I can't believe how quickly this season is flying past. It seems this one got away from me. I still have shopping to do, I have called it quits on decorating more than the minimum this year. I have lots of lights and candles up, but little else. The Christmas tree is finally decorated thanks to my dear daughters getting together this morning while I was at work and hanging the ornaments. Thank you girls! I haven't baked one cookie (I don't want to eat them!) but I have had so many cookies baked by other sweet hands that I couldn't hold one more, (In other words, I ate them anyway!) My baby brother picked up my youngest earlier this week and brought her home . He stayed for a little Christmas cheer and I can hear him snoring on the sofa in the next room. Victoria is wrapping gifts at the table and Earl is cleaning up the kitchen (oh happy day!) I just got home from my last day of work for two whole weeks.
In spite of the minimal decorating and the rush of the season all is well. My family is home and healthy, God has provided for all our needs and even some of our wants, which are surprisingly few. It is time to relax, quit fluffing the decor, stop worrying about making everything perfect and just enjoy this coming week. Some things are more important than one more bauble right?
