Jackson Grant was caught between a rock and a hard place. Those youthful indiscretions could come back to haunt one, and Jackson felt his time at hand. His beautiful wife, Tosha, wanted to attend a rock concert by two of her favorite performers. But would doing so open up old memories? Ones that Jackson wanted to keep in the past? Who doesn’t dream of life on the road, on tour, part of a rock and roll entourage? But dreams don’t always come true, even as part of a Rock and Roll Fantasy.
Rock And Roll Fantasy due for release on December 9th from http://www.romancedivine.com/.
Christmas is just around the corner and already I’m tired of seeing the decorations in the stores and lit up on the main streets. Most of the people in our community have decorated their homes, lawns, ornaments in yards and every other place imaginable.
It’s not that I’m down on Christmas, but I’d like to wait at least until Thanksgiving is over and out of the way. Why is every one in such a rush? Is it to promote the idea that it’s time to start shopping for gifts already and helping store owners rake in the cash?
Some of you are probably saying bah humbug about my blog. What I want to emphasize is the reason for Christmas. To me, it isn’t the expensive gifts we give, or receive. There’s something missing in Christmas in our fast-paced society and we need to try to change things.
I’d like to get back to the true meaning of why we should celebrate. Giving is the main word. We should try to give to the less fortunate in our community and make sure their needs are met whether it’s donating to the food pantries or in giving to the bell ringers, or other charities that abound in this season.
I try to donate hoping to make someone else’s Christmas just a little brighter. This gives me more pleasure than receiving gifts. Well, I guess it’s about time for me to get off my soapbox. But don’t forget to keep the less fortunate in mind in this Holiday season. A little token or gift would probably help the person that isn’t going to have a good Holiday to having a great one.
