Silver Paper and a Bow

Call me 'It's a Wonderful Life' girl - but sometimes the greatest Christmas gifts couldnt be wrapped in silver with a bow. They can't be placed under a tree nor fit in any sized box.

The best gift is when anger melts like the end of snow and the stillness of just letting go is the loudness noise for miles. Left to hold cupped in your tiny hands is hope. A hope for something bigger then you and a silent prayer that somehow someone out there wishes along side you. Smiling to yourself on your own front porch you realize nothing compares to the reality of living and enjoying the ride.

Silver lining and a bow wrapped up in just... being. Being Alive.
