"Oh my friends I've begin to worry right..." The opening line to "Sister Winter" by Sufjan Stevens sure feels on the mark for 2016. In times like this, our hearts may truly long to "return to sister winter." But amid the sorrows and the losses of this most recent cycle around the sun, and in spite of the worries and the fears, it's more important than ever to embrace the simple, everyday joys that feed our souls and warm our hearts. May this poignant holiday carol brings you a bit of joy at the end of a year in which we need it most.
