As I run here and there, knowing that the next five weeks are going to be busy with the Christmas and New Years’ holidays, I pause to take notice of the things that make life in Sonoma, beautiful and this time of year, joyful.
It’s my two cats, Martha and Sosa, sleeping together in the cold night air in their bed;
It’s the Mum flowers on my coffee table, the angel on the mantlepiece, the pumpkin spice candles all in a row, with every little thing in its loving place.
I immerse myself in the little things these days, to hear, smell, touch, feel it all. I am alive and grounded in what my close friend calls, ‘Peaceful Essence,’ the place where I appreciate all that I have.
I rest on Mother Teresa‘s wings and words today,“There are no great things, only small things with great love.”
