Today, when the last thing I wanted to do was open up the curtains to the world outside, you gave me light.
Sunrise, another bright and brilliant Christmas morning with the arrival of a package from the north.
Then a little golden glimmer, with the relief of a responsibility shifted off my shoulders.
And a long, warm afternoon sunbeam – a little one napping for over two hours.
Finally, I was ready to pull back the heavy material and acknowledge grace, to understand the revealing of light on a winter’s day.
