tis the time to reflect on our year at near close. the wintery snow has been such a great way to do that.. the layer of peace that falls with a snow flake allows thoughts to be noticed that otherwise may not be. though the snow is nearly gone now, my thoughts still collect as the days near darkness early and the light which shines comes from within the warmth of home. my wish to all who finds this is a very bright new year. one where we learn what we must, feel what we can, take only what we need, share the rest and love more than we knew we could. happy new year with love.
