Above All this Bustle

Above All this Bustle.

It’s early Friday morning,
and I have a day off work.

I woke up early just to soak in
some extra hours.

I could be (should be?)….
– wrapping
– baking
– shopping
– cleaning….

The list could surely go on.

But instead…
I turned on the lights of the tree,
poured a cup of coffee,
sat down and caught myself singing Silver Bells.

Remember to be kind to yourself.
Be good to you and to others.
It’s not about all the bustle.

If you sit quietly….
If you put your heart in the right place…

Above all this bustle – you’ll hear…
Silver Bells.


Cheers & Hugs,

  2. Excellent advice, Jodi! Those special Christmas moments never come when we’re bustling…they always come when we’re being still, and just soaking in the spirit of the season. I’m so glad you had the sense to start your day off this way….Merry Christmas to you and yours!
