In this season, warmth is returning to my heart. My soul is breaking the walls. I’m enjoying the ordinary, making it extraordinary. I’m relishing victories. Accepting defeat. I’m riding the waves of emotion instead of letting them consume me. I’m taking the pleasure along with the pain. I’m aware that both can coexist. I’m writing each Christmas card with joy unspeakable. My mailbox opens a whole new world each day. It’s communication I treasure much like this blog, but in a different way. I look at my Christmas tree much like life. A little shiny, a little complicated, but a whole lot to unwrap. May your day be blessed, and your countenance find a reason to smile.
