Letter from the Publishers
This is our first winter in The Cabin and so far, it’s been more wet than cold. It’s so quiet and peaceful especially now that it gets dark so early. Our three basenjis are enjoying their new dog house complete with electric hound heater and thick bed of hay. Sadie has become quite the “big dog” exploring under the cabin when we leave her out for a while. We aren’t going to buy a tree this year. I mean, we live in a forest. It’s just a matter of deciding on pine or cedar. Cindy is enjoying choosing which of our antique Christmas ornaments to use in decorating the tree and the cabin. Not sure where we will have Christmas dinner. Thanksgiving we dined at the Cracker Barrel in College Station. So maybe we will stay in and cook and maybe we will venture out.
Thing is, the winter holidays are a time for traditions and memories, but things and times change. There is no point in being sad for long because you can’t have the same Christmas or Hanukkah that you had as a child. Savor the old memories and make new traditions which will become new memories. Find something to celebrate and someone to celebrate it with. There are lots of opportunities in our calendar of events.
As we start our fifth year as Natural Awakenings publishers, we are thankful for the calls and emails we get from you, our readers, about an article that made a difference in your life. That makes all the hard work worthwhile. Be sure to call or drop by our advertisers and tell them that you heard about them in Natural Awakenings.
