Christmas time is here, happiness and cheer.

as  Christmas draws closer and the busy schedules get beyond crazy
it is easy to get swept up in the hectic schedules and commitments...
the CHRISTmas parties and present giving

I take a moment towards the end of this day
to think on the goodness of the holidays,
the goodness of THIS day...

time spent with the ones I love, a house decorated in CHRISTmas spirit
a tree filled with gold, silver, green and chocolate browns
stealing time away today to sit over a cup of coffee with a friend
practicing in the choir tonight, getting together with others (  & standing next to my daughter) to sing and lift our voices!

Yes, it is easy to get caught up in it all
but, sitting here tonight I am blessed and happy.

what do you do to relax and not get caught up in the crazies?

a peek at our Christmas tree 2010

may you find time to sit and relax and enjoy the season-

I intend to take a bogging break to keep the balance. Beautiful photos of your tree.
