What is it about holiday’s and the month of December that makes us crazy?
Maybe it is all the Christmas parties, the travel, buying gifts… just busy.
I don’t want to pass that along to Baby D. Sadly, I have turned my December into a crazy month. On Friday, I looked at my calendar for the month and realized that I am spread too thin.
I know if I don’t make changes now, it will be that way next year, and the next, and so on.
That’s the way it goes. If we don’t make the change when we recognize it needs to be made, tomorrow will never come. At least not for me.
This weekend, I made an effort to let the crazy go and invest in what was important..
Like getting my hair did… Why can’t big hair come back in?
I would so rock that.
lots of coffee…
with a good friend. Why do we let the crazy get in the way of quality time with friends?
(excuse the no makeup/ just woke up look. sleep = more important)
It’s so prreeetttyyyyy.. I’m wondering how long it will stay upright.
And snuggles. Lots of sweet snuggles.
Even when the preacher is preaching.
I don’t want the holiday’s to be rushed anymore around here. I don’t want to have a “to do” list a mile long.
I want to remember that it isn’t about the presents or the food.
It’s about Jesus. It’s about family. It’s about quality time.
Life is too short to not make the changes now. The emails can wait. The to do list can take a backseat.
Right now, it’s about enjoying the season. Not buying gifts because you have to. If that’s the case, don’t buy them. Buy them because it is a gift of love.
You don’t have to cook. You get to bless people with a delicious meal. One prepared in love.
Don’t add items and things to your agenda because you should do it. It’s okay to guard you time even during the holidays. There are things we are saying no to. There are ways we are changing and making new traditions.
It will be weird. However, it is going to be better for our family in the long run.
I hope you all have a Marvelous Monday!!
Tell me how you are guarding against holiday crazy.
Do you struggle with being over scheduled and too frazzled during the holiday season?
