my heart is full right now.
in fact, so full that i tried for an hour to sleep and couldn't. so full i had to get up and spend an hour writing about it.
and then, i had to hop on this little blog here and let you all know.
even though our christmas plans didn't turn out as planned. even though we missed our christmas traditions, our families, our friends. without the snow, peppermint bark and smell of evergreens.
some good news from a dear friend sent me running through some beautiful memories from the past ten years. several emails from a self appointed family member, beautiful letters from friends and family as a christmas gift (thank you all more than i can say), homemade pumpkin butter and a myriad of other small things: my heart is full of the small, small things, and i am glad.
