Our lights and Internet service are back. I’ll have a longer post about all our adventures in a little while, but I need to Photoshop some images first, so for now, I’ll just leave you with a belated 10 on Tuesday. This week’s topic: 10 Things You Want for Christmas.

Materialism is against my religion, and I pretty much have everything I want anyway (well, everything except a kitten, which Ron still refuses to let me have), but what I really want for Christmas is to be a better healer … so I think I’ll just flip this topic on its ear and make a list of 10 spiritual qualities I need to cultivate a little more in order to accomplish that:

1. Patience
2. Humility
3. Love
4. Gratitude
5. Meekness
6. Quietude
7. Perseverance (I learned something about this in training for a marathon a couple of years ago, but I’ve forgotten a lot of it)
8. Understanding
9. Calm
10. Attentiveness

See you in a little while.
