Getting ready for Christmas!

The Christmas Spirit is supposed to be cheerful and happy, however around my house the stress and tension levels seem to escalate! I am not a shopper, but shopping needs to be done. I want to be involved in the Christmastime decisions, but I only last about a half hour at the store before I get edgy and am done. I like to go with a list, get what is on the list and get out. Others in my family love to browse. It drives me crazy! It is my challenge that I must overcome. In an effort to promote the Christmas Spirit I attempt to control my emotions so everyone can be happy! When I succeed in this effort, I notice that our home is a much happier place.

This image reminds me of one of the best Christmastime experiences in my life. I post it as a reminder to myself that Christmas is about being selfless and making others happy. By putting others first I find the strength to persevere the commercialism of the season and find the peace that can enter our lives at this time of year if we allow it.

I wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of holiday seasons. Now it’s time to start the shopping!

  1. I love this one! I am the same as you when it comes to shopping. I HATE it! But it must be done… Thank you for this picture and the reminder to look to the beauty in all this Christmas time commercialism. I needed that!
