bring your light

DSC_1103

We’ve got company coming.

I stop the doing to sit for a moment, to breathe, to let the rest absorb the work.  I stand again and labor on.

Lighting the candles.  Nursing the babe.  Preparing the beds, the meals, the gifts.  Preparing the way.

This is the stuff Joy is made of.
