Zwischen den Jahren…


“in-between the years”.  that is what the mysterious phrase means.  It is used to describe the time between Christmas and Epiphany.  This information is all courtesy of my German instructor. 

I like that:   “in-between the years”.  how apt.  That is exactly what this time of year has always felt like to me.  The year is over, the year has not yet begun.  Kind of a dream state.  Some things:  work and school, the mail, slow down during this period and others: gathering of family and friends ramp up to amazing speed. 


Enjoy this zwischen den Jaren.


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.
