I have been to so many parties lately
tonight was our local writer's group,
next monday is Daughters of Utah Pioneers.
Last week we had our women's group
get together then our church's party
plus a lunch bunch gathering and
a group of neighbors came together
to play games and eat. It's a socializing
time of the year which is good otherwise
we'd all become hermits this time of year
hiding inside from the cold darkness.
Instead we are meeting together and
celebrating the holidays still to come.
Soon Christmas will be here, the presents
all opened and enjoyed, more feasting
then it will be time for resolving for
the New Year to eat smarter and start
exercising better to get fit and healthy.
We are strange habitual creatures
who need each other and connections.
