While my family showers and dresses in preparation for a country walk (albeit a cold one!) with our furry members, I am basking in the afterglow of another Christmas morning. Coffee, stockings, and opening gifts with a glass of bubbly is our family tradition.
This is not an easy time of year for everyone. It's the time of year where we tend to reflect and it's the annual time stamp for many … we think about what has happened this past year, relationships made or maybe lost, loved ones that may no longer be present, hard times and happy times. All packaged into another year gone, another year older.
But the energy and the spirit of today is palpable. At least, it is for me. There's a special beauty that covers everything on this day. I'm together with my family and that, quite simply, is awesome.
Wherever you are today, I wish you peace, joy and the ability to stand and bask in the glory that is Christmas.
See you in 2014.
