Quiet Winter Graces

Although we have had unusually bright winter weather and dusk lingers longer in the February evening sky, we still find ourselves lighting the candles and curling up with a favorite book on the window seat or in front of the humming wood stove on a cold winters day. These are the simple gifts. I'm beginning to feel grateful for a day that stands still enough embrace. Clean kid hair with just a hint of earthiness still clinging to the ends. The confused Camilla blooming unashamed with her daring fuchsia frills, adorning our dinner table with her beauty. And the way a certain four year old ends an evening prayer with, "thank You for gwace."

Yes....thank You.
