Giving…and more giving

Published by Lydia Richmond on

‘Tis the season of giving

Giving love and joy

Giving peace and blessings

‘Tis the season of remembering

Remembering love

Remembering those who are lost

‘Tis the season of joy

Joy in the wonder of children

Joy from the lights, sounds, smells

‘Tis the season of forgetting

Forgetting pain

Forgetting loss

Yes, ’tis the season of giving

and more giving

A chance to love beyond ourselves

perhaps create new traditions of giving

‘Tis the season

This is just lovely, Lydia! It definitely IS the season!

So beautifully put, and we do tend to forget that part of giving is forgetting the pain and difficulties so we’re free to give.
