As Christmas creeps up I am grabbing little moments of time and holding them close. There is beauty and peace in the early morning, there is an hour in holding someone's hand. There is something meditative and calming in rolling out dough, in finding a tree in bloom. There are moments that encompass whole worlds of time and others in which time flits past like a small child - busy, busy, busy.
I hope time is kind with you over the next couple of weeks and you return the favour. Hold your loved ones close, savour your meals, enjoy the wrapping of presents and the writing of cards, make time for rest and moments of ease if you can, curl up with books. Today may be a long day of sunlight but it will go quickly too.
Wishing you all a peaceful festive season.
