material importance

This holiday season I am holding in my heart all the people who are out there desperately trying to find the right presents for their friends and loved ones.   It is a hard task we set for ourselves-- this gift buying thing.  Deep breaths.  

In the meantime I am working on holding onto a feeling of hope.

I hope for a world that is peaceful.  I hope for a world where everyone has enough.  I hope for a world where we all feel safe.  I hope for a world that places more importance on our material goods-- that allows us to buy less-- but to buy better.  I hope for a world that does not include slave and sweatshop labor.  I hope for a world that does not value money over humanity.  

That is my mantra.
