Default Merry Christmas and best of the Season

I don't adjust my belief's and thoughts for anyone but myself so I truly hope nobody finds my greeting offensive. I have learned more about tolerance, if not acceptance, this year than any before.
I was ill through most of 2012 and mostly alone, though sometimes alone was good. I met a number of unusual people through my illness and found myself again in the process.
I found out one day when I sought to do something unthinkable that there is a higher power there, call him/her God or any other name I have long known there was more to life than a sudden end. The voice that saved me is still with me today and I am alive because of it.
I began to heal and feel better a couple of months ago, I met a Woman, Judy, who has given me a second chance with life I have been humbled so many times this year.
Through all of this there was fly fishing. I dragged myself down to the river again and again because I knew it would bring healing if I could just keep going back. Eventually through that time on the water, that voice that snapped me back to reality, then helped Judy find me, I am here facing one more challenge that I am able to overcome.
You all were there at times, Ard doesn't know this either but I used to hang out here and just read your thoughts and stories and information and it helped me through those times when I could not be on the water. I guess I fished vicariously through you all.
So Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, any of you will always be welcome to share water with me.....Kerry

Hey hey, Merry Christmas Kerry. Hang in there, we are all little kids in the eyes of God, and we are all just trying to do what we are supposed to do. Sometimes it takes a little bit of growing up. 120 years is probably not enough for us to really learn to be adults in His eyes. But we do our best.

And we also catch a few fish while we are at it.

Kerry, I've learned too that God has a plan for me. Not always something I understand, but something I have faith in. Life is worth living if you have the will.

Merry & Safe Christmas to All!

Glad life is returning to normal for you Kerry, belief in something bigger than ourselves and the love of a good woman are treasures to hold tightly to.

Here's wishing all my friends near and far away, a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Thank you everyone for your wishes and kind words. I lost my Sister 3 months ago, we were both suffering same symptoms of two different illnesses. She was 41, her Son Jordan is 17. I miss her terribly but this Spring my Son and I will introduce Jordan to some water that is close to home and maybe we can all find healing together.
Funny old life huh?

This was written for wounded Soldiers by Sam Tate but it pertains I think in some way to all of us.
