The bustle of Christmas
I woke up this morning in a panic. Realizing that my youngest boy turns 5 tomorrow and the preprations for his bday party this weekend AND finishing up Christmas shopping...WHEN WILL I HAVE TIME??? It's always last minute. Every year, it's last minute. However, this year I'm focusing on the real reason for Christmas. Not the gifts (they will get a couple) but I want my kids to celebrate Christ's birth, not celebrate how many gifts they get. During the holidays, I think that we get too busy baking, shopping, and decorating that we don't have time to breathe. I love all this stuff, don't get me wrong, but I need to just slow down. Another great idea, most of the gifts this year are going to be homemade (the best kind). I already foresee a WONDERFUL Christmas!!!! I'm so blessed!
