Our first Winter Solstice celebration was a success. A success in that, even though it wasn't how I dreamed it to be, I still managed to have a smile on my face and love in my heart. I cannot control everything, but I can control how I act in a situation. This was a great lesson. My children didn't notice I didn't make the soup I planned, nor did they care. I did the best I could, and you know what? It was fine. The light came in the morning, I made it through the darkness.
