oh December 1st. it has come quickly and quietly here. with no shopping, sleeping in, a movie, family dinner time, and thoughts of what is. I look around at people and friends and families and question life. the hardness. the unfairness. the sadness. and at the end of the day i am grateful that i am me. there is no changing the days but only the need to change in me. May Christ be remembered each day in this season of Advent.
