Dear Friends,

For many of us with families or other obligations, Christmastime is a bit too frenzied.  Today in your journal, I’d like you to look at the busy-ness of the season with a bit of humor, and either write a prayer or short poem which acknowledges what I call “overwealmth”:  overwhelm plus wealth/abundance.

Here is one poem that has always gotten a smile of recognition from me:

 

Sometimes

When it is all, finally,

Too much,

I climb into my car,

Roll the windows up,

And somewhere between backing out the driveway

And rounding the first corner

I let out a yell

That would topple Manhattan.

 

How do you pray?

——Margaret L. Mitchell

 

With love,

Cat
