Amid the falling snow my heart grows. The quieting skies settle my fears as the blanket grows deeper. A white cover hiding flaws, such as outdoor duties that managed to slip the radar or the weed and flower that have become undistinguishable, looking both the same. Time stands still as home takes on a little more of a haven and family are welcomed in by the fires while nurturing gains a new strength. It’s time to hunker down, meditate and glow. Gratitude for all around me swells, accepting the laughter spilling inside our doors this being preceded by a flurry of snowballs.
We have a forest of snowmen interlaced with angels all over the lawns. Mittens and boots gain heft and weight around the coat hooks. Cookies and chocolate have the sirens’ call to no particular age.
This is my Holiday Card, my End of the Year Celebration. Heaven’s little favor to me. May the Holidays find you with warmth and happiness, and many snowy returns.~written by A Women’s Place~
