Keeping First Things First

I am wrestling this season, vacillating between panic and joy, all of which is self-imposed! There are cookies to bake for gifts and things to wrap and cards to write and mail. I am at work for 8 1/2 hours every day, have physical therapy appointments after work several days a week and a multitude of holiday events I want to share with The Bearded One. When, oh when, will these things get done? In reality, they may not and I must let go of the angst over this fact. For if I don't, I will miss the whole point of this season, which is the birth of our Savior and Lord. It's hard to keep this in the forefront of my thoughts, when the list of things undone keeps sneaking in the back door! But I persevere!

I don't need cookies for Christmas. I couldn't eat them anyway. Just know that I know that you love me and want me to have a merry Christmas. And I'll wish the same for you, my friend.

I don't need cookies or presents, (except maybe your presence after Christmas sometime, when all that flurry of activity is over). Love and hugs are the best gift ever!

Oh, this post strikes a chord, as I'm in a similar place between pure panic and pure joy...LOL! We leave for our Christmas trip in just a few days, so lots to cram in. Wishing all the best this sure to have fun in between it all. :o)
