Since I was a little girl I’ve been an early riser, early as in between four and five am. I have learned to enjoy this time alone and I usually get a lot accomplished. Today I am planning and starting Christmas baking. Making the weekly bread and planning the menu.
I am not going to the grocery store and am not researching different areas of interest today (I will often spend an hour a day in research on things like health, herbs, or soil). No instead, I am reflecting on the meaning of Chistmas for me and spending time in thought and prayer.
