When he was small, my youngest son had a habit of filling his pockets with treasures he encountered in his daily adventures. I didn't always understand the value he saw in his chosen objects -- really, how many rocks and sticks could one boy keep? In his eyes, though, each one was beautiful and important. Life is just like that on a larger scale, isn't it? We gather up the precious bits of our experiences and save them all to learn from and enjoy later. Perhaps you'll find a little something here that you'd like to keep in your own pockets. Thanks for visiting.

But tonight I am sitting in the warm glow of the Christmas lights, and the smell of fresh-baked cookies wafts soothingly through the room. I am surrounded by people whom I love with all my heart, all of us eagerly awaiting more dear family arriving tomorrow to celebrate the holidays with us. I am reminded that I have been looking at a half-empty glass when really, my cup is overflowing. I have so much to be thankful and happy for. I'm feeling very grateful right now for the light that comes with this season of hope.
Wishing all of you a holiday season filled with peace and love and a happy heart. I'll be back in the new year!
