                                                       This Holiday Season

This has been a rough two years. The pandemic seems to want to hang around in its various forms. Yet this time of the year is supposed to be cheerful and bright. So with that in mind, we took a ride around our local towns looking for the brightness of the season and found some homes lit up for the holiday.

This one, in particular, was a sweet illustration of the light that we share. There is nothing fancy, no multi-colored lights or air-blown snowmen or blinking snowflakes, but it seems to reflect the light that shines within each of us.

I hope it’s a reminder that no matter what is happening in the world, we can still see the brightness of existence. And, perhaps, if we shift our way of thinking, we can offer compassion to all those who are suffering and bring light and joy to ourselves.

  1. What an elegant light display. And yes, when I'm feeling pulled down by all that is happening, I try to focus on the many shining lights - the people who bring food, shelter, kind thoughts and caring to the people who are truly suffering during this season.

  2. We do need to keep our focus, as you say, on the shining lights. Each day is an opportunity to take a deep breath and find something to be thankful for in this difficult time.
