Most of us will be home this holiday season; our gatherings smaller, quieter and more intimate as we limit guests to family or a few close friends.
While we all might be feeling some anxiety, this is also an opportunity to focus on our home environments. Home is where we can ground ourselves to battle the uncertainty of these times.
We can provide comfort by lighting a fire, preparing a warm meal, or setting out a tray full of snacks and treats for ourselves or our guests. A warm blanket thrown over a sofa or chair to cozy-up and watch a movie or read makes all the difference. We can set a table with puzzles and game boards to add merriment, creating time and space to just relax and enjoy each other.
Whatever you decide to do, I hope you and yours will find joy and comfort in each other and in your homes. Here are some images to inspire you to spruce up your surroundings while you hunker down.
Wishing you many blessings this holiday season, next year and always!
