It's so refreshing to have a day to set aside for special remembrances. Christmas seems to top the list of holidays when it comes to a total switch-up of the schedule. Other than my husband's few years in shift work during his law enforcement career, we've been privileged to have time together at home as a family—much as I remember my parents being able to do when I was growing up. I'm sure my mom and dad could say much the same thing for their own childhood, but now, more than ever, it seems so rare to be able to just stop the daily grind for a breather with those we love.
I hope you are able to find a peaceful respite today with those who mean the most to you. Tomorrow is another day—and there is always something more to do—but for today, may you find peace, quiet, and loving connections to make your day the special event that it is.
