On the first day back home I told John all about the Balinese offerings – about how I wanted to create a little alter in our dining room and begin our little version of the same practice. I love the idea of using it as a sweet, beautiful tool to teach True all about blessings, intention, and gratitude. Later in the day John went out into our yard, gathered up a big leaf, a couple of sticks and pretty petals. He came back in and surprised me with our first offering – we lit some Balinese incense and chuckled a little bit at ourselves. My heart leapt.
I learned so much in Bali and this practice of simple connection, gratitude, and intention was an important one.

I love it that your husband supports you and listens intentionally.
What a beautiful gesture and a way to transition back to being at home!
Thank you so much for this reminder about gratitude and simplicity! Little things add up to big world changes, right? Little offerings can only lead to big things, too.
