Feed the Birds… Quiet the Chirping.
Nothing keeps little hands busy and out of the way like sharp needles and purpose of caring for something other then your self. On Christmas Eve when all anyone can think of is going to my moms house and getting…getting …getting!… I quiet the buzz of energy with stringing cranberries and popcorn, rolling peanut butter and bird seed on pinecones. Only after a few pricks by the needle does everyone get focused and breathe deep a quieter humm of energy.
Merry Christmas Eve fine readers!~T
