Oh there's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
For the holidays, you can't beat home, sweet home. Lyrics by Al Stillman
I’m sure you recognize this song as “Home for the Holidays” which was made famous in 1954 by Perry Como. I've had the tune stuck in my head all week long! Like so many songs that we hear at this time of the year, this song can fill us with nostalgia for happy times in the past. Of course, not everyone can actually go “home” for the holidays physically (and some might not even want to). Nevertheless, I invite you to join me in reflecting on what “home” means to you, especially at this time of the year. Is it family or special friends, or the cottage? Or perhaps “home” is simply a place that you carry in your heart. What do you need to do to get “home” and does it depend on others or having certain things? Whatever “home” is for you, I hope that you get to spend some
time rejuvenating in that special place over the holidays.
I want to sincerely thank you for all of your support during this past, unique pandemic year! And in case you are wondering, there are still a few openings for appointments at Time for Healing in December. Just be sure to book in advance!
Blessings of the season to you and yours!
