Before the gaiety of the season kicks in, I just want some quiet time. Time to sit and reflect on the past year, time to take walks out in nature away from bustling, eager shoppers, time to be thankful for the past 12 months.
I will quietly work on my craft projects, and quietly work alongside my fellow workers at the vineyard. I will quietly make mince pies and quietly sample them.
I will quietly remember the laughs that I shared with a friend who now resides in a hospice. I will quietly sob.
I will quietly go about my everyday duties and quietly give thanks for all that is good in my life.
Wishing all of you some time for quiet reflection amongst the mayhem and merriment of the season. x
