An Amusing Yet Worthy Holiday Sentiment

adore listening to vintage holiday tunes! Do you?

A few afternoons ago, I was listening to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra singing Auld Lang Syne.  It must have been recorded as part of an old television or radio special.  As the song ended, some unknown voice came over the air at the end of the recording thanking all for tuning in.  The host's final words were so amusing; nevertheless, what was said begs for further contemplation...

He said, "Put your troubles away until tomorrow. if you’re lucky, someone will break into your house tonight and steal them!”

Great thought, huh? Amusing; yet, so very thought provoking.  What if it were that easy--to tuck our worries to bed and then have them whisked away?  Stolen out from under us--just like that...

I'm vowing to mindfully try--to simply put all worries away. Deal with the joy of each moment versus life's "What if's."  How about you?  Want to join me in this effort? It's a worthy cause, yes?
