The holidays are over. School is back in session. In much of the country it’s chilly, wet, and gets dark early. And at least someone is sick. Sometimes it feels like Groundhog Day, with each day like the last. Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s easy to let the winter blues get you down…..if you let them. But I challenge you not to. Because the days of January and February are far from mundane. In fact, these are the days when magic happens. It’s during these winter days that family dinners are early and long, weekends are snuggly and slow, hot cocoa and cookies turn into secret telling sessions. These are the days where the real family memories are made. The memories rooted in time spent with one another. Mundane, ordinary, even boring days are the ones that build trust, attachment, and security. Making them the farthest thing from mundane. Making them magical.
Alonzo deserves to be part of a family’s mundane winter days. Part of HIS family’s mundane winter. He deserves hot cocoa and cookies, early and long family dinners, and snuggly and slow weekends. He deserves the magic of the mundane.
