“May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder” John O’Donohue
You see as I made a deal with myself to enjoy December and not get all caught up in the hustle, bustle holiday chaos, I have decided to slow down. Release Control. Be quiet. Enjoy. In making this choice, things have happened like this, playing cards by the fire with littlest and only girl. I have decided after much thought to just leave the tree bare with its simple white lights. The tree in itself holds such a simple beauty. And I’m grateful to Michelle who gave me the idea to create 31 envelopes with 31 ideas. Playing games was yesterday’s envelope. Today we get to try a new food, something we have never had before. Our envelopes are filled with things to enjoy together along with random acts of kindness.
If you look closely you will see, littlest and only girl doesn’t even pull these cards in any particular order (another area I had to release control of) I found this LOVE at Target the other night. I wasn’t looking for it, it was just there! I could not pass it up. I have a weakness for these things, anything that lights up, coffee mugs and chairs. So we do have this little bit of decoration up. I will most likely keep it up for the long-term because LOVE is a powerful thing and I think it’s power should shine all year-long.
