Mary is a little plush hedgehog. She makes me happy. She lives in a cubby of my desk and smiles... oh, absolutely. My little sister put her there one day, saying that she would make me happy when I was sad.
When I'm sad (and this is confidential, mind!) I either go for a walk with my camera, or...
I might occasionally be seen seated at my desk, with Mary sitting on my head, managing to dance wildly to the strains of Cantina Band from Star Wars in spite of my semi recumbent posture. (Which is most indecorous.) It's an instant hostile vibrations banisher.
But today, I'm not sad. I have a new grey sweater acquired during the flabbergastingly amazing cyber monday sale at Tulle clothing, plus a half yard of mustard knit in my stash that was born to be a scarf, plus it's snowing. Superficial things, but sweet.
I have wood on my porch, I have packages being shipped out with the work of my hands and packages being shipped in with gifts for my family.
Everything is merry and bright, in a quiet, everyday sort of way.
I wonder what will happen in my life this week. I think something new is coming. But I'm thankful for days that give us time to think - to treasure both all that we have, and all that is yet before us.
