The final school day of 2009 passed without any Midol incidents. This year I received many cards from my students and a handful of lovely gifts. The handmade journal and the dragonfly pin in particular suit me perfectly.
There was also one more gift that is a superb addition to our home. It’s a luminary carved from a recycled can. Behold the Can O’ Light.
It’s simplicity is beautiful to me. From the manger to Christmas carols to candlelight services to sipping hot cocoa in the glow of the tree, my wish for you this season is that you find simple beauty.
