I am in the thick of life - the full to bursting middle. The no-bad-news precarious perch. I intend to dive in and bask in this glorious moment. Knowing:
At home I have a neighbor on one side who is celebrating her first Christmas on this Earth and a neighbor on the other who is celebrating her last. I am literally and figuratively sandwiched between these two precious souls and the beauty and brevity of it all will not be lost on me.
Our days are numbered, certainly. Our moments are gifts. The years our hearts break a hundred tiny times the same as the years they swell.
I pray you feel the warmth of connection, the grounding of true meaning, and a stirring depth of love this season. I hope you get more than you need. And give even more back to those within your ever-expanding reach.
May we all find a deep and mysterious well of generosity within us that we cannot explain by any other name than God within us. Among us. With us.
If you’re into giving gifts that can’t be found at the mall, Golden Rule and Arlee Park are for you. We’ve got the art and small batch goodies and @arlee_park has all the curated vintage treasures. Make sure to stop into the shop and head upstairs while we’re still lucky enough to call ourselves home to #arleeXgolden
SATURDAY: come hang with us at the @witanddelight_@studio125mpls Holiday Market from 11-4. A handful of local greats will be in attendance. And who doesn’t want to exist in this gorgeous space?
Of course the shop will be open as well (10-5). And @arlee_park will be in three places at once. Because magic.
