Ripples

I must most humbly apologise for the gap in posts...

I have been caught up in an ever increasing whirlwind of organisation and smiles.

Have you ever heard of the ripple effect ?

You throw a tiny pebble into a still lake. The resulting ripples just expand and grow and make the most incredibly beautiful mosaic of circles all around.

My life has been like that for the last week.

A seed of an idea, a concept. One word in a couple directions with wonderful and surprising results, and now hundreds (literally) of tiny ripples are spreading out around the pond in to which I threw the pebble.

It is just so beautiful.

So simple.

And so what Christmas is really about - for me.

People are sharing. People are giving. People are coming forward to share and to feel the joy of spending time together...

I am blown away by the kindness, the excitement, the giving, the sharing and the sheer level of togetherness my pebble has created.

And...

Maybe it will keep on spreading far further than I can reach... Wouldn't that be something...

If everyone did just one tiny kind thing, something unexpected, imagine the ripples...
