Today’s bliss…a story for the ages.
Christmas already seems like a week ago. But today was another sort of gift we wrapped up – our official Star Wars movie day.
Just like being a child again, with big eyes watching a big screen, this movie seemed to be the grand finale of the holiday. Much like a family gathering, the movie met us with both new characters and old acquaintances to remember all over again.
And that has me thinking about Stories. The beginning, middle and end that wrap us all together. The stories of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and the hopes for Christmas future. Echoing with the time that we did this, that, and do you remember when? Memories in the making. Ones that speed by way too fast.
Just like the great Story that we saw play out on the big screen today. There were no lulls, no sticking points, no weird plot lines, just pure anticipation, reaction, and glimpses of what might come next but not wanting to get there too soon. Otherwise known as being Present.
Maybe the best gift of all.
Speaking of being Present, I’m trying to remain focused on the Bliss of this year. But I know all too well a New Year is to arrive all too soon. So, tomorrow, I will share my new Promise. Maybe you too will want to come along too?
