Aha Moments: A Few Reflections on Wellness
Children often ask each other, “What did you get for Christmas?” Many are eager to share the contents of umpteen packages under the tree displaying their names. Others may reveal their fantasy list as actual items received or how much mac ‘n cheese or slices of cake they ate.
The most thoughtful, however, realize that the holiday season is about more than the wrapped presents, feasting and excess. Giving and receiving those precious unwrapped and unexpected gifts that can’t be bought represent the real magic of Christmas.
The big red bow of the season is love, gratitude and presence. Being present to the most brilliant gems of life: love, peace, joy, health, Truth, family, friends, warm memories, beauty in nature, and God expressing through us.
What did I get this joyous Noel? Many of the things I’ve been praying for and some delightful surprises…
- The fluffy first snow of the season blanketing the neighborhood
- A spectacular live theatre performance with Sistah Cuz
- Teatime and dinner dates with devoted friends
- A talented, generous and supportive professional team
- Excellent health, abundance and peace of mind
- Exquisite hand-carved soap flowers from Thailand
- Receiving great news that after six weeks in intensive care, a dear friend is no longer on a feeding tube and ventilator
- An opportunity to share my gifts and kindness with those I meet
What did you get for Christmas? Return the blessing today! Allow the miracle-working power of the Christ Spirit to be reborn in you, and be grateful for permitting this perfect idea to sustain you and others each day of the coming year.
