There is a song from the ’60s that kept going through my mind the past few months while I have been in Morgantown, Pittsburgh and North Carolina.

The main theme is, “If you aren’t near the one you love, love the one you are near.” The rest of the words are:

        Don’t be angry and don’t be sad,

        Just keep smiling, think about the good times you had.

        Cause there’s somebody right next to you

        And they’re just waiting for something to do.

        There’s a rose in a fisted glove,

        And the eagle flies, with the dove.

        If you can’t be with the one you love,

        Then love the one you’re with.

        If you can’t be near the one you love,

                love the one you’re near.

I have been away from Calhoun County where the people are the loves of my life, but I can’t be sad, because Calhoun love goes on all around my world. Wherever I am, Calhoun love can be shared with the people who are near at the time. I read and hear about the neighborly acts going on back home to help out people who have many kinds of needs. Then, I find that there are the same needs here and Calhoun’s ways of caring and sharing can be found no matter where I may be at any time.

I am wishing you all a blessed Christmas, shared not only with those you love, but those who may need your love.
