Merry Christmas! (SWF)

After the shopping,
after the decorating,
after times of food, friendship and fun,
may you find a quiet time,
and a place that brings you comfort--
to reflect,
to rest,
to rejuvenate your spirit.

May you find yourself in Nature.

Happy Holidays, Nina. This is certainly some crazy weather we're having for late December in southern Ohio. We enjoyed some time sitting out on the deck soaking up the sun this afternoon - it almost got up to 80 degrees! I imagine you are experiencing similar weather.
