As we get older, our Christmas list becomes less about store bought gifts and more about those priceless feelings of togetherness. I’ve found it’s the simplicity of spending quality time with family and friends that means more to me than anything else. As the title above reads, it’s about PRESENCE and not PRESENTS.
Being present during the holidays helps to encourage and grow feelings of joy, peace and good cheer. It’s sharing time and connecting with people. It’s the simple joys of goodwill that we foster when we get out of the commercialism of Christmas and into the basic feeling of love to all.
Enjoy the simplicity of Christmas presence this year. Open your hearts with gratitude for this moment in time. Be thankful for each and every blessing and share your heartlights with all whom you encounter. Life is good, even when it’s difficult and a loving presence is all we truly have.
May your September begin with much health, love, and gratitude! May you have the loveliest month ahead! Keep shining your heartlights please because many of us are still on TILT and our world could use all the kindness, compassion, patience, understanding and love that we can give!
I can’t believe the date! August 1st already?! Time has flown by this summer. I remember my Mom’s family always saying that time speeds up as we get older. But here we are again dear friends! The first of the month and you know what that means, don’t you?
I looked back to the original post and it was on June 1, 2014 that I began the tradition. Does it seem like it’s been four years already? Time certainly flies in some respects and with others, it’s very slow and sometimes tedious.
But today’s a celebration – an anniversary of sorts for the four years that I’ve been reminding you to welcome the new month full of goodness! So join me today in cheering for a month ahead filled with heartlights shining, love surrounding us and all the goodness this Universe has to offer each and every one of us!
Smile today! Feel the blessings that are bestowed on you and raise your vibrations to embrace all with whom you connect today – especially yourself!
Wow it’s a banner day with three ‘holidays’ on the same day! Woo Hoo! I awoke this morning and saw sweet Clover hopping by! I love how he arrived to greet me on this special day! By the way, I heard we are to have snow tomorrow. What a funny April Fool’s joke Mother Nature! I hope she’s kidding, but it’s not looking like a joke!
I hope that you have a beautiful day filled with love, peace, joy and togetherness with those whom you love! Enjoy every precious moment!
God Bless and Shine On!
