During the holidays there is just so much pressure to do everything!
For me this time of year is just crazy, not only because this is the busiest time at my boutique but it is also the time for designing Christmas parties. So yes, I am just a little bit stressed. Our tree is laying on the back deck waiting for a free moment to put it up. I have a feeling that it will only be getting lights this year! I have not decorated a single thing in my house yet and my front porch is half done.
So here I am this morning, making my lists and talking to myself. Telling myself that there is only so much time and only so many things I can get done. Telling myself to think about what is really important this time of year. Well, this helped me to focus. I realized that my family and grandkids are the most important! All the decorating, while I love to do it, is not what Christmas is about.
I know my three grandkids love getting cards in the mail. That was my priority this morning - sending our love for them through the mail! I love this time of the year - magic and whimsy, shopping and wrapping, parties and decorating, Christmas carols and more shopping but the most important thing - none of this is magical without those we love to share it with!
