if your heart finds itself alone,
i wish you the gift of connection to all living things.
if your heart is joyful,
i wish you the gift of belief that it shall continue to hold its joy for all of your days.
if your heart is hurting,
i wish you the quiet gift of resolution.
if your heart is fearful,
i wish you the penetrating gift of courage.
if your heart is bound by shame,
i wish you the liberating gift of honor,
and if your heart is full of love,
may you continue to share it with the world.

merry christmas
