Pre Christmas retreat

I'm sure there were 
bustling malls filled with last minute shoppers,
crying children,
stressed out adults,
loud noise,
traffic congestion
 somewhere in Iowa...

but, blessedly,
not where I was!

Just 5 twigs from different branches 
of the family tree
getting together,
without distractions,
to celebrate being a family.

It was a wonderful reminder
glimpses of the divine come to us 
in smallness,

the best gifts don't cost anything
and the coming of love into our lives 
is what we celebrate this holiday season.

NOW I'm ready for Christmas!
