How can any of us feel we lack anything when
we have before us the stars,
the faces of those we meet,
the great sea, and so much more?
Our holiday gifts are everywhere present,
making each day holy in the original sense of something whole.
If we only have eyes to see...
Eyes full of gratitude – then each day our lives are
woven into one magnificently integrated piece or, to play with the word, one embracing peace.
_I am a few days away from what I hope will be a beloved tradition,
the 2nd annual Santa Lucia party on Saturday. I spent all last week
and part of this week decorating.
My intention is to create a space where my friends and their families can
bask in seasonal joy so magic can happen.
I know I can't possible make that so for everyone but as I began to hear
from friends who came last year being super excited about coming this year
it has already been pretty dang magical!
So on this wishcasting day Jamie asks, What do you wish to celebrate?
First, I'm wishing to completely celebrate my hubby not
being in Afghanistan or even just out of town!
He is well and truly home for the holidays as you may (or may not) know
a US military family is always on the move and someone is always deployed
for on thing or another, so him actually being home is completely worth celebrating
all by itself! He's been trying to think up 'man stuff' to do at the party...super cute!

_Next, I wish to celebrate all the people planning to grace our home this year...twice as many as last year!
I've had to hire chairs and borrow tables!
No idea where everyone will sit but I get the
distinct feeling that it will all work out and be glorious
And I wish to celebrate everyone's willingness to chip in.
Anything I've asked for someone has stepped up to say 'Yes'.
I'm so full of excitement, joy and gratitude that these are the people in my life.
There is so much more I could add to this list but I hear my son up and moving
and as part of our countdown to Christmas, he wishes to celebrate by making gingerbread cookies!
But before I go one more thing.
I wish the wonderful Jamie Ridler a very happy birthday! Thank you so much for
birthing Wishcasting Wednesday and making this community possible!

May I find a deep well of calm during stormy times
May I come to my center grounded in the unwavering belief that there is nothing to fear as long
as I put my trust in your divine mystery.
May I revel in walking the divine path that has been
created for me and endure challenges with grace and ease.
May I remember especially during times of duress that I am your instrument
and everything is in accordance with what is for my highest good.
