Happy Holidays! May your winter break be filled with rest, love and exciting activities! May your heart fill with peace and joy! This year went by so fast, so much happened along the way, and we are grateful for all the challenges and blessings. There were surprises, such as our son’s marching band needing us, the volunteer parents, to help push very heavy equipment at their competitions. But that gave us the opportunity to view all the amazing, jaw-dropping performances. There were wildfire catastrophes in our area, but somehow our house was spared. Our house is not in the zone for the best and most popular high school in our area, but our son got accepted via a lottery waiting list. Our younger son, who is the smallest soccer player on his team, got into the Elite All-Star Soccer Team at the end of the season… All the blessings, my heart is filled with gratitude…
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
May you also count your blessings, and see how beautiful life is! Below is a gift from my friend, Grace, back in College when she visited Jamaica, I would like to share it with you…
