I can’t believe that Christmas-time is here. It can’t be December in just a few days, can it? This year is going by so quickly … as they all seem to do these days. Once I became a mother it seems that time sped to warp speed. Just yesterday, I thought, I had my son. The reality is that was six years ago. WHAT?? Say it ain’t so.
It’s hard as a working mother to reconcile these thoughts — of kids growing up before our eyes. Should I be trying to find a way to spend more time with them? They are only small once after all. I don’t have the answers to the questions that swell in my head. Especially in today’s economic climate where it takes so long for the unemployed to find work. I am thankful for a great job that provides for my family.
I’m not sure what I’m saying here, except that I want to concentrated on making this holiday season meaningful. And memorable. To slow down and enjoy the month. To make memories that my kids, my husband and I can take with us for a long time.
How do you slow down to enjoy the season?
