It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
I don’t know why it is claimed this is the most wonderful time of the year, because for the last week I have been very stressed. Wonderful was the very last adjective that came to my mind.
Winter holidays are funny, actually. We run around getting gifts, going to parties, giving gifts, sending out cards and well wishes, being grateful for all those around us, complaining the whole time about having to figure out what gifts to buy, spending time at parties, complaining about the post office, yet, being grateful for all those around us. Why bother with all the crap. Why not just make it simple : be grateful for all those around us.
So, to you, all my readers. The ones who come all the time and the ones only every so often… Thank you. Happy Holidays and many blessings for a wonderful New Year.
May your holidays be the happiest of all time. May you be safe and healthy. May you be surrounded by love and warm hearts full of gratitude.
