not sure how the Easter Bunny fits into all of this
but I can not say no to the candy
during this time of year I have recieved a number of cards from various relatives
there are certain relatives that send me cards around the time of religious holidays
often these cards contain a message that a mass was said in my honor or that a chicken was given to a family under my name
I am all for the chicken as I am a big fan of chicken
but the mass thing always leaves me feeling a little empty
as I am not religious myself
like to think of myself as spiritual
still trying to figure it all out
but most definitely not a big joiner for this organized religion thing
so this mass said in my name always hits me as a little odd
would it work for me to donate money in their name to my favorite charities?
if I were to send money to my organizations of interest as a gift to them
how would they respond?
A donation has been made in your name to the International Mountain Bike Association.
Have a Nice Holiday
your loving grandson
Dear Uncle Joe (i am not sure i have an uncle joe)how would the recipient feel?
This holiday season a gift has been given to the people of the Mid-Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts!
more then likely they would have that same vacant feeling that I get when I open the letter from them
a little question of "why?"
a little question of my motivation
a little question of my understanding of them
then the letter would be tossed aside
I am thankful that they are thinking of me
the fact that they feel that this action aids me does please me
but... I think that if they were to donate the money towards an interest that is more towards my liking would make sense
just send another chicken
I am not against a family in Central America getting a chicken that they can name Gwadzilla
sometimes I wonder...
does god read my blog?
guess she doesn't have to
as she can read my thoughts
if god can read my thoughts.... I can type anything I want
as she already knows how I really feel
which also elimiates the need for prayer
as she already knows that I am thankful
no need to pray for this lottery ticket to be a winner
she is already reading my mind
