Gratitude for what has been created and shared. Appreciation for the simplicities of life. Gifts received and given in thanks. The planting of the new during this time of winter Beautiful Creation all around in contrast to destruction. Merry Christmas Collette. Thank you for all you do and share. Love the candle lit in the window Hope indeed
The cottage is quiet.
Outside the remains of the storm huff and puff it’s remaining fury.
Inside the thick stone walls it’s Christmas Eve.
There will be a full moon on Christmas night, the first one since 1977.
But, this morning, the rays of the Midwinter sun illuminate the grey morning and all is quiet.
Quiet is a welcome word after a night of howling wind and relentless rain.
My blessed thanks to those of you who sent me good wishes and gifts.
I am heartily grateful to receive the appreciation of friends.
Friends like Heather, who made me this beautiful brooch, stitched with love.
I have pinned it to the lapel of my jacket…it is a thing of beauty indeed!
It is the little notes, gifts and donations that bring a sense of being appreciated.
I am indeed blessed to live my life in the service of Mother Earth…
