Trimming the little tree with my family at Boal Memorial yesterday morning, experiencing the intense highs and lows of love. Ever grateful for traditions such as this, which serve to anchor me. Mindfully breathing deeply into my heart to balance what is here, and what is not. Lighting the candles and cuddling the baby. Six of us singing an enthusiastic rendition of "O Tannenbaum." Laughing as we stumbled through the lyrics. In my mind's eye, through all of this, seeing Michael and Kelly working hard in the unseen, offering comfort to the newest little angels who have just arrived. Embracing them with loving arms, helping them settle into that space where souls meet. Together, all of us supporting one another with love.
