This morning my 4-year-old asked me how long before Christmas. “25 days,” I replied. “UGH!” she sighed in reply. It’s going to be a long month. I’ve got to get our advent calendar out some time today to help her understand how long a month is.
If you are like me, you’re saying to yourself, Oh no! only 25 days until Christmas. I can’t believe it’s December. Where has this year GONE?
Let’s take a breather today and remember what the season is about. It’s not about stress. It’s not about gifts. It’s not about getting the holiday cards in the mail. It’s a time of reflection and anticipation of a new year. Take a moment today to just enjoy the day for what it is. Take a minute to gather your hopes for the season. Take a minute to make a list of what you want to do. And then, my friends, let’s just take December one day at a time.
Since we’re talking about less stress …. I’ve already noticed a few people clicking on one of my most popular posts The best Christmas tree stand ever!! Truly, it is the best stand. I know others think their stand is the best, but this guy beats them all. Head on over if you need a stress-free stand.
