Welcome to GLADvent day Eighteen! Yesterday we had the word Shelter.


I’m pushed for time so I want to share very briefly that I spent the last two days, out under an unheated marquee sitting at a table writing poems, and it was cold. It made me a: extremely grateful for a warm, safe, peaceful home; and b: very aware that there are many who will not have this very basic need met, as winter continues, and that I am part of the collective that has a responsibility to see that this need is met.

And so, to the eighteenth stocking.


HOPE: “Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.

– Robert H. Schuller

Now take a moment to pause and reflect upon how Hope has shown up in your life recently. What do you do to cultivate this essential quality? Who or what inspires you to stay hopeful?


Eighteen stockings turned! 🙂 Hope to see you tomorrow for number 19.
