With the Thanksgiving Feast and Festivities behind, leftovers aplenty for a few days, house not a wreck, kids calm, and most of my Christmas shopping done, I find myself in a sweet spot. I can breathe.
Rather than churning chaotically, I find words settling in my mind like a downy blanket over a calmly sleeping body. Peace.
I'm not going to push it by trying to conjure up an interesting blog post today. Embracing the temporary stillness, the contentment seems the better path.
So, yeah, here's to you, readers, whatever your frame of mind. May this transition from one holiday to the next find you recovering from energy spent, hopeful for joy, love, and goodness in the weeks to come.
Orange juice, yogurt, cacao nibs, goji berries, and a partridge in a pear tree.
