"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

winter solstice...

...may the beauty of God's glory find it's way into our hearts and light up this dark, sad, lonely, defeated world.   Enjoy your weekend, take some time to reflect on each other's beauty.


  1. sometimes it does seem like a dark,sad, lonely , defeated world....
    we all need to find a way to Rise Above
    and I believe, no matter HOW HARD...and holy hell, sometimes it is hard
    we must not be defeated.
    I hope you have a lovely Christmas.
    I hope we all find that "happy place" inside each of us.

  2. I hope you have a good weekend too! I will be wrapping lots of presents tomorrow and on Sunday I will be heading to my cousin, Maia's house for dinner as well as the kids will open the gifts I have gotten for them.

  5. We are leaving this am for CA and hopefully don't get tied up in the snow on the pass. Can't wait to see the grands and all of us will be together this year to celebrate.

    Thank you for always being so honest and inspirational in your writing and not being afraid to step out of the box and share how you feel. You have no idea how much your words have helped me, especially over this last year.

    Happy Christmas to you and your family. xoxo

  6. Hope you have a good weekend and also a special Christmas week with your family.
    Happy Holidays
