PAUSE & REFLECT As we move through this hectic holiday and the year is coming to a close, pause and take a look back. Trimming the Christmas tree with gently unwrapped trinkets and treasures is an opportunity to unwrap each ornament and to remember different times in our lives. As we hang each ornament, let go of the mistakes and sometimes messes we have made or our lives, cling fast to the moments of joy & love, learn from the path we have taken, forgive ourselves, forgive others, hang tight to our faith & hope. When the tree is trimmed & the fairy lights are lit, the life we have lived becomes a shining treasure. We each are shining stars and a new year is on it’s way !
