Sending out a bit of softening,
extending a branch of welcoming,
breathing out the final hours of a very tired year.
I know so many of us are wondering what to shed,
what to strengthen,
what to release,
what to embrace.
I honor where you are,
glad and grateful
to have our paths cross this year.
Thank you for being here.
May the New Year bring a light
peacefulness to your soul.
