This whole blog is very spur of moment, seat of my pants…a wing and a prayer. Some funny, some painful, but altogether real life. Today I was out shopping, and was just struck by how little eye contact women use with each other. I have felt like no matter where I am this holiday season, that I am supposed to make eye contact and say…Merry Christmas. It’s harder than it sounds. It’s brings vulnerability, and most of us don’t want that. Especially when we are out and about with our made up faces, and skinny, Ive got it all together, jeans on. Give it a try. Look another woman in the eye, smile, and say Merry Christmas. That is step one. Here is step two…a little harder. Bless a woman’s spirit sometime during this season. Everyone of us is spirit inside, some know it, and some don’t. Let YOUR spirit lead you to the woman that you should bless. She might be older, or younger than you. She might be prettier than you…this makes it more difficult, and more rewarding (for you). She might be your daughter, or your mother, maybe even your sister. You might not know her at all….you can still bless her. It can be face to face, although uncomfortable, you will never regret this choice. It might be on facebook , or by text….this is the 21st century ! God created all of her parts and pieces , she is beautifully made, and most likely needs to know it. Bless her spirit by telling her. The gift is in how much YOU will be blessed in return. Your spirit woman will thank you.

Beautifully written Girl!!! I needed this blessing today…thank you!
I noticed this same thing in the airport on Monday, how few people even smile back at you, and how often I walk around with my “concentrating” face on just trying get from point A to point B on time. But smiling usually makes the journey better and it’s such a pleasant surprise when someone smiles back. 🙂 By the way, Merry Christmas to you!
