This past weekend was a much-needed, enervating family gathering. Delicious food was eaten, gifts exchanged and there was much laughter and merry mayhem. Gladsome times!!
Of course, again I was remiss in my photo-taking! Terrible of me, as I would love to have gotten a nice group picture. I must have been having too good a time to think about my camera.
I do want to share something though, a picture taken after the fact.
My daughter gave me a special present. A book, of course. It represents a favorite subject shared by both her and me. Our love for Tolkien and all things Hobbit.
What I wanted to share, though, is the inscription my daughter wrote to me in the book. It is very moving and just makes me so happy. I don't think she will mind if I share it.
In other news, it is friggin' cold! Our temps have dropped down into ridiculous numbers, and we are getting a lot of snow. Yes, I know it is January and that it is winter. And I live in a northern clime. But I would still like to complain, if you don't mind. Being Wiccan I rejoice in all Seasons, taking each day as a Gift from Nature and the Goddess. Thank you, Mother Earth for the gift. Perhaps a bit less gifting would be also gratitude-inducing.
All for now. Bright Blessings from Robin.
