Holding My Loves Close

windows at Macy's, Herald Square

I just picked up a sick little girl from school, and so my dive into family time begins even earlier than planned.  We still have a birthday to celebrate and sugar cookies to bake, but I am happy for some time to sit with my girl and make sure the love doesn't get lost in the shuffle.  This time of year, these pockets of peace are more important to me than ever.

I am so happy to be quiet, to bake cinnamon rolls and wash dishes in a deep tub of warm, bubbly water.  I am holding my loves close and feeling so thankful for every one of them.  For the way each presence is a gift, every moment together a treasure.

May you find a pocket of peace today, as well.
