My Touchy Feely Christmas Message
Was just thinking back to an Ideas on CBC episode that I heard over a year ago. Whoever was speaking was talking about how every major religion begins with the welcoming of a stranger. That's it. When I heard it, it blew my mind. I thought, that's the gold standard of how we are doing as human beings in this world.
I'm grateful to live in a town where there really is so much generosity. I walked into the farmers market and the first thing I saw was a table of people collecting donations for the Syrian refugee families that will be arriving here. So many people doing good things.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Whatever. Here's to a welcoming and generous new year.
Lots of Love. Anna (Hope I won't regret this post in the morning.)
