We all experience bleak times where our hearts suffer from our ‘mindstuff’, our stories. Things can look lifeless and sadness can take hold. It’s good to notice it and feel it. At the same time, I remember that all things change and I will have the opportunity to rejoice again.

The first to lift their faces to the morning sun, they bring joy and peace on a cold late winter morning.

Who feels happiness and bliss like a dog? He makes me want to go lie on the floor in the sunlight myself!

The big day is upon us and rightly, the kids are showing up soon! I have decorated, knit gifts, wrapped presents and entertained myself with holiday concerts, plays and lightshows. I am ready! I’m ready for the best day of the year with all the ups and downs that come with it. I’m ready for peace, and that special family time we’ve planned. I’m ready for the joy and the lull after gift opening when everyone sits around playing with their gifts. I’m ready for our annual seafood Christmas Eve supper and the candlelight service at the UU church. I am so ready!!!

As the wheel of the year turns, the light will be returning soon. Here in NH we are enticing it early with our own light, one in each window. Welcoming, guiding, a message to the world that peace lies within.

Whether trust is eroded or faithfully strong, sometimes you must simply strike off in the right direction and know you’ve done all that you could. Today is such a day. I trust that I am held in love and peace, and all will be well.

Oh, blessed wheel, your turning brings me joy! I live in New England because I love the change of seasons, and here we are beginning a new one. Just the faintest beginnings but I can clearly see you. I am grateful for your singular peace.

In the face of hostile comments when I post my opinion on Facebook. Once again, yoga saved my life.

Now that the kidneys are back in their home groove, things fall back into place here too. Our morning yoga practice for example. This is the balm on my soul because through experiencing those meditating moments beyond daily concerns, I can then move through and past what seems insurmountable, and stay true to my heart. It’s my daily gift to myself.

It is a perfect morning here on the porch wrapped in a blanket. The smell of the sea air, the bird calls echo through my childhood memories, and the sun on my face makes me smile. May this day bring peace and happiness, purpose and light, understanding and rest. Aho.
