Let There Be Light...and a Chorus of Giggles and a Shimmering Glass of Wine

This year, our tree can only have lights due to the overabundance of Fresh Cats in this house.  All four of said Fresh Cats range in age from 6 months to not even 3 years.  And two of them in particular (I won't name names...Tuppy and Lilly) love to insert themselves inside the tree!

Every morning, Tuppy, Toby, Lilly, and Daisy are just Happy and Excited to Be Alive!  The joy with which they approach each day is infectious.

As it should be.  Though there has been sadness in our lives recently, it never ceases to amaze me how abundant Joy and Love and Beauty is, and how it works to assert its presence even in the midst of darkness.

And so we come to Christmas Eve.

Tonight, Marcy and I will attend Midnight Mass at the Cathedral.  A Mass of candle light and song and great ritual.  A Mass signifying the end of the dark season and the beginning of the light.  A Mass to remind us that there is so much Love in the here and now that nothing, not even death, is greater.

What better reason to celebrate?

May all of you have Great Love in your Lives; May all of you be Showered in Healing Light.

May your Hearts be wide open to that which you most need.
