It’s been a while since I’ve posted here in my little spot in the internet. Not because I haven’t thought about it. Heck, I blog in my head all the time. I’m funny, witty and heartfelt in my thoughts while I’m driving, then I get home and in front of the laptop and…it’s gone. Then I’m like, “I should be reading….no, no….D-OO-NN”-TT go down that time sucking vortex called Facebook!!!” (That’s me talking to myself). But I did want you guys to know that I am still here, I’m still reading, AND I have one more book review to post for the year to complete my TBR Pile Challenge. Also coming up, I’ll be filling you in on my reading goals for 2015.
Can I just say….this has been a pretty stressful season.
I realize that for most of humanity, in first world countries anyway, this is the norm. But for me, a generally happy person by nature, this time of year doesn’t usually get me all panicky and out of sorts. In fact, it energizes me. I don’t mind crowds, I don’t mind noise, I don’t usually need to rely heavily on being hyper-organized to get through my day. Being married to someone who is hyper-organized keeps me in pretty good shape. (Bless his heart, he can’t help but ooze administration.)
But this year. Ugh. This year has been rough. There’s not enough time, money or Darlene to make all the things I want to happen, happen. I have been in a perpetual state of behind since the day after Thanksgiving.
But you know what? It’s going to be ok. It’s going to be Christmas whether I feel it or not. Something tells me that the Holly Jolly feeling is going to show up in the nick of time but even if it doesn’t, it’s going to be Christmas anyway. And that’s enough.
So my prayer for my family and yours is Peace on Earth in your world and in mine on this Christmas Day.
I don’t know how much you need, but I’m confident we all need some measure of it.
So Peace to you.
