The First Light of Advent

Advent, Advent, a candle burns
First one, then two, then three, then four
Then stands the Christ child at the door


The first light of Advent
Is the light of stones.
Stones that live in crystals,
Seashells, and bones.

Well it has begun, the journey towards Christmas. It is a very busy journey for us as we will be moving house in about two weeks.  Even though we are living amidst boxes I was determined to try to keep our Christmas rituals in place.   
It has been a really tough week with Aishlyn being very ill and spending a night in hospital.  Lumbar punctures, blood tests, relapses, no answers and no sleep.  Well she is on the mend now but I had a very anxious week.  It was nice to be able to do this to remind me that everything is alright, Aishlyn is fine and our little family is back to normal.

Happy Advent to all, enjoy this special time.
