oh, christmas tree.

sometimes we go about our days with a narrow focus. we miss out on the abundant beauty all around us. be encouraged to look up. look down. look all around. find the beauty in the day. breathe it in. savor it. and then share it.

somehow, not only for christmas,
but all the long year through,
the joy that you give to others
is the joy that comes back to you;
and the more you spend in blessing
the poor and lonely and sad,
the more of your heart's possessing
returns to make you glad

-john greenleaf whittier

let us go forth, practicing random acts of kindness.
