Dear World,

Advent comes from the Latin word adventum which means coming. This coming is a promise that there is an end to the waiting that a great gift is coming, but sometimes we don’t see much end in sight. Life can feel like one big waiting room. We wait for hearts to heal, for minds to change, for dreams to come true, for all our one big breaks. But life fills in the gaps during these waiting times, good old, sturdy, wonderful life that offers itself as a gift every morning, a little christmas everyday. I want to open the gifts given. How many miracles do I miss when I focus so much on what I don’t have yet? Perhaps it would feel a little more like Christmas morning every morning If I could only train my eyes and mind to see the impossible things that are happening everyday.

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Alice in Wonderland

Yours,

Marie
