…two turtle doves.
While these too were most likely part of the holiday feasting, the fact that in Medieval times turtle doves were also often given as gifts and kept as pets. They are a symbol of love.
In the rush of things during this time we forget that love is what it is all about. No matter the religious connotations or lack there of, the basic premiss of our traditional Christmas is love.
Now, it needs to start with you. Love yourself and you will have plenty to share. It is amazing how that works. And by loving yourself you can avoid the over indulgences of foods that get us into a bind. You can guide yourself away from the stresses and take some time to love yourself. No matter what ends up under the tree, you will be happy, because you first loved…YOU.
Out of your well being will pour all the love you want to embellish onto those around you. Share a quite moment with a special person, no gifts, no cards, just giving of yourself. It is the most wonderful gift you can give. You might even find that you can share it with strangers as well.
What are some ways that you love yourself and those around you?
