As you celebrate this season, please be patient with those who are in pain. Those who are hurting in ways you can see and ways you can’t see.
This season I’ve been visiting hospitals for friends and family. The bravery, the pain, the struggle, and the triumph is all to clear on the faces. But that is at the hospital.
If I were to see them on the street, I might not realize how much pain they are in and how hard they are struggling to get through each day.
Help fill the holidays with heart by showing kindness and compassion to all that you meet. The simplest act can make a world of difference. A smile. A hug. A quick phone call telling someone you are thinking of them. That little bit of heart and connection can make the day brighter for everyone.
Happy Holidays and thank each and every one of you for being a part of this colorful journey!
Great thoughts for any time of year, but especially for this time of year when people are under such pressure to be “merry”. Sometimes, it takes some help from others. Thanks for the reminder.
Carolyn, thank you for inspiring us all, thank you for your endless colourful videos. Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you and to your family!
Sorry you have friends and family in pain. We all need to be more conscious, every day. Good reminder. xox
Great post, Carolyn! As one of the “those” we can’t wait for THE day to pass.
Imagine, if we all made just a few of these and handed them to people….the kindness we could share……this is what it is all about 🙂
Good on you, Carolyn. My very deepest wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.
I’m watching your 2015 schedule to find you near New Jersey. It could happen, right?
Very merry and thanks for the colorful journey,
Wonderful post…the TRUE spirit of the Season.
May you have a lovely Holiday Season…to you & yours!
I paint with water colors and design silk scarves. I saw one of your youtube videos and was hooked. Looking forward to more creative events. I am on Facebook under terraleepageginther.
These colorful hearts and your important words resonate with me. Thanks for the reminder.
