December Days

little shoeshow is it that letting go
of what I wanted to make me happy
shows me the happiness I sought?

us laughing togethersubtract:
pressure to find the right gifts
(rushing, stressing… frustrating),
all for more stuff. more distractions.

uncertain faceadd:

her eating orangespound upon pound of oranges to eat,

chopped tomatoes for chilifresh produce to savor,

hans brinker silver skates, tornbooks to read, and patience to not mind when they’re torn,

blocks with Mamablocks to stack,

growly gigglesgrowls to giggle about,

she kneads doughdough to knead and bake,


and everything else that has brought us joy this season…

oranges with cards

It is the most wonderful time of the year, after all.
Merry Christmas!
