Quiet Time

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

Hope you find your quiet time Simone. I think it would be a good idea for all of us to do the same, it can be a bit manic at this time of year!

Was hoping for some quite time today, but that's not going to happen now.

At this time of year when things can get so busy it is good to take some time out for reflection and revisit some cherished memories. Take carexx
