The holiday season isn't always happy and bright. Many of us miss loved ones, or traditions from years past. If that's you this year, be gentle with yourself. Take time out when you need it, even if the house is full of people and you're the designated hostess (or driver) and you have three things in the oven all at once.
Stillness is a gift. Simplicity is a gift. Serenity is a gift.
Take ten minutes today for yourself, and just ... breathe.
