“T’was the month before Christmas, when all through the house
All creatures were stirring, including the mouse; (metaphorically speaking)
No stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
We hope St. Nicholas takes his time getting here.
Welcome, Friends, I’m so happy you’re here to visit for awhile. It’s two days before Thanksgiving and I want to wish all of you a wonderful day with family and friends. This post is all about not stressing about the holidays even if you have too much to do and too little time to do it. TAKE A BREATH! I’m just now getting out the Christmas boxes, Christmas tree and holiday decor out of storage. I haven’t done any baking, minimal decorating, no cards and time is flying by.
Wreaths and lanterns need to be decorated and put up.
Baking needs to be done…
…and vignettes need to be assembled. My husband is scheduled for another surgery the end of November and things are just a bit chaotic. We all have way too much to do this time of year. So why am I telling you all of this?
To remind us both that the season is not about the decorations or the baking or the holiday vignettes. The season is about love for family and friends, for those we disagree with and those who share our values. It’s a reminder that LOVE is the most important thing and we should cherish it in our hearts all year round.
So, remember, if the decorations aren’t perfect and the vignettes don’t get done, your family and friends will still love you and celebrate being together with you for this wonderful season. TAKE A BREATH!
