On the tenth day of December, my solstice advent gave to me… The Star.
I was wondering when The Star would come out of the bag. And here it is on day 10. The Star is a wonderful symbol of hope and light. It’s no wonder our ancestors looked to the stars in this time of year. Many people also add a star to the top of their trees, where the light glows brightest. The star gives us wishes and we tell it our hopes and dreams and watch them to help it comes true.
The days continue to get darker and colder and I am enjoying the heat from our fireplace. Our neighbor decorates their tall evergreen with a huge star and we can see it from our living room window. It’s a reminder of how interconnected we are to one another and how hopeful I am for the world to return to a better place in the coming months.
What brings you hope in this winter season? Do you still wish upon a star? Drop me a line, I’d love to know.
