Shining Lights on my Walk



Lately, I have been waiting to walk until just before dark; right when the Christmas lights are scheduled to come on all around my neighborhood.

It is peaceful walking in the snow, with the lights shining and casting reflections.

The soft glow lights up the darkness and I no longer think of my many to do lists, but enjoy the calm and the beauty of the lights around every corner.

It is cold and snowy, but I bundle up and enjoy the crunch of the snow under my boots and the chilly air on my face. There is a fire and a hot cup of tea waiting for me at home and any holiday stress I may have been feeling, just melts away. Soon the magic of these Christmas lights will be gone for another year, but for now, I enjoy the peacefulness they bring.

Happy Wednesday!
