Santa and Grandpa

It's Christmas time, and attention goes,to the funny guy with his ho, ho, ho's.Yes, we all know the reindeer story,And hear the tales of Santa's glory.But this will pass, and soon over town,the decorations will be coming down.They'll be put away until next year,when it's time again for Christmas Cheer.So I am sticking with another old guy,And I'm writing this to tell you why.Old Santa's great one day, it's true,But Grandpa's here the whole year through.He sits by me when I'm feeling bad,He's the best old friend I've ever had.He will tell me a story, yes, and then,He can quickly make me smile again.We fish and Grandpa baits my hook,If I ask him he will read my book.He holds my hand when we take a walkAnd he really listens when I talk.So I truly love this dear old man,Who sees me every time he can.He goes with me and he cheers, too,When Old Santa Claus is passing through.

Pookie, the Purple Catapillar
This is the story of Pookie, the purple catapillar. It's not a fancy story; or a story that will bring you any sort of inner peace; but instead, a story that may help you see the forest through the trees.
This story begins one early fall day, when all the leaves on the trees were changing colors and drifting so beautifully to the floor of the forest. All the other bugs and creatures used to compliment Pookie daily on the graceful way in which she moved about and how she shared her dreams and aspirations with all of them of her floating through the air someday with the greatest of ease. Many of her friends believed her, however, there were some who scoffed and laughed at her. But she didn't mind. She just simply believed in herself and her dream.
That evening, she told everyone that she was going to climb this tree of all trees that was commonly but reverantly known as 'The Big Mamma'. This was no ordinary tree. It had been there for 1000's of years and was the tallest, the biggest, the widest, the leafiest, the branchiest tree you've ever seen! Pookie said she was going to climb it, take a nap when she got to the top, and then fly down to all who would be there for her. They threw a little going away party for her and off she climbed until she was out of site. They decided to go to their homes and wait until spring because the weather was starting to change. Some thought they would never see her again.
By the time she got to the top of The Big Mamma, the weather was really windy and getting very cold so she started to build her a caccoon on a branch to keep warm. Pookie fell asleep and when she awoke, it was a warm, sunny day. She stretched out and noticed that there was something different about herself. She had awoke with the most beautiful wings with hundreds and hundreds of different colors in them. She thought to herself, all my dreams have come true and outstretched her arms and leaped off the branch. She fluttered and floated and flew around the tree for what seemed an eternity. And when she reached the floor of the forest, there they all were clapping with tears in their eye's.
"We knew you could do it! We knew you could do it Pookie!", they shouted and screamed. Then off she flew, never to be seen again. She was a legend. So much so, they spoke of her often. They even wrote a song about her. You want to hear it? Here it goes!
(Sung to: Rock a Bye Baby)
Good little Pookie, in the tree top,Climbed up Big Momma only to stop,When she awoke, she spread out her wings,And floated away to dream other dreams.
Your dreams can come true. But only if you believe in yourself and never give up on those dreams.
God Bless.
This would be a nice little story to read to your kids, or grandkids as a bedtime story. Pookie is a friend of mine.
The End

Some Ways To Make And Keep A Happy Family

Mom and dad — they’re two of the most important people in your life. You probably see at least one of them every day and, over your lifetime, they’re likely to influence you more than anyone else you will meet. So if your dad worships, say, the Pittsburgh Steelers, you’re likely to grow up being a big fan of that football team. And if your mom loves to read, you just might grow up carrying a book wherever you go, just like she does.
But parents do a lot more than just pass along their hobbies. Moms and dads need to care for their kids from the minute they’re born. It’s a parent’s job to love and guide kids — and most parents will do this as long as they live — even when the "kids" are grown up and have children of their own. That means you have many years ahead to share with your mom and dad.
Here are five ways you can stay close, get along, and build a strong relationship:
Spend time together. It might be easy to be physically in the same place as your mom or dad (like at home — it’s where you both live, after all.) But how much time do you spend just enjoying each other’s company? Instead of playing a computer game or watching TV, maybe ask your mom and dad to play with you. Go outside together, try a board game, or read a book out loud. If your parents are divorced, make the most of the time you do spend together. In between, talk on the phone and email each other to stay in touch.
Share your feelings and ask for help. Many kids say they’d like their parents to help them when they’re upset. But your mom or dad might not know that you’re having a problem. Tell a parent if you’re sad or struggling with something. If you don’t usually do this, it can feel funny at first. Try it and you’ll be glad you did.
Be kind. Little things might mean a lot to your mom or dad. You can brighten a parent’s day with a hug, a card, or a joke. It’s also lovely when a kid offers to help fold the laundry or cleans up his or her room without being asked. And if you try not to fight with your brothers or sisters, your parents might be so thrilled they’ll do a silly dance around the kitchen!
Show you care. Some families are always kissing, hugging, and saying “I love you.” Other families aren’t as lovey-dovey. But it’s important to show that you care for each other. In addition to kisses and hugs, kids and parents show their love by respecting each other, being caring, polite, and thoughtful.
Do your best at whatever you do. You don’t have to be perfect, but when you do your best, you make your parents proud. It makes them happy to see how you’re turning into such a great kid. Why? Because it lets them know they’re doing a good job.
