Thoughts While Shaving for December 24

Spread the love

Late night NFL football results … Green Bay Packers 23 – Minnesota Vikings 10.

One week remaining in regular season play … those who have had success will move on to playoffs … others pack up the uniforms and equipment … take some time off and begin planning for next year … ex. Carolina Panthers.

If you have waited to the absolute last minute to do your Christmas shopping … ’bout time you head to town. … Just a few hours remaining. … I am not a last minute shopper, not much of any kind, but do not like waiting ’til the last minute.

Worked for a boss years ago who admitted he waited until about dark-30 p.m. on Christmas eve. … He would brag about the bargains he purchased at the last minute …Not for me.

We are big on sending Christmas cards … have kept a record of those sent over the past many year … had them in a folder. I misplaced the folder … Searched high and low, no folder … so began from scratch … a disaster. If you usually receive a Christmas card from this set of Hesters’ but have not received one this year … I am most likely the guilty one. … Sorry, maybe next year.

Saw a post on Facebook from a younger male who I knew as a youngster. … He went off to school and never came back to live. He resides in the mountains of NC, and he and I are friends on Facebook. This A.M. he said he de-friended someone that he disagreed with on politics, then decided he was wrong … and I agree. Disagree all you want to, but listen to others and try to understand where they are coming from. We must listen to each other … disagreeing is OK, if you don’t take it personal. I know of no one I agree with all the time, on anything. Bet my bride would attest to that statement.

My two sons and grandson have picked winners and losers in NFL games for 10 year or more, I guess. It is competitive, winner has bragging rights, no money passed. … This year, as of the 16th week, with one week remaining, three are tied with identical record of 149-88 and the other is 150-87. Competition will be fierce this weekend. … Will be some trash-talking at the Christmas gathering tomorrow.

Not to late to do a good deed to someone who is in need.

“It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.” Benjamin Franklin

Good deeds should be done with intention, not attention.

Keep putting out good. It will come back to you tenfold in unexpected ways.
