I happened onto this website the other day. It’s one of those lovely places that makes you smile – and makes me wish I had more decorating talent. This picture is from the website, The White Buffalo Styling Company. Isn’t that a great name?
Scattered among the pictures were the website owner’s thoughts. Things that mattered to her. They aren’t the same things that matter to me, of course. Each person has a different list of blessings or priorities in her life.
I think we each matter. Each one of us. From the woman in New York to the girl in San Francisco to the man in Louisiana. People with daily lives that are simply lived, not splashed across the pages of the latest online celebrity site. We all matter.
I’m constantly surprised at the diversity of life. In the same token, I’m always warmed by how similar we are sometimes.
So, as we enter this holiday season – let me wish for you the following: that you are surrounded by the things that matter in your life. That they bring you pleasure and peace. That the people you choose to love surround you with their physical presence or their loving memories.
That matters, too.
