While staying up late to work on a final paper is not my idea of fun, there are, of course, some positives to this situation.
It's comforting to be sitting here in the warm, quiet house knowing my husband and puppy are sleeping peacefully down the hall.
It's soothing to be wrapped in a soft blanket, seeing the leaning, undecorated Christmas tree in my periphery as I type at the computer.
It's breathtaking to think about the sole source for each and every last one of the positives in my life. This is the most perfect season with the most perfect reason.
