a day bursting at the seams with goodness

a lazy morning, chili on a chilly day, the smell of fir trees, the fresh taste of a hot homemade donut from the plain-dress family at the farmer's market, the annual ornament+story ritual with the fam, Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas - an album that by all rights should never have achieved any vaguely "classic" status but has done so nonetheless in my family, yelling with and at my sister, being greeted at Jen and Mike's door by four VERY excited pizza party participants, hanging out with some tiny people for the evening, sitting toastily by the woodstove, Jen's stories of finding a place and some people in a church, payment in peanut butter brownie torte, and coming home to prayer books in my mailbox and christmas cards from across the country.
