Overwhelmed by Christmas

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!

Merry Christmas!
