New Year Reflections: Loved Ones Around the Table

New Year Reflections:  Loved Ones Around the Table

This year has been twelve months of celebration, heartache, small pleasures and outsized worries for those we love.

As we look to 2021, I think about the lessons I will take with me:

Small moments matter.

Things don't matter, people do.

Stop and celebrate the small things.

Be grateful that you love: ideas, people, pets, your passions.  

When the business of the outside world is taken away, it is a powerful opportunity to focus on those things that matter so much - and often get swept aside in the "busy-ness" of our modern lives.

Take this day, this month and the new year to reflect with gratitude on the blessings small and large which have come your way.  For so many that are in loss, may peace be upon you as you move forward with memories and love.


Some of our loved ones get to be around our table this year, and some reside in our hearts. Give yourself grace as your move forward.

Blessings for 2021 and holiday wishes from all of us at Rustica Gift & Pottery.
