I'm so happy you're here. Oh, I know. There have been other years where I have dreaded your arrival and maybe even cursed your name. This year, though? This year I welcome you with open arms.
You see, I'm ready for a little merry-and-bright. And we all could use some peace-on-earth-goodwill-toward-men (that's for sure).
So. December. . .
I long for your sparkle (to keep me smiling).
I await your lights (to brighten the dark spots).
I seek your wonder (to help me believe).
I need your hope (to keep me moving forward).
I wish for your joy (to add fun to my days).
I crave your peace (to blanket us all).
PS - Today's photo is a winter shot from a past year. Today it is cloudy and gloomy and rain/snowing and generally not good for photos.
