Today is going to be a busy day. I write web content for a website that is getting ready to launch and I have to choose ten articles to write for the month of December. They will be due on November 30th. To top it all off, I'm already late getting that information to the editor. I send my suggestions to him and he approves them. Once in a while he already has something that I've suggested and then he makes a couple of suggestions. He's a very easy-going editor, for which I am glad.
Next, I have to clean this house up a bit. Last week I didn't get much done, so I'm paying this week. There's also a few things I need to get rid of and this is a perfect time of year to do so. Christmas Baskets are always happy to receive items to give to those less fortunate during the holiday season.
I will try to make a regular post later in the day. I'm brainstorming to try to think of something of interest. In the meantime, here is a little something.
Do you remember any of the Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes that you learned as a child? When we had my niece's baby shower, we played a nursery rhyme game and not one person got them all right. I remember a lot of them and said them to the grandsons when they were little. I wouldn't want to see Mother Goose lost to the children of our age. Here's one that Grandma used to say to me:
Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace
Wednesday's child is full of woe
Thursday's child has far to go
Friday's child is loving and giving
Saturday's child works hard for it's living
But the child born on the Sabbath Day
Is fair and wise and good and gay.
What day were you born on? I am a Wednesday's child and though I wouldn't say I am full of woe, I've battled depression for years. It's not a deep, dark depression like some people experience, but an on-going light depression. I have never let it get me down and try my best to be an optimist. I learned long ago that fighting this battle is neverending. However, keeping busy and having great friends to support me along with my family keeps me at the top most of the time.
