Silent Night

It's just after 11:00 p.m. My house is quiet except for the ticking of the dining room clock and the drone of the fan in the bedroom downstairs. It's dark except for the lights on the Christmas tree. And I feel peaceful. My husband is asleep. My girls are cozy and warm and safe in their beds. The cats are sleeping under the tree.

We have everything we need and more. I'm so thankful.

This is the life I've made for myself.

I love it.

Sit in that moment and remember it always. When you start to feel that old familiar voice putting you down, remember this feeling and let it wash over you.
