Today is Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year. It makes me want to go for a walk in the snow that fell on our beautiful surroundings last night and drink peppermint hot cocoa.
Winter Solstice seems to me a time to reflect upon our blessings and pour out our gratitude to the magnificence of the world around us. Simply waking up to the clean and white wonderland that nature has created for us stirs my soul. There is something so wondrous about snow-capped mountains peering over you as you walk outside.
Next year, I think we'll skip work and celebrate with family sun salutations, homemade bread, and creativity.
