A time to share
Today's prompt is sharing and in looking for an image I got to thinking that this is the one time of year when just about everyone finds opportunities to share. Even such a little thing as hanging some ornaments on a bare tree in the front yard is a small sharing of beauty. Of course there's the tradition of gift giving and Santa for the kids, but we also share food and treats and donate or volunteer to help others.
For me, one of the best things about this season is the week of quiet time between Christmas and New Years. If you're lucky enough to have this time off it's an oasis of space that can be shared by family members and friends. I love that this is a time when there are no real expectations, and so it allows for impromptu gatherings, card games, watching videos, long walks with the dogs and cozy fires. I love this time of sharing.
