I can already feel it in everyone I’ve been able to talk with; here comes the holiday rush.
Fortunately, not for the Taira’s. The last 4 years has challenged and blessed me to "slow flow" living. It helps that it’s doctors’ orders.
I love it when I’m in center of that flow. Yet, I frustrate myself when I step out of it.

In celebrating the old traditions, I pray for the mindfulness to breathe in each moment and embrace the ones I love and who love me finding gratefulness for it all.

We’re also creating new sustainable traditions this year.
Our first year in vegan/vegetarian foods.
Our first year to choose the few gatherings that will fill and uplift us.
Our first year to simplify the holidays, as much as possible, leaving room for enjoying each other to the fullest.
We still have 29 days to discover and celebrate more firsts. How exciting!
Every year gets better and better.
This year, I’m finding more and more of God in me, in those around me, and in all of you. It’s so amazing.
Everyday, I see more of Him and discover more of His amazing love.
His compassion in me for myself, others, and every living creature takes me on adventures I could have never imagined.
|Learning to stop and take notice|
I pray this holiday season, for each one of us to find fulfillment in all the creative and unexpected ways He has specially chosen for each one of us.
I pray we’ll take it with us through each day and the year ahead.
