‘Tis the Season to be Merry and Bright in Berlin Heights, Ohio..…Right?.............
I’m having trouble finding the Merry this Christmas Season. I am a worrier….
Worry is a pointless, time-wasting, energy sapping endeavor…..I know this. I know how to tell you not to worry, I know all the right things to say. But, I have trouble applying those same principles to myself. I often worry about things that I have no control over….none….zero….and yet I do. It’s like telling a clock not to tick. Like I really believe all my worrying can change an outcome.
I know I am not that powerful.
But, even though the Merry of the Season sometimes seems to be missing, I know where to find the Bright.
It is in the sun dappled trees just after dawn, it is in the moon rising over the farm.
Bright is the sound of delight and laughter of my grandchildren.
Bright is in the presence of those that cross my path every day. It is in the gift of Family.
Bright is the meaning of the Christmas Season and the countless blessings that are mine every day.
Bright….that is what brings me back to Center. And, I don’t have to look far. Bright is what grounds me and gives meaning to my life. Bright was here all along. Right here in Berlin Heights, OH
It’s time to put the worry away. I’ve found the Bright, now it’s time to get Merry.
