Prompt: Gift. This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?
The biggest gift I received this year was my own blessing to follow my intuition, parenting instincts, and heart rather than what the world (or people) said. As much as I’ve always followed the tune to my own zither, that’s the one area I’ve never been able to really be authentic at due to a variety of reasons (lack of confidence in parenting, so many therapy instructors needed through Wood Sprite’s prematurity, etc.). It has made such a difference in our lives.
I also welcomed fiction readily back into my life this year after claiming for so long that I simply didn’t have time for it. Do I really; do any of us? Probably not as much as we’d like, but it makes each day so much more enjoyable.
