Stones for Patience

Let’s face it; the holidays can be a stressful time for everyone. There seems to be so much to do, so much to buy, so many people to see, so much to cook, so much to wrap, so much to clean… The list really can seem never ending. And we all know that the longer your to-do list is, the longer each task seems to take! This feeling can be overwhelming, and we obviously don’t have time to feel overwhelmed. Sometimes these feelings cause us to take our frustrations out on others, and that is perhaps the most upsetting consequence during a time of year when we are supposed to be spreading joy and cheer.

Well, of course we had to put together a list of stones that might help. So, the next time you feel like snapping at your mother-in-law or griping at your barista, perhaps reach into your pocket and give one or a few of these stones a squeeze instead. Remember, this time of year is fleeting, which may be making you feel rushed, but the reality is, no one will remember the imperfections in a month, but they will remember your warm smile, calming presence, and kind words.
