The big day is only two days away. There are signs all around me – excited children, jam packed malls, christmas caroling, and delightful smelling foods. Lucky, our elf of Elf on the Shelf fame has been working overtime keeping an eye on all of us this month. Somehow, he took over the responsibility of relaying christmas wishes to Santa when the kids decided they weren’t going to write a letter this year. We’re just hoping Lucky has a good memory! : )
Every year I am amazed how quickly December flies by. There’s still wrapping to be done, school events to attend, packing of luggage, cookies to bake, as well as traveling to said destination. But despite all that looms ahead, I can’t help taking a moment to appreciate a moment of peace and quiet. Sitting in my kitchen listening to beautiful holiday music, a crackling fire in the background and my entire house asleep, I can appreciate all that the holidays represent. Time with loved ones. Peace. Joy.
So from my family to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you find a little peace this holiday season.
