Most likely you are busy getting ready to have family or friends over for the holidays or on your way to visit others. For some, this is a difficult or sad time of year; if you know someone struggling to make it through the holidays, try and reach out to them.
Many of you are about to be sleeved, recently sleeved, or like me, a year or so out at this point. From my vantage point, I think most of us can focus on spending time with loved ones and not worry as much about all the food that’s around, but for others it will be harder with all the temptations. For me and many others, we’re no longer worried about how much weight we will gain this Christmas and how we will lose it when we make that inevitable New Year’s resolution to lose weight! Another reason to be grateful this season!
Since many of us are busy and have lots of holiday letters to read, I will keep this short and share two lovely holiday items with you that we received this week. One is a wish that we received from a local Dutch artist and its simple message touched my heart. I don’t think he would mind if I shared it with all of you:
For 2013 we wish you:
The happiness of satisfaction
Wonderful holidays and trips
Beautiful moments of reflection
Pleasing eye contact
Delicious food & drinks
Shared body warmth
Unforgettable art experiences
A good mood
Tailwind, sometimes a bit counter current
A shining sun!
Lastly, I will leave you with this: Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” played on a glass harp. (CLICK ON LINK.) It’s only 2 minutes long and I hope you will take the time to listen to it; it’s quite moving and a lovely sentiment of the season. I loved watching their gentle hands glide over the glasses… I hope you enjoy it as much as my husband and I did.
As I wind down my weekly posts, I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting me (and each other) over the past 14 months. I sincerely wish you a wonderful and joyous Christmas (or whatever you celebrate with loved ones).
Until next week here’s wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS, GELUKKIG KERSTFEEST, FROHE WEIHNACHTEN AND MELE KALIKIMAKA!
