A little magic boot

Yesterday was Three Magic Kings Day here in our barn (…home).  It’s a cultural thing for our family more than anything. Anyways, if you leave your shoe by your bed with a little hay for the camels…those three magic kings will surely stop by for a snack and leave a final small gift in your shoe as the holiday season officially “ends”.

I found a gift was left for me as well…It was a glorious morning.

And, the view out the main room window.

THANK YOU for the gifts of quiet and stillness balanced with fun and chaos. And, the warmth and comfort that somehow follow everyone of these crazy days!

    It’s the eve of the Magi or the “three magic kings”! In honor, I’m posting this from last year. One of my favorites! May you all enjoy the balance of peace and chaos, fun and quiet, celebration and reflection in life.
