making spirits bright


on a day when i'm feeling a bit droopy and down,
here are just a few things
that are making my spirits bright tonight:

the warmth of our fireplace
our twinkly tree
sipping coffee late in the day for a second wind
soup in the fridge for a quick bite tonight
kicks from a certain little boy that remind me what really matters
red nail polish making matching fingers and toes pretty
taking time to read a chapter of {this book}
a white puppy curled tight at my elbow
shoveling snow under the glow of kitchen lights
lingering in the snowy dark a little longer than usual watching snowflakes float and drop
sealing christmas cards in silence
pondering the season for more than a moment

what's making your spirits bright tonight?
