This week is one of my most favorite times of the year.
I call it my peaceful week.
The rush of Christmas, with it's wonderful excitement, has passed.
The tingle of anticipation for a new year is just beginning.
Just now there is quiet.
Everything is still lit, bedecked, and dazzling.
But, there is a quiet contentment to it.
This is my week.
No students, no shopping, no hustle, no bustle.
Time to laugh with friends, time to play with family.
Time to read. Time to write. Time to reflect on the year just passed.
Oh. I do love this time of year.
May your week be as peaceful, my friends.
