Today was a day for rest, laying down at the windows edge and looking out to a cloudless sky.
Today was a day for gentle sleeping, under soft blankets with Niah snuggled closely, allowing heavy eyes to close, deep breathes to flow out and inviting dreams to come in.
As the day turns to night we decide to head out, a quiet stroll to look at the lights in the village, a thousand fairies dancing in the trees above.
Using yarn spun and dyed by her own hands, my friends mama has knitted Niah the most beautiful hat for the winter.
soft. Natural. warm.
After Supper I pour my self a hot cup of tea.
In the distance I can hear the faint sounds of splashing fun and the tones of a nurturing Papa bathing our daughter, I take a little time for me.
Turning the pages of some of my favourite books, the inspiring words lift off the page and reach right in to my soul.
Words are a powerful thing.
'Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the whole earth revolves slowly, quietly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this actual moment is life.'
Thich Nhat Hanh
Winter Solstice is almost upon us, Winter tidings of peace, Quiet reflections and Joy.
Wishing you an enchanting week ahead as the countdown to Christmas begins.
