we’ve had a fun and crazy first weekend of december to get the holiday party-going started (a really, really fun co-ed shower) but now, well now is the time to be still.
i’ve been slowly reading mitten strings for god: reflections for mothers in a hurry by katrina kenison. it’s one of those books that you just need to keep on the bedside table to remind you of what’s important. the essay that most touched me is on peace where she says, “In stillness, we find our peace. Knowing peace at home, we bring peace into the world.”
brooke from inchmark echoed the same idea with her idea to take the first week of december to stay in and talk about the real meaning of the season. since all our gifts are bought and wrapped this will be an easy one for us to do. hope you enjoy your week!
