gifts in abundance

The gifts our children bring us will not be known until long after they have been delivered.

May we be grateful for the lessons, even before we have realised them. Accept them graciously, cherish them.

tips for a sunny day when you don't feel so sunny

If your day isn't proceeding quite as chirpily as you had planned, you could buy yourself a straw cow-person hat...

...find any remaining white items of clothing in your possession and get colourful,

...focus on Christmas baking whilst listening to Ella wishing you a swinging Christmas,

...then focus on the beautiful touches around you - like the water-colour Advents calendar which your oldest Sun hand-painted.

And if all else fails, pray for rain.
