Just this. Right now.
I hope you can take time to slow down and savor the season. Maybe you're with family, friends, or alone. No matter. Every single minute is a precious gift.
Sure, it's easy to throw out statements like that and move on. I know I do. But maybe you know someone battling cancer, like my friend Jean, or are still mourning the senseless loss of children to violence.
Reminders. Every single minute is everything and all that we have.
So my wish for you and everyone I know is this: May you be fully alive and awake to the gifts that each moment brings. May your days be merry and bright. And if you're a skier (or snowboarder) like me, maybe all your Christmases be white. :)
