Merry and Bright
We are enjoying ourselves and studying the effects of sugar on our toddler.
With the final presents wrapped and everything on course for our celebration, I found I have a moment to wish a Merry Christmas to you and your families. Thank you for all the love and knowledge you share here online and beyond.
Above is a photo of my first sewn ornament. Age 9 I'd guess, made from someone's scraps, with a patient and encouraging guide. I find myself reflecting on the Christmas of my childhood and the changes since then. Now I am the conductor of dinner, the filler of stockings, the tiptoer in the night. My heart is full.
