Reach Out

There are a lot of single people that have no where to go for the holidays. They are left at home alone with their heart breaking but you would never know it because they put on a good front and a happy face but crying inside.

Now there are some singles who prefer to spend the day at home alone. Maybe they want to rest, catch up with some chores, read a book, cook their own dinner and top it off with a delicious glass of wine.

Although I’m okay with being alone on the holidays, if I’m invited somewhere I usually go. Some times I feel sad because my family lives so far away and it practically takes two days to drive there. Since I’m directionally challenged it might take longer and I end up who knows where. Flying during the holiday is a little challenging also.

My friends and I have planned an outing on the holiday that have been wonderfully enjoyable. We make reservations at a place that serves delicious meals. We dress up and pile in the car and laugh and giggle all the way. We also take selfies and get someone to snap a picture of all of us together. There are plenty of options.

Several more holidays in this year would be a great time to extend an invitation to share your holiday.  I will be extending invitations to share my holidays. If you do you will be glad you did and so will they.

Zoo – The Last Gathering A to Z Challenge

A memorable time for me and three of my grandchildren before I moved to another state was going to the zoo’s light show.

Every year the Zoo is decorated with millions of beautiful lights and hosts various festivities to celebrate the holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I decided to take my grandchildren for an enjoyable time. It was our first time at this event. In spite of the cold we had a wonderful time. No one complained. It was a surreal time. When I think about that day I can still feel the peace and calm that we experienced on our adventure.

We made our way through the zoo enjoying the light show and the animals. I also took pictures to remember the outing but they didn’t come out well because it was night. In spite of the pictures not turning out I have a picture in my heart that will last a lifetime.

Do you have any memorable times hidden in your heart?
