Love and gratitude permeate the air this holiday season. It is the one time a year, we collectively look around and appreciate those in our lives. We celebrate and remind each other of what makes life truly valuable (I’m not talking about presents ;). There is no better time to give thanks for our life and look forward to new beginnings as we start another year.
In our family we celebrate several traditions. Today we celebrate Solstice which is the change between autumn and winter. It is the darkest day of the year. The celebration is to welcome back the return of the light. We share our hopes for the coming year and celebrate with a ceremony, a time of giving and a feast.
We also celebrate Christmas and Santa. But today is Solstice so I want to share my Solstice tradition of sharing a wish. Wishes are like free magic. Anyone can send out a wish for another person and wishes are always made from love. Best of all, the giver and receiver share something money can’t buy.
So reader, I would like to how grateful I am for your arrival here. However you arrived, I appreciate anyone who takes a moment to read. I hope you found something to spark your interest or see something new to take with you.
My wish for you on this Solstice evening is for you to go into the New Year and find light and hope around every corner. I wish you peace, love and prosperity on your path to fulfilling your dreams. May you and those you love find infinite reasons to smile every day.
Have a wonderful Winter Solstice and a Happy New Year!
