HI hi hi hi hiiiii everyone! Merry Christmastide and happy New Year and glorious Epiphany! We had actual influenza sweep through the household which made me so so glad that we Catholics celebrate Christmas for 12 days, because this 25th of December was one of the least merry in Donaldson family recent memory. Now that we’re finally all on the mend, there’s still some Christmas to celebrate.
I have been craving just this! What steps are you taking to re-train your brain and body? That’s where I’m at a loss.
Happy Epiphany! I never thought of ordinary time as a gift before, just the boring green parts of the liturgical wheel from the kids' catechesis, but you're absolutely right-- what a roller coaster we'd be on without it! Gosh, I might even take down the Christmas tree this month just to simplify (I like to say we leave it up until Candlemas, but in reality it's gone far beyond that out of laziness & wanting to keep up the pretty lights during the dark season).
