I had to dust off my keyboard to write this one; my December dilemma is (of course) a lack of time to do things like oh, say, ....... think? My brain is overloaded with just managing the four Christmas programs, Christmas parties, purchasing, and preparing. All on top of the regular activities of four busy kids.
Don't get me wrong. I do love the holidays. I just wish they would stop passing me by and wait for me to catch up.
Today, as I was have an internal struggle with the fact that I hadn't yet created the Annis holiday card that we have faithfully sent for the last 17 years of marriage, I came across the a note my seven year old had written me right before she left for school. She placed a picture of herself right next to it and laid it on my desk.
Nothing beats the wisdom of babes to put a spin on my perspective. No more bah humbugs or complaints about being too busy. No more worrying so much about not making cookies and fudge. At least a little less worrying. I'll really try; I promise. Because nothing outranks the above.
Merry Christmas to all. May your little moments of this season shine the brightest.
