today:  i breathe and enjoy this little life of mine

today:  is yet another amazing day that I am thankful for as life has slowed down
want to be:  focused and disciplined to take care of me - mind, body, and spiritually
blessings:  my daughters who provide me with so much happiness
thinking:  i may just kinda sorta stumbled upon my one little word for 2016
planning:  for another year full of moments, memories, and lots of stories
writing:  little these days, but with big intentions to make it a habit again starting today!
loving:  my newly published volume #9 of my slice of life writing (thanks Mom and Dad!) 
grateful:  for my loving family, supportive friends, and health

and today {again}: i breathe and enjoy this little life of mine - and an updated purplicious blog!

I happily 
and all the holiday joys.
In less than seven days
busy with life and events 
visiting many crowded places ...

School
Tired eyes
Ice hockey
Sore throat
School holiday shop
Itchy red rash 
Crafts at the Bethlehem Market
Stomach ache
A visit to the doctor

Yep, strep throat for one.  
Waiting on the second.
Welcome, again December 
and all your germs.
(But don't plan on sticking around.)

And just like that ... December arrives.


The decorations were retrieved from storage. Bins and boxes full of red and silver and sparkling lights.  The tree is standing tall and the mantle is dressed.  Little touches of the holiday sprinkled around the house.

Ella, our little elf, arrived in style today.  She arrived with a letter from Santa reminding our girls the reason for this season: to be kind to all, especially your sister, and the best gift of all, Jesus.

The beginning of the Advent season moves ahead with reading scripture each day telling the story of Jesus' birth and a piece of chocolate to savor.

Then I overheard tonight on the news about a mix of rain and snow tomorrow morning during rush hour. A slow, careful drive to school.

Hello, December!
