Our “Family Christmas” was held yesterday, the day after Christmas. The two little ones lit up the room at my sisters’ home and the rest of us just relaxed, shared a meal (and too many candies!) The weather has been unseasonably warm but that is supposed to change in the next day or so and we should see our first measurable snow. Then sleet and freezing rain.
As the new year approaches, I have abandoned the habit of wishing for a BETTER year but for the grace to appreciate whatever comes. Shortly after 2015 began I broke my shoulder/arm and still somewhat feel some limitations in other ways. We grow older, things change. Life changes.
But we can embrace life in its fullness each and every day. We may have new limits but new horizons also open up for us. Do you see these as stumbling blocks or stepping stones? I prefer to see them as the stepping stones.
Wishing all of you the very best, and thank you for being with me these many years. Happy New Year!!
