This December has been a time of poignant reflection. I have been intentional about honoring the past year and all of the lessons that it taught me. There were many difficult lessons, ones that I never dreamed I would encounter. Life can be a great teacher! By embracing the small moments and big milestones, I have grown in so many unexpected ways.
I have been intentionally focused on
creating moments of Comfort and Joy.
Just last week, as I hurried from place to place,
the bright afternoon sunshine drew me to
a joyful, unplanned destination.
The Winter Flower show at our nearby Conservatory
was in full bloom!
Wrapped in the love of family and friends,
I am happily celebrating
a simpler, quieter holiday season this year.
The magic of the season glows
with sweet reflection,
small handmade gifts of love,
and time spent connecting with those I hold dear.
Favorite holiday traditions warm the heart…
and new traditions add cozy, comfort!
TIME is my most precious gift ~
time with loved ones,
time to learn and grow,
time to give and share …
and time to just BE.
Sending big hugs and warm thoughts
to anyone hurting during this holiday season.
Look for small moments of Comfort and Joy
in each and every day.
Celebrate in your own special way!
May we all step into the new year (and new decade!)
with light, grateful hearts!
Merry Christmas, sweet friends!
So grateful for your visits and thoughtful comments
all year long!
