As I said over on Outside the Box, this will be a week without the typical posts. I'm not in the mood and I suspect neither are you. Instead, I want a week of quiet enjoyment of life's little wonders.
For instance, it's unseasonably lovely here. We went for a wonderful walk yesterday. We figured it was upwards of two miles round trip. But it was a pretty day and this is such a pretty area, it was worth the hike. We didn't really see anything exciting or unexpected. The cows were hanging out as usual. The little birds were doing their thing. It was just nice. And quiet. And we got to enjoy each other's company.
Really, that's all I need for Christmas.
What's one moment of quiet enjoyment you experienced this holiday season? If you haven't found one yet, what is a moment you're hoping for when the hurry-scurry is over?
I'll let you know when it happens. I suspect it will be late Christmas Eve, after the neighborhood rolls are delivered, after the presents are wrapped, after the family leaves once our traditional Christmas Eve dinner is done. Then I will take a moment to stand at the window and gaze out, admiring the full moon. And giving thanks for all that I have. Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Happy Holidays no matter what people celebrate.ReplyDelete
