On New Year’s day I was cleaning up my kitchen after lunch and I asked my girls if they wanted to finish“washing” the dishes? They love playing in the bubble water and quickly said “YES”! So I made sure it was only a few dishes and they were pretty clean already. I finished cleaning the counters and putting the groceries from our morning grocery run away. We had music playing from the Beatles as we worked. As they were playing my oldest Ella asked my youngest “would you like some words of wisdom”? My youngest: “Yes, please”. Ella: “Here’s your words of wisdom” as she was pouring some bubbles from one cup to another. This went on and on. They kept passing words of wisdom back and forth, as two sisters probably do throughout their lives. I just soaked it all up. It was the cutest thing.
It made me think for a minute: wouldn’t that be great if we could just pass on words of wisdom like that? Wouldn’t it be great if when we did pass on words of wisdom that the other person would say “Yes, please” and openly receive them?! So then I was curious and seeking my own words of wisdom I decided to get all philosophical on the topic. I searched for the lyrics to the Beatles “Let it Be”. So for 2012, what really struck me were these lines:
“There will be an answer, let it be.”
“And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be”
Happy New Year 2012, I hope it brings the words of wisdom you’ve been searching for.
Shine until tomorrow!
