Enough.

One of the things about Christmas that annoys me is the flurry of advertising.

Retailers hawking their annoying refrain of more, more, more. 

Contentment doesn't move product.  So, much of the advertising is designed to make us feel "less than." (And here, for $19.95 we can make you more.)

As we move into January, the refrain will continue.  Switching from clothing, electronics and household goods to weight-loss and exercise products.

Sometimes, it is good to simply be, breathe in, and feel the beauty of enough. To let gratitude be the overwhelming chorus.
Because there could always have been one more present, one more dish, one more decoration...rather than letting our thoughts drift to more, we can enjoy enough. 

And you, are more than enough.
