A Bit of ...

My tree goes way back.
To the clans and the tribes of old.
Tales have been told.
Redone over the years.
All I know is that I am
a bit of Irish and Scot
with English thrown in.
Will I ever get to those lands,
I don't think so.
So, instead I will cheer
to the old and the new.
Wishing all a good year.
A good life.
And, many more to come.

That is my background too, JC, and I wonder if I'll ever get over to those lands for a visit. Flying has turned into such an unpleasant experience--it's too bad I couldn't just get over to Ireland by train, lol!

I want to go, too. Maybe someday!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
