I have been anticipating today for months…
My little family was supposed to be reunited tonight for the first time in over a year - my daughter was to come home for Christmas!
If you enjoy my Letter I would be delighted if you share it with the people you believe may like it as well!
📚My Poem of the Day
“What Counts” by Edgar Guest (1881-1959), reminds us of what is really important in life, what values and traits make life worth living and that the power of love and life lies within each and every one of us.
It isn't the money you're making,
it isn't the clothes you wear,
And it isn't the skill of your good right hand which makes folks really care.
It's the smile on your face and
the light of your eye and the burdens that you bear.
Most any old man can tell you, most any old man at all,
Who has lived through all sorts of weather, winter and summer and fall,
That riches and fame are shadows that dance on the garden wall.
It's how do you live and neighbor, how do you work and play,
It's how do you say 'good morning' to the people along the way,
And it's how do you face your troubles whenever your skies are gray.
It's you, from the dawn to nighttime; you when the day is fair,
You when the storm is raging - how do you face despair?
It is you that the world discovers, whatever the clothes you wear.
You to the end of the journey,
kindly and brave and true,
The best and the worst of you gleaming in all that you say and do,
And the ting that counts isn't money,
or glory, or power, but YOU!
🎶My Song of the Day
I was asked to not go too cheesy with my music choices… (and a little warning that the next few day will be Christmassy 🎄🤶🏼🎅🏽🎁🛷❄️☃️🕯)
So here an amazing song by Billy Joel I love very much - “And So It Goes”…
If you love music as much as I do, you may appreciate that the songs of every Change & Evolve Letter can be found in the growing Spotify playlist. Just click and follow:

💭Thought of the Day
What can I say, I was overjoyed and looking forward to hold my little girl (she will forgive me and knows she will always be my baby) again after very long 14 months. And as of yesterday, the Uk was declared a risk area with a particularly high risk of infection (virus variant area) and she would have had to quarantine for 14 days - but she could not stay that long... I can't put into words how disheartened and dismayed I am that our little family cannot be together this Christmas either.
