“Am I not here, I, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection?

when she appeared to him in 1531

TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday1212.htm

Thursday, Dec. 12, 1861
CAROLINA COASTAL CONFLICT CONTINUES


The armies may have mostly settled into winter camps around the countryside by now, but mere bad weather was not enough to put a halt to the activities of the U.S. Navy. The blockade effort continued to be strengthened as the number of ships available to be put on patrol continued to be increased. Actual military efforts were today concentrated on the Ashepoo River area. Ships carrying sailors and Marines steamed in and out of the main base which had been established in Port Royal Sound. The purpose of the venture was to locate any concentrations of Confederate forces, and beyond that, to allow captains and navigators to familiarize themselves with the tricky and complicated inlets of the coastline.

FOG FRUSTRATES FREDERICKSBURG FIGHTING


The first part of the battle had started yesterday, as the Federal troops under Gen. Ambrose Burnside had struggled to build pontoon bridges to transport their men across the Rappahannock River while under fire from Confederate sharpshooters. After repeated failures the effort had finally succeeded and Union troops moved to establish their beachhead before night fell. When morning came it was hard to tell--a thick fog had risen from the river overnight and filled the valley, lasting until noon. Troops continued to move in the limited visibility, but slowly, and when the fog finally broke up it was far too late in the day to launch an assault. The major activity on the Union side was to move as many men as possible as far up the hill as possible. Looking down on the action, Lee sent orders to Stonewall Jackson, guarding another ford farther downstream, to rejoin the main force.

SHIPS SINGE SALT SUPPLIERS

Smoke still rose this morning from the charred wood that until yesterday had been a large salt works in St. Andrew’s Bay, Florida. Acting Master W.R. Browne of the USS Restless, along with two other ships, had found the outpost and launched an attack on it. Artillery fire hit one of the houses of the workers, and wind had spread the flames until nearly the whole compound was incinerated. Brown wrote in his report, “It was in fact a complete village...employing many hands and 16 ox and mule teams constantly to haul salt to Eufaula Sound and from thence conveyed to Montgomery, at which place it is selling at fabulous prices--$40 and $50 per bushel.” The operation included 22 large steam boilers and 300 kettles averaging 200 gallons each, used to evaporate sea water to harvest the salt. The 2000 bushels found were returned to the sea from whence they had come.

Monday, Dec. 12, 1864
MAJOR MCALLISTER MOVE MOBILIZED


Four Union Army corps’ under Gen. William T. Sherman had marched from Atlanta to the Sea--almost. They were on the outskirts of Savannah, and out in the Atlantic awaited the Navy vessels carrying their new supply source. The only thing standing in the way was an installation called Fort McAllister, and the only way to reach it was over the 1000-foot long King’s Bridge over the Ogeechee River. This, understandably, had been destroyed by the Confederate defenders of McAllister. Gen. Sherman had set his engineers to work on the problem, and they reported today that the rebuilding work was nearly completed. Preparations were therefore put underway to put it to the test. The assault on Ft. McAllister would take place in the morning.


      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 12/11/11 - "Marine wants this to rollover US":

THE UNITED STATES NAVY SALUTES OUR U.S. MARINE CORPS.... 



THE MARINES WANT THIS TO ROLL ALL OVER THE U.S., Canada and The World
Please don't delete this until you send it on, Let's send it around the world. 
FRIENDS ARE BORN, NOT MADE 

This is a poem being sent from a Marine To his dad. For those who take the time To read it, you'll see a letter from him to his dad at the bottom. It makes you truly thankful for not only the Marines, but ALL of our troops. 

THE MARINE
 

We all came together, 
Both young and old 
To fight for our freedom, 
To stand and be bold.
 

In the midst of all evil, 
We stand our ground, 
And we protect our country 
From all terror around.
 


Peace and not war, 
Is what some people say. 
But I'll give my life, 
So you can live the American way.
 

I give you the right 
To talk of your peace. 
To stand in your groups, 
And protest in our streets.
 

But still I fight on, 
I don't bitch, I don't whine. 
I'm just one of the people
 
Who is doing your time. 

I'm harder than nails, 
Stronger than any machine. 
I'm the immortal soldier, 
I'm a U.S. MARINE!
 

So stand in my shoes, 
And leave from your home. 
Fight for the people who hate you, 
With the protests they've shown. 

Fight for the stranger, 
Fight for the young. 
So they all may have, 
The greatest freedom you've won.
 

Fight for the sick, 
Fight for the poor. 
Fight for the cripple, 
Who lives next door.
 

But when your time comes, 
Do what I've done. 
For if you stand up for freedom,
You'll stand when the fight's done.
 

By: Corporal Aaron M. Gilbert, US Marine Corps 
USS SAIPAN, PERSIAN GULF
 

July 23 

Hey Dad, 

Do me a favor and label this 'The Marine' and send it to everybody on your email list. Even leave this letter in it. I want this rolling all over the US and Canada and The World. I want every home reading it, every eye seeing it, and every heart to feel it. So can you please send this for me? I would. but my email time isn't that long and I don't have much time anyway. 
You know what, Dad? I wondered what it would be like to truly understand what JFK said in his inaugural speech. 'When the time comes to lay down my life for my country, I do not cower from this responsibility. I welcome it.'

Well, now I know. And I do, Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do. Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, and I will miss the birth of our first born child, I would do it 70 times over to fight for the place that God has made for my home. I love you all and I miss you very much. I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby, but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing, I will be coming home soon. Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too. 
Aaron 


Please let this marine (and all our military) know we care by passing his poem onto your friends even if you don't usually take time to forward mail...do it this time!
 
Thanks,
 
Let's help Aaron's dad spread the word .....FREEDOM isn't FREE; someone pays for you and me.
 

   Thanks so much, Dools!


  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 12/11/11 - "Dogs Know":

This really is a great story!

Anyone who has pets will really like this. You'll like it even if you don't and you may even decide you need one!


Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real character.

Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.

Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease......in fact; she was just sure it was fatal.

She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her....what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through.

If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him! The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.

The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.

Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap.

Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called.. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed.

When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned!

While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life.

He had covered her with his love.

Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky. He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.


Remember.....live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing from God. And never forget....the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care for us.

If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

A small request - All you are asked to do is keep this circulating.

Dear God, I pray for the cure of cancer.
Amen.

All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if it is only to one more person, in memory of anyone you know that has been struck down by cancer or is still fighting their battle.

   Thank you so much, Joyce!
 


 

CHRISTMAS BONUS:

Gold, Circumstance and Mud

I was babysitting my four children while my wife had gone shopping. Baby-sitting to me is reading the paper while my wife had gone shopping. Baby-sitting to me is reading the paper while the kids mess up the house. Only that day I wasn't reading. I was fuming…

There was a knock on the door. Then Nancy's voice, "Daddy, we have a play to put on. Would you like to see it?"

I didn't. But I have fatherly responsibilities…so I followed her into the living room. Right away I knew it was a Christmas play, for at the foot of the piano stool was a lighted flashlight wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a shoebox.

Rex, age six, came in wearing my bathrobe and carrying a mop handle. He sat on the stool and looked at the flashlight. Nancy, age ten, draped a sheet over her head, stood behind Rex, and began, "I'm Mary and this boy is Joseph. Usually in this play Joseph stands up and Mary sits down, but Mary sitting down is taller than Joseph standing up so we thought it looked better this way.”

Enter Trudy, age four, at a full run. There were pillowcases over her arms. She spread them wide and said only "I'm an angel."

Then came Ann, age eight. I knew she was a wise man because she had on her mother's high heels and walked like she was a wise man riding a camel. On a pillow she carried three items, undoubtedly gold, frankincense, and myrrh. She walked across the room and announced, "I'm all three wise men. I bring precious gifts: gold, circumstance, and mud."

That was all. The play was over. I didn't laugh, I prayed. How near the truth Ann was. We come at Christmas burdened down with gold, with the showy gifts and the tinselly tree. Under the circumstance we can do no other. And it really does seem a bit like mud when you think about it. But my children saw through the earthly and found the real reason for Christmas -- to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

  From http://www.FlyLady.net - 12/07/11 - "SPA Testimonial: Anti-Martyr Christmas Tree":

Dear FlyLady,

I am very good about buying pamper stuff to put in my cabinet and to give to others. This year as I was pulling out some of those items to wrap to give away, I decided to GIVE a few of THEM TO ME INSTEAD! Notably, a Bath and Body works scented wall plug in...I was going to give to my sister. I decided to just PLUG IT IN MY OWN BEDROOM and enjoy the scent of Freesia for myself as I am getting ready for her to come visit! When she comes I can plug it in her bedroom as I know she likes that scent! I have enjoyed it as I am getting ready to bless others. (This I got last year half price after Christmas...pampering ourselves we can do on a budget if we shop wisely...)

Another thing I have done over the past 3 years is to take note of things at nice hotels that I love. I pinpointed 3 things. The hair dryer on the wall, the magnifying mirror on the wall , and the nice towels. I purchased these 3 things for my own home...outlet stores and discount stores sell them if you hunt enough. I wash my towels and just rehang them when they dry. I don't need a stack of them! I only bought the bath towel, I didn't need a set to feel pampered. I did these things because you taught us to be good to ourselves and FLY! I enjoy them everyday! Also good quality sheets are now quite affordable. I would rather have one set of good sheets than a linen closet full of scratchy ones. Enough is enough!

Also we bought some fire logs ( also half price at the end of the season in the mark down section of the grocery store) and have decided anytime we want the fun of a fire we can just use them, not save them for company or special events. We also are leaving out the Chinese checkers board all the time and playing a quick game on a regular basis. It is on the end table so its easy to use. (This mostly also keeps the end table from ever becoming a hotspot! ) On anti-procrastination day I finally spray varnished the board to protect it...my Papa made it years ago and I have meant to give it a protective coating for years! I thank you each time we play!

I put out a pretty tray of different hot chocolates with a platter of mugs....nearly everyday one or a few of us stir up some hot chocolate. No need to wait for company to come to treat the family. There are some diet versions and some rich gourmet ones. My son likes ones with marshmallows. Having a variety makes us feel like we are at a Bed and Breakfast!"

I had bought some pretty Christmas pillows to give away (yes, at the after Christmas sale!) They have been in my attic waiting for the right person at the right time. I brought them down to send to my sister-in-law and realized that they perfectly match my new couch! so now my own family is enjoying them... and I know they wouldn't match her couch very well at all!

My best pamper I did for myself last Christmas. I bought myself a small Christmas tree. It had become a big Longlasting Martyr Moment to get the tree, set it up, and decorate without the help or enthusiasm I wanted from my family. Taking it down was worse. I bought the small tree because I do the work. My Dear Husband said, "I don't know if I am ready for a small tree!"

I said, "Well, when you become the person doing all the Christmas Decorating and taking down and putting away, you can get the kind you want to put up and decorate! and take down and put away!"

I love this tree and it is JUST RIGHT! It is on a cedar chest so it is still standing tall! I can set it up and decorate it without being frustrated about the help I need and am not getting! It's my ANTI-MARTYR CHRISTMAS TREE! They like it too!

Thank you FLYLADY for making the HOLIDAYS and ALL DAYS so much improved as we make this journey!

We love to FLY!

FlyBaby L.

You are not behind! I don't want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?


     From Me ('65) of NC - 12/12/11 - "RE: Anti-Martyr Christmas Tree":

   It should come as no surprise to anyone by now that I am weird.  Even so, I was astonished by the sentiments expressed by FlyBaby L.  I can scarcely comprehend her thoughts.  I would have felt like a martyr if I did NOT have a Christmas tree - or two!  I like everything about Christmas - especially the decorating - and I chomp at the bit until the day arrives when I may begin!

   I had transformed our hearth room into a - shall we say - festive childlike haven for Santa Clauses and snowmen, but was delighted when my children of other parents,     Joe Mansfield (Stanton College Prep School, FL - 2002) AND Megan Fulmer Mansfield (Marshall HS, TX - 2002) of NC gave me their old tree (which I adorned more formally) so I could place it in our picture window in the living room so it could be seen from outside!

   Thanks again, Chickadees!

From http://www.FlyLady.net - 12/11/11 - "My Choir Debut":

Dear Marla and crew,

Tomorrow night, I make my debut in a choir singing Vivaldi's "Gloria".

I have always wanted to join a choir and this year I found the time. I am very excited about the performance, we are being joined by an orchestra and 3 wonderful soloists as well as a large group of schoolchildren. I have enjoyed every minute of the rehearsals; it is like a prayer from start to finish (probably because it is a prayer!) and we are singing carols at the end so I have been in a Christmas mood since we started practicing in August.

I thought it might become a chore but it has been a tonic; a lot on concentration was needed to sing the part. It was really enjoyable to learn something new and difficult. It was a real oasis of rest and relaxation in the middle of the week. We had a break for tea and chat which was always interesting and relaxing.

My family and friends are coming to watch; for years I have been attending my children's Christmas concerts, now they can come to mine.

It has been a little tougher keeping home in order with a night less at home each week but I have done a bit of delegating. Between date night, friend's night and choir night I am out almost every second night but it is a pleasant balance.

People talk of a work-life balance but it is fun to have a world-home balance, getting out to socialize as it is easy to stress over things that need doing in a house which can be forgotten easily when one is out and one appreciates home better then on a quiet night in!

Flying onstage!

FlyLady here: I would have loved to hear this concert. What beautiful music!

Routines and BabySteps help you find the balance so you have time to do something fun and new!


     From Me ('65) of NC - 12/12/11 - "Musical Christmas Celebration":

   Hmmm - what a "coincidence".....

   This Saturday, December 17, 2011, our Fayetteville Stake is holding a Musical Christmas Celebration under the inspired direction of the incomparable       Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of NC.

http://charisbeanduke.org/index.php
 

     As you may or may not know, members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir are released with the dawning of their 60th birthday, but Charis is allowing       my sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59 - of NC) and me to sing (alto) in her stake choir, and we are thrilled and honored to do so!  Thanks again, Charis!

   (Eleanor and I are still daily awed by the fact that we even know anyone as magnificent as Charis, let alone are privileged to call her one of our dearest friends.)

 
 
 
   If y'all are close enough to join us, please do so; it's free and open to the public!


From http://www.FlyLady.net - 12/11/11 - "Testimonial: It Didn't Sound Right":
 

Dear FlyLady,

I have been flying and perching (lol) for a couple of years now, but I realized the other day that even though I have learned so much, I still had some stinkin' thinkin' lingering in my head!

I was taking a moment to run a purple rag over an area of tile in the bathroom that had gotten dusty, and I told my husband, who was with me, that "FlyLady says that any work, even if done improperly, still blesses your home."

Somehow, that didn't sound right!

It took a few moments for my side-tracked brain to realize that I had said "improperly" instead of "imperfectly"--and what a huge difference between those two words!

Those old, negative pre-FlyLady thoughts can still pop up sometimes.

That was the old me talking, the one who thought that if she found some dusty tile in the bathroom, that it meant a full-scale job with buckets and cleaners and several rags and a whole lot of time--so much time that I would feel overwhelmed and give up before I even started, because I couldn't do it "properly!"

Thank you so much for helping me to see what a burden and an obstacle my perfectionism was (and still is--it's sneaky), and for everything you do to help us all live better lives!

Sign me,
Flying in New Mexico

FlyLady here: Fling your perfectionism and FLY!!


From http://www.FlyLady.net - 12/11/11 - "Pampering #10":

Dear FlyLady,

I kept trying to figure out how to pamper myself...I know it is an investment, it's just that what I really want to do to pamper myself I am saving for and then I figured it out.

I pamper myself by staying on my diet (well, lifestyle change :)). I pamper myself when I go to the store and pick up what I need for success in this area of my life. I pamper myself by doing some kind of activity daily. This also helps me stay on track with my weight goals. I pamper myself when I say no to the kinds of food that make me sluggish and tired and yes to the foods that energize me. I pamper myself when I get enough sleep (and go to bed at a decent hour).

Thanks!

Flying in Idaho!

Kelly here: Our habit this month is pampering.

Do something just for yourself everyday!

I am so proud of you.

You are not behind! I don't want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?

A man went to the Police Station wishing to speak with the burglar who had broken into his house the night before.

"You'll get your chance in court," said the Desk Sergeant.

"No, no, no!" said the man. "I want to know how he got into the house without waking my wife. I've been trying to do that for years!"

Alma Redemptoris Mater

Loving Mother of our Savior
 
Ascribed to Hermannus Contractus, d.1054
 
Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli
Porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,
Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti,
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

Loving Mother of our Savior, hear thou thy people's cry
Star of the deep and Portal of the sky!

Mother of Him who thee made from nothing made.
Sinking we strive and call to thee for aid:
Oh, by what joy which Gabriel brought to thee,
Thou Virgin first and last, let us thy mercy see.
