This month has already cranked through 13 days and I have barely had a moment to sit and write for Healing Knots. That is the sign of so much today. Running everywhere, so much on our schedules, and when do we make it all stop to take the time to connect with our hearts? The people that really matter, the ones that look into our hearts and know what makes us laugh and feel loved.

Well, today, I am going to sit and sink in some of that time. With the season of gifts, decorations and holiday hustle – it is still the quiet moments with a really close friend that makes my heart feel what it needs to be full and ready to face a new week.

On December 1st, I read this and I still feel it helps make this month one filled with heartfelt celebration.  I share it with you from Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

December’s gifts- custom, ceremony, celebration, consecration- come to us wrapped up, not in tissue and ribbons, but in cherished memories.  This is the month of miracles.  The oil that burns for eight days, the royal son born in a stable, the inexplicable return of Light on the longest, darkest night of the year.  Where there is Love, there are always miracles.  And where there are miracles, there is great joy.  Gratefully we weave the golden thread of the sixth principle of Simple Abundance – Joy – into our tapestry of contentment.  At last we embrace the miracle of authenticity, changing forever how we view ourselves. 

Our daily round.  Our Dreams. Our destinies.  Days we once called common, we now call holy.

May your list be filled with Joy this December.
