When we were children the anticipation of Christmas morning
seemed like an endless journey. We counted and crossed off each
day on the calendar longing for the big day.
Now, the minute December 1st rolls around there is a mad flurry
of shopping, parties, addressing cards, wrapping and mailing packages,
decorating and baking cookies. The hours and days fly by at break
I just want to yell ~ stop! Slow down. Let's take a few moments to
savor the season. It will be New Year's Day in a couple of weeks and
all the decorations will come down and we will be rushing towards
the Super Bowl and then Valentine's Day.
Why are we in such a hurry? Why this self imposed rush?
Come join me for a few moments of savoring the season. Make
yourself a pot of tea or a cup of hot chocolate. Let's sit by our
Christmas trees for a few minutes and take in the beauty. Go for a
walk around your neighborhood tonight and enjoy the Christmas
lights. Slow down a bit and take it all in. Call an old friend and take
some time to chat. Just take some time to be in the moment because
it all goes by too fast.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
