Making a mark on the earth

Some men make a mark of their time here on earth with clever words or beautiful art. Jed just scratches around lost most of the time.

Christmas left me feeling a bit like a failure as a husband, father, friend, son, grandson, brother, grandfather, employee, or any relationship I can ponder. I suspect it is the season, not Christmas, but winter that has me sour in the emotional stew.

You are a wonderful husband, father, friend, son, grandson, brother, grandfather and employee. You are a beautiful creature in the midst of difficult times. You are more appreciated than anyone I have ever met by those around you. I love you, Beloved.

P.S. Thank you again for one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received. The drum is magnificent!

You have never failed me my dear friend. I dare say with confidence, you never will. You are a daily breath of fresh air for me at the COK as well. Buddha said; Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others. You do that for many around you.

Thanks everyone! I feel defeated during the dark months. I am sorry to whimper so much, I just hurt. I know it is mostly in my mind. The reality of it is that things are fine, I am alive, warm, and fed. I suppose it comes from a feeling like everything I touch falls apart which may be true, but it ain't all my fault, some of the blame is only nature. I hope to find a place someday where I fit perfectly and get a chance to use all this character I have spend a lifetime building.

Jed, I am sorry you are feeling blue. I wish I could bundle up a basket of sunshine from down here and send it to you. I can't relate to the dark winter blues because we never have more that a couple of days of doom and gloom weather. Best wishes to a happy and healthy new year to you and your family.

Jed, I know those feelings so well. Luckily sometimes it takes only a small gesture or word to change those feelings. Looks like you have someone nearby who can say those words, too.
