Posts Tagged ‘Christmas and holiday season’

With all of life there is joy and sadness- often living side by side. One of our main team members here at the Essential Feminine Company had this light and dark experience this week. Judie Fouchaux has been a pillar in our company  and she is experiencing a major hassle in the middle of  the holiday season.  (Read her poem below—it is wonderful!).

One thing I know about Judie is that she is a rock and a pillar and will always make full use of where light and dark meet. We should all do the same ….Read her poem –written in the midst of her home being flooded this week.

Happy Holidays and that you Judie for being you and for all you do.

As we approach the Winter Solstice –a true time of winter reflection we have a chance to notice the light and dark in our lives.

The Week Before Christmas

‘Twas the week before Christmas with much to be done

There’s cooking and baking and oh so much fun.

There’s work as well so early I go

Out into the day but not into snow.

And then work comes to an end and I’m headed home

Where for an hour or so I’ll be alone.

Time to bake cookies just one little batch

So I rush to the door and turn open the latch.

But what do I hear as I open the door –

The sound of a loud “Plunk” followed by more.

I rush to the kitchen and look in the sink

But it’s not the faucet left on as I think

It comes from the ceiling and what’s more

There’s an inch of water all over the floor.

I rush to the stairs and up them I dash

Race through the bedroom to bath – splish, splash.

I turn off the faucet and pick up the rugs

Full of water they’re thrown in the tub.

Throw down more towels so sop up the mess

Get on the phone and call Dann in duress.

Down to the kitchen to open deck door,

Frantically sweeping the tide from the floor.

Dann arrives and asks what to do.

I tell him call Eliot to get us out of this stew.

Call him he does and then Eliot comes

Shortly thereafter the whole house hums.

Fire in the fireplace, heaters galore

Blowers and suckers all over the floor.

Four hours later the best has been done

When we dry out we’ll get back to the fun.

The Essential Feminine Company has some very exciting events coming up.

The Essential Feminine Living Room is a complimentary monthly webinar, which takes place on the 4th of each month.

It is a perfect opportunity for women who want to look more closely at key issues that affect their day-to-day success, happiness and overall well-being in a highly supportive environment. Join today to experience an hour of a highly supportive and safe environment.

Each month, we cover topics that address women’s pertinent needs in business and life. Women from all over the world exchange ideas and support.

In the Living Room, mysteries unfold and profound learning occurs. You never know who you will meet and where the journey will take you.

The topic of this month’s Living Room is The Power of Gratitude – The Golden Key to Success that Transforms your Life, featuring special guest Patti Hawn.

It will take place on November 23 at 12 pm – 1:30 p.m. PST. Register today.

My dear friend Patti Hawn, who has joined us here at TEF over the past couple of years, really understands the power of gratitude as she has lived a life of many challenges and been a prime example of someone who has learned how to turn challenges into opportunities.

The time in which we live requires us to look for light when there seems to be only darkness.

Gratitude is one of the universal spiritual principles that, when practiced daily, transforms our lives and the lives of those we touch.

Don’t miss the chance to find more gratitude in your life. Join us in this month’s Living Room.

On November 23, Patti Hawn and I will look at the power of gratitude and share specific practices and ways to attract more harmony, peace of mind and happiness into your life. Sign up for November and December’s Living Room Here!

This Living Room will be the perfect beginning to your holiday season.
