It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Well, actually it has been looking like Christmas since the day after Halloween! Not at my house, but everywhere else I go!
No wonder I feel like I’ve fallen desperately behind in getting ready for the Christmas season! I only have 20 shopping days left before Christmas, and there are 3 birthdays to celebrate between now and then!
The “Christmas Season”.
I don’t want to feel overwhelmed by it, and so I have to step back and reevaluate almost everything I do. Why am I doing it, and who am I doing it for? I really do want to keep loving this time of year.
And…I want to enjoy it for what it is. The celebration and the joy of a very special Gift, which in turn affords me the opportunity to share a gift with those I love.
My goal this year is to keep Christmas, simple and focused. Enjoy the moments, and relax. Create new memories, and remember the ones from the past.
I can do this! I will do this!
