The tree is lit. Christmas music is playing. Yummy smelling potpourri is simmering on the stove. I’m sipping my morning coffee. It’s the day before Christmas & I’m reflecting on ALL these little things that help bring Christmas to life in my home & my heart.
In spite of all the external challenges we face, Christmas still brings us the opportunity to turn inward. To REFLECT. It’s All the little things that I’m calling forward this year more than ever. In the words of Hamilton Wright Mable “BLESSED is the Season Which Engages the WHOLE WORLD in a CONSPIRACY of LOVE.”
