Snow Day-Christmas Wishes

Though we often have snow on Christmas.. they say this is the snowiest here since 1945... we already have about 8 inches of new snowfall and are headed for 10-12 more! How absolutely beautiful. Blessings and a very Merry Christmas to all..

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

I spent the early part of the week in the hospital, in part due to congenital issues and the precious balance of hormones, activity and food/drink that I need to keep healthy. Though I am one who tries to eat healthy stay very fit and take care of myself.. sometimes we are dealt cards at birth that we need to learn to deal with and live life as fully as possible. As the doctors were looking at my history and mentioning perplexity, I couldn't help but feel so grateful I have lived life as fully as I have.

Amidst my time there, a talk with a dear friend this morn, and the many well wishs of folks close to me... I am mindful of the precious nature of life. There are times amidst my energetic optimistic self that I face my own humanity and vulnerabilities amidst that which is held most dear. ... Yet times such as this week remind me of how deeply important those we most love are and how deeply important it is to spend time doing the things you love to do with the people you love.

Existential Questions...

At times existential questions visit in the places we hold most dear. Rilke said we must learn to love the questions; but what if it is the source of the questions we love?
