Have yourself a merry little Christmas

My dearest blogging friends,
I wish you many blessings this holiday season and always. I couldn't let the frenzy of the holiday pass without thanking each of you for being here in this space, with me...even for a moment. I hope 2016 brings you joy in whatever you do.

Dear Mom and Dad,
Not a day goes by without thoughts of you-some good, some not so good. I know I have a bit of forgiving and "letting go" to do before my heart fully opens & I am able to recognize your presence that I eagerly seek.
I'm working on it...really I am.

Dear 2016,
Please be kind. 
The world is in such need of healing. Some days I can barely scan the headlines. 
Peace to us all

Dear Thich Nhat Hanh,
I find such comfort in your words. In your quotes. 
Living with Mindfulness is something I'll be consciously practicing in the coming year. It won't be easy...It most definitely won't be easy. Wouldn't it be something if everyone tried?

Happy (mindful living) snapping!


  1. Mindful living is a great way to live. I'm always trying to live like that with a positive way. Hope you have a wonderful christmas love.

    Lots of love,

  2. Merry Christmas Kelly - may 2016 be bright and plentiful.

    1. I wish the same for you and your family Nicki-xo

  3. Beautiful words and I love the cup!
    And yes to mindfulness and peace ... both in the global scenes and personally in the daily life ...
    I like Jon Kabat-Zinn's body scannings - When I couldn't find the CD, I googled it and found it is on the web /YouTube as well - Here's a link :
    And I wish you many beautiful caterpillars and butterflies in 2016 - just adore the transformation and your images!

  5. If only all of us cared just a little bit, the world would be such an amazing place. Here's to a hope-filled 2016.

  6. Beautiful words and thoughts! I'm a little late... but Merry Christmas :)

    1. I'm glad you came for a visit! Thank you and Happy New year!

  7. A beautiful post, Kelly! Christmas is such a whirlwind, but we are blessed and we are grateful to be able to celebrate it this year together as a family! Your reference to Thich Nhat Hanh made me smile, for he founded the Monastery in my neck of the woods. A beautiful, peaceful place with Love and smiles in abundance:) Best Wishes to you and yours for a HAPPY and HEALTHY 2016. Aloha!

  8. Wishing you a really wonderful 2016 Kelly, filled with peace and hope.
