Winter Solstice

The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year and the longest night.  Each day from this day on will grow brighter. A time of year when we reach the end and just before we begin anew.  A chance to slow down and savor the beauty in nature. To reflect and hope for brighter days ahead.
