Daily Balm Monthly Collection December 2021


“To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.”― Thomas Merton

In our world, crammed with information and activity, you may feel the need for some respite. I created the Daily Balm messages to flow soothing energy and kindness into your daily round and am now gathering them into monthly collections, and this one is from December 2021.

With much love from our home to yours.

Of the old year.

What has been

And gone.

And any thought of what might be.

Time to clean the slate...
