Our Spirit Sunday focus at Marilu.com is more on the part of our lives that is not physical – not tied to food or exercise, but to our thoughts and feelings and a sense of interconnections.
Today the word “spirit” brings a different image to mind – ghosts! We remember the trauma of wanting to be a ghost for Halloween one year and realizing that there was not a single white sheet in the house. Every sheet was either striped or floral. Of course, it was a last-minute idea, and there was no time to run to the store. (We ended up as a gypsy with the best earrings ever – hot pink blown glass balls. It was a great costume, and we’re still begging mom for the earrings.)
Think about your favorite Halloween memories. Share them with family and friends. Who had the scariest Halloween? The tamest? Who had the best costume? Did anyone pull any tricks? How old were you when you stopped trick-or-treating?
Have fun today. Smile and laugh. Get into the spirit of the holiday by dressing up (or at least doing fun makeup). It’s a good day to play.
