Start 2018 with a winter reflection

Start 2018 with a winter reflection

January is the time of year when we typically make huge sweeping resolutions for great changes we plan to make, but this January, I invite you to take the pressure off of yourself and simply join me for some reflecting time.

Greetings of the Season

Greetings of the Season

There is so much to be thankful for at this time of year. The pattern left by the blowing wet snow that hardens overnight. The ice patterns on the window of my car as I sit shivering and waiting for it to clear. The beauty of the sunrise and the sunset. The blue of the sky. The familiar scent of a wood fire that warms my hands and comforts my soul. It's all there.

I just realized today how lucky I am that my father did not serve on active duty. He and my uncle (who served in the Navy and who eventually married my Dad's sister) had just volunteered to go to Japan when the war ended. So many men came home from both Great Wars and were never the same.
