Sometimes when it gets to be close to Christmas...we begin to panic. The gifts that haven't been bought...or wrapped...or tagged. The food that has to be picked up...and prepared...and presented. The guests are coming and we have to clean...and dust...and welcome. Busy...busy...busy!
But we are almost there...today is December 23rd. Or it should be when you are reading this.
Now is the time where you have to rearrange your priorities. You have to give up finding the "must have" toy that is not going to materialize. You must cut out three of the seven casseroles you planned because there are only 24 hours in a day. You have to get assistance getting the presents wrapped by that kid who is home from college and is sleeping until noon.
It is two days until Christmas. And you may have already done everything on your list...or you may not have. It doesn't matter. Because in two days...we are celebrating...ready or not!
Try to remember that you are almost there. Sit back and enjoy. Have a cup of cider and just breathe. Turn on "It's A Wonderful Life" or "A Christmas Story" and enjoy Christmas past...or "Elf" or one of "The Santa Clause" movies for Christmas present. After all...'tis the season!
