When we look at what is required for survival, there are some essentials that we all need. And then, there’s the personal items. The want-y things. The stuff that maybe not everyone values in the same way that we do.
Today’s message is a bit of a reflection for us. We are being asked (at this time of year) to examine what we can and cannot live without. Just, ya know, take a look.
Luxury and Basic
For me, it’s not really items, it’s very much about my family. But also, solitary time. I require moments together with loved ones, followed by hours on my own.
Some of us have hobbies or crafts or books (writing and reading). Those are sanity saving and soul enriching necessaries. Others, I hear, must spend time moving around vigorously.
The point is, what WE need may not be the same as what our neighbor feels is a basic essential. It’s not our place to judge. Merely to acknowledge, and be honest.
If we see someone who is “doing it wrong” this holiday (whatever holiday that is celebrated, or even not), let them have their perceived pleasure. We’ll all hope every item and tradition of theirs is as meaningful and festive as our own.
Within our regular rotation around the card altar, we have a reminder of another bit of importance in our lives. Now THIS is a priority for everyone.
“St Christopher ~ Safe Travel
This card signals a safe passage and lets you know that St Christopher is by the side of the one who is traveling at this time. This trip is blessed by the angels, who will ensure that all the details are taken care of. The transportation, luggage, meals, and accommodations are being overseen by Heaven, so the way is clear for an enjoyable trip.
This can also be a message that it’s time for you to take a trip. Have you been hankering for a relaxing vacation? Is there a place that you’re drawn to for research or business purposes? Is there a loved on who you’d like to visit. If so, this card is a validation that it’s time to set the plan in motion“

I’m exhausted. However, being tired-and-not-the-boss, is vastly different from being stressed-and-in-charge. One more night, then I’m probably done. What the rest of the crew does is no longer my concern.
