Life is Beautiful...

-when I wake up to a world of sparkly snow and sunshine.

-with a cup of Hot Cinnamon Spice tea in a cute snowman mug.

-as my WoodWick candle crackles and sparkles in the quiet of the evening.

-on a walk through the neighborhood, breathing the fresh, cool air.

-when spending time with my family and my uncle’s family playing the crazy Xbox Kinect.

-with the infectious laughter and mirth of the choir members at our post-Christmas party.

-at the nursing home Mass when Fr. Todd spoke of how the little things do matter—the prayers of these residents can be powerful and serve a great purpose.

-when the elderly woman in front of me held her husband’s hand, sitting close to his wheelchair and assisting him.

-when a dear online friend reached out to me, sharing her heart to encourage my own.

-when a new year stretches ahead, a gift unopened of time and opportunity, with the promise of grace, hope, and mercy because of God’s presence.
