My Nana's Gift

One of the things my nana and I enjoyed was exchanging gifts with a lighthouse theme.

This morning, as I was making toast, I noticed the small lighthouse she had bought me. It lights up and makes ocean noises when you walk by.

Even though she is in a new institution, and doesn't recognize me, even though she can't be with us for Christmas (she is a fall risk, from very advanced Alzheimer's), her foresight in her choice of the Lighthouse is with me now.

What a lovely symbol for finding one's way...and what comfort it gives me still.

Namaste, and Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Happy everything.
