Decorations of Joy

As we all walk through the year, we will come across the new, the old and the broken, and they will be our year; it is for us to not categorise or berate ourselves for the experience of every day. As I walk the days as parent, I am constantly reminded of the inner need to strip myself of this in categorizing, of seeing what’s good or bad, right or wrong, what hurts and what doesn’t.

Every single thing that comes our way is what lights us up, gives us colour, depth and texture; it all has meaning.

I am truly thankful for the child who chose me as his mother, I am truly blessed that the self critical mind that was my main place of living, has been well and truly lit up by the arrival of this bundle of love. That now has legs like a giraffe and the wrestling skills of a gorilla.

Every single thing that comes our way is what lights us up, gives us colour, depth and texture; it all has meaning.

Love pure and simple, love from the eyes of a babe, that are the same eyes in a body growing and growing; and a love for life that is an example to us all.

Yes Christmas has become a commercial machine, but let us all claim our magical moments in the most simple of places. Our children beam pure joy. They remind us of the truth about life.

Everything has meaning, everything is equal and let us all shine this truth on our past year and let it the light the one that is to come.

Many blessings for a truly joyful Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
