Somehow, every holiday ends up being about
I walk around my house before a holiday gathering,
cleaning and adding small touches that I know
my family and friends will appreciate when they arrive.
Their presence in my home and in my life
is what I am most grateful for.
This is a simple life that we have chosen,
without a lot of "bells and whistles" but it is full and meaningful.
It is about family and friends and shared experiences.
Wherever you are, however you celebrate,
I wish you a full measure of joy in this season of new beginnings.
