>home from church
first I’ve been to in a while
(understatement)
feeling advent
feeling care in my soul
peace
love
for a dear friend
for my family
for the fragility of us all
see my husband
baby girl
cuddled up, asleep

in my room
changing from skirt to jeans
padding down the hall
door opens
little cherub in pink pajamas
eyes wide in anticipation
smile dancing on her face
for me

this
is my Christmas
