|Having injured my knee while skiing yesterday, I spent today housebound and ultimately basking in the wonderful caring of friends and neighbors who brought well wishes, gifts and goodies my way.|
This was the first time in nine years that I was in Homer for Christmas and though my injury kept me from skiing and walking the beach as I'd planned, it was a beautiful day filled with much love, light, beauty and silent contemplation... along with chocolate, Christmas movies, phone calls, face time calls, chocolate, skype calls, emails, snuggling on the couch with Zip and Angel, and chocolate.
My Christmas Day was one of simple joy, where my banged up knee forced me to be still, allowing me to savor every moment. What an unexpected and lovely gift. Sometimes the Universe provides what we didn't even know we needed...
I hope your day was a very special one too, filled with many blessings!
