The other part of "musing garland" (still thinking through what to call it)... There are 6 more days after the initial 25 that count up to Christmas day. The barrier between the first 25 tabs and the next 6 reads "Hope 2011".
This week we've continued the habit of asking a daily question, usually around the dinner table. All of the 6 questions are about the year ahead. Something we'd like to do as a family. Something we are hopeful for.
Again, I love how it is simple, but requires a bit of thought. I love that it helps us think about the year ahead, in a dreaming sort of way, as we've just finished debriefing the year almost gone. It puts a bit of perspective on our days.
I am anticipating the year ahead as today it is still a mystery. There is much unknown, but I am at peace and even curious as to what our days will look like.
Most likely they will continue in the same fashion. I am happy with that. Since no matter our circumstance, peace/simplicity/love can remain.
Happy new year and much hope to you!
