I just heard that this Sunday is Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. That means each day gets a little sunnier - yay! I'm grateful for the rain we're having in California but I love the sunshine and always count the days until spring is here. What are you doing this weekend? Hope its filled with the right and perfect activities for you. And, here are a few fun and inspirational links from around the web....

Besides loving the sunshine, I am also setting an intention this weekend to really focus on loving people exactly as they are. I have to remember that it's not my job to change anyone. Who we are is between us and the Universe and the choices we make.
"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." ~Thomas Merton
