is upon us
followed by Christmas
nights are longer and colder
the Christmas Star makes an appearance when Saturn and Jupiter form a brilliant star as they appear in the night sky.
Clouds part and the skies have been colorful!
Sunrises and sunsets are brilliant!
Will we have a white Christmas with fluffy snowflakes – enough to sled in? It’s everyone’s Christmas wish!
This year has proven to be one of the most challenging in my life and in the lives of everyone I know from Brussels to Washington State, Providence Rhode Island to Pantego North Carolina, every country, city, town and island in-between.
Recently a friend asked a question on Facebook has anyone accomplished anything they are proud of? I answered with the following:
- I managed to live a grateful life
- to forgive those who have hurt me over and over again for years
- to schedule a meditation/yoga hour every morning before going to work at 8 a.m.
- to participate in an 8 hour certification class for Reiki Tummo Level II
- to listen more
- to be more compassionate with others
- to paint
- play games
- spend more time in the woods
- to write and converse with the Divine
- to attend more meetings regarding recovery and self-discovery
- to be an advocate for those suffering with the effects of a prescribed medication such as a benzodiazapene
- to create more photocards
- to draw more
- to be more appreciative of my spouse and co-workers
- to be more empathetic to those who have less and struggle more
There’s been many opportunities to love, to give, to share what I have with others, and I have done my best.
What will 2021 bring? I don’t know. What I do know is that praying to God and taking care of myself is essential, if I am to help others.
Planting seeds of kindness and gratitude will produce love the size of sunflowers.
May God bless each of you with health and a heart full of gratitude and kindess.
