The holidays can be wonderful when we make them so but they can also be a very overhelming time. I know I feel like I am in a whirlwind during this period, lifted from one place to another, barely touching the ground for the entire month. The activities of this time keep my mind and body in constant motion. But we all need a nice place to land as well. The darker evenings certainly make my warm blankets and soft sofa seem so much more comfortable and soothing. We can make use of the early dusk by curling up next to loved ones (pets and all), reading a little, wrapping ourselves in one of our blankets or enjoying a warm drink with a friend.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein
Let us choose the one where every day is a miracle! This picture was sent to me by a pastor. It is of an albino peacock and he is very rare. I looked at this vision and knew he was a miracle! He looks like a beautiful snowflake! Enjoy the beauty of your day.
Happy Holidays and Peace to All! Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.
