Holiday Thoughts!!

I thought I was well enough to face the shopping mall today. I was wrong. The noise, strident colors, and lack of true care were shocking to me. I've been living in a different world.

I came home and sent an email to those with whom I will share the holiday. I requested that all this month when they think of going Christmas shopping for me, instead they go for a walk or pause in nature, or just sit and reflect. I plan to do the same. At first, I was thinking that was enough, and it may be, but, then, I thought, what if they took note of that moment, or moments, and wrote it on a slip of paper. I have a glass bowl that was my grandmother's and I am thinking we could fill that bowl with slips of wonderful moments of this month of December, anonymous moments, and, then, on Christmas Eve open the slips rather than presents, and read them aloud.

I suggest it to you, perhaps including moments of kindness you observe, receive or do.

If anyone would like to send slips of paper for our bowl, that would be lovely, or create your own. No matter what, we are all sharing one beautifully, delightful, shimmering, glimmering bowl, and it is alight with Love! Simmer now deep peace and ease, like the trees.
