As 2011 draws to a close, my thoughts turn to angels.
Snow angels, to be specific.
I am grateful today for the opportunity to squeeze in one last angel for the year.
Plopping down onto the cold, smooth ice of the lake, laying on a small cushion of snow, my arms and legs gliding back and forth in perfect snow angel formation, I reconnect with the magic of childlike wonder that exists in me -- in all of us. The place I try to remember to live my life from each and every moment of each and every day.
Not an easy task. But not so hard either. Not really.
We just have to remember.
So, I leave you tonight with a wish for the New Year...that we remember this precious place in ourselves. That we remember our own divinity and that of those around us. That we remember that this life isn't about all of the physical trappings...but about love. And joy. And wonder.
And snow angels.
Happy 2012 to one and all! See you in the New Year. :)
