Lots of people say Christmas is a time for giving. In that light, I thought I’d use my new deck, the After Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2016) – a Christmas present from my sweet hubbie – to ask about my best Christmas gifts.
What is the best gift I gave this Christmas – Seven of Wands
The best gift I gave was my willingness to dive into the fray. Christmas was quite hectic, with both sets of grandparents over at the same time. On top of that, the person who was supposed to help out with the boys for a few hours in the morning while I napped and cooked, got a cold. So, no help and no nap, despite being up at ridiculous ‘o’ clock, as per normal. Still, I cooked Christmas dinner, and it was delicious 😉
Later, unwrapping presents with the boys was its own kind of challenge. Mainly stopping the toddler from opening everything in sight, whether it was for him or anyone else 😀 In it all, I kept track of what was for whom, and from whom, and made sure everyone had gifts to open, drinks to sip, and snacks to eat.
What is the best gift I received this Christmas – Seven of Pentacles
Oh yes, the best gift I got was a half hour on Christmas Day to enjoy the fruits of my labours. In this case, time to unbox this delightful tarot 🙂
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas wherever and with whomever you celebrated it!
