May you delight in the blessings of Winter

May you delight in the blessings of Winter

a season for restoring body and spirit,

and for savoring

friendship,

long quiet nights,

warm, nourishing soups and stews,

herbal teas that soothe, warm, and cheer,

candle and firelight,

the sheer beauty of nature’s forms stripped of all finery,

the still small voice within.

However you observe the season, may you find yourself in good company and in good cheer.
