It feels like Christmas

“Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.” Washington Irvin

Sunflowers

“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” Helen Mirren

Missing you

“I am starting to accept that you never loved me.
And it’s sad because I don’t think you see
how beautiful you are to me…”

“I missed you so much,” she breathed.
I tilted my head back and put my hands on her shoulders. I could hardly believe this was happening. I was finally getting to touch her. To kiss her. It was all happening. “I missed you, too.” Kieran Scott, He’s So Not Worth It
