Christmas is coming, are you still enjoying the season? I truly hope so.
The other day a feeling of “I am behind with my family’s Christmas plans” came over me. My shopping isn’t finished, baking not started and worst, our Christmas tree wasn’t up. Thank goodness it was a fleeting moment. I wasn’t behind, it was just different this year. In fact, it’s going to be better. The grandchildren are out of school, so the Christmas tree is going up today. They are so excited and asking many questions. Can they help decorate, can we have hot chocolate with marshmallows and candy cane stir sticks, can we have snacks, can we listen to the ” I wanna Hippopotamus for Christmas” song? The reply, yes, yes, yes and yes. Monday, will be shopping with the grandchildren and visiting Santa. Tuesday is baking day and so on.
This is advent season…meaning it is a season of preparation for Christmas. Take these last few days and enjoy the preparation. Christmas Day will be here and gone in a blink of an eye. Go ahead , enjoy your fellow man while standing in shopping lines. Enjoy the kids. Take that moment and look at the light and joy reflecting through their faces. Enjoy the aromas from baking and cooking for the Christmas meal. The gift of love is the greatest gift to give.
