So I’ve had just over 24 hours of true holiday time on my own. Nothing was open, there was no where to go and nothing that needed doing since my culinarily gifted sister has volunteered to cook Christmas Dinner tonight. I got more creative work done in those 24 hours and feel more rested and peaceful and connected with the possibility in my own dreams than I have in months. I’m so grateful for this quiet time this year. I just wanted to connect with that before the kids come home and their energy and delightful presences fill the house again. More to be grateful for there for sure. And it is different.
