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?
