Happy Solstice!

The winter solstice is always bittersweet for me. Most people celebrate the return of the light, but that is what makes me sad. For me, the winter solstice is a day to appreciate the longest night of the year--and I do. I love the brief part of the year when it gets light later in the morning and dark in the late afternoon. We gain daylight quickly here and by summer, we will have just a few hours of darkness each night. I will enjoy the dark while it lasts!

I hope this is a beautiful day in your part of the world.

Today it rained lightly until almost 11:00 am and then the sun started trying to break through the clouds. It's 1:00 and the sun is still hiding. Even so, it's a beautiful day, but then I think all days are beautiful!

That's a good way to look at it, Vicki! All days are beautiful--I will remember that!
