Every year Christmas season seems to come earlier. Before Halloween decorations are down the Christmas lights are going up, and the shopping frenzy begins.
Tis’ the season to be merry with Christmas lights, music, and decorations filling the stores, crowds of people materialize from nowhere and everywhere. The hours of the day are suddenly crammed with to-do-list so full it makes my head spin.
I wonder how I ever managed to work a full time job, raise a family and still finish the things on my list. Hats off to young mothers everywhere. Maybe it’s my age, who knows, but for whatever reason, my list keeps growing. It feels as if I’m taking two steps forward and three steps back.
All I can do is keep putting one foot in front of the other; I’ll eventually accomplish what I set out to do. For now, I intend to relax, enjoy a bit of this Christmas spirit, and my family. There’s sure to be a few stories I can glean from this crew!
