In the palm of our hand

We hold small offerings and large that might change the life of another.

A gentle touch. A heart-connected smile. The willingness to sit and listen as if the speaker had the single most important message for us.

A hand reached out to offer support. A connection made. 

A gift crafted from our hands with love.

An offering of a gift, or coin. A cup of tea. 

December is for some joy and delight, for others isolation and despair. It is a time of excess, and absence.

In the palm of our hand we can bring light. A gift more precious and enduring than a thousand items purchased.

Open your hand, knowing that no matter what your circumstance, you have an offering to make that will make the difference.
