May we send our love in droves to Max as well as our families.

  1. Linda, we all go along each day taking our good luck for granted until something happens to us or to someone we care about. But it’s the days and time that are important – not the event. We just have to be continually aware to value what we have…now.


  2. I disagree about Cancer being a bully. Bullies know what they are doing. Bullies get satisfaction from their evil deeds. Cancer is a random disease. It’s a bad one. All we can do is enjoy the good health we have when we have it, and try to help each other when necessary.


    • Lois each one of my family has died before the age of 55. Mother 34 sister 40 uncle 19 and the list goes on.. I am the only one left.. Sometimes I think cancer gets satisfaction from killing off my family:(


  3. You could never write too much. I love to read your wonderful words, they are filled with magic from a beautiful soul and a radiant mirror of love.


  4. ‘The Tilted Kilt’…I must read it. I’m missing your writing and look forward to some entertaining text…no matter how serious the subject matter! Or not. Love you.
