This time of year is all hustle and bustle for most of us. We are going, going, going trying to finish our shopping and wrap our gifts, attend multiple parties, bake, cook, you name it. We don’t take as much time as we should to slow down, enjoy relaxing time with loved ones, and even remember those who may no longer be with us.
Even though this is the most wonderful time of the year, it can be painful for some. This will be the third Christmas without my brother, and in the midst of all our excitement on Christmas morning, opening presents and being around family, there is always a bit of sadness that he isn’t there with us.
I have so many fond memories of our childhood, and I want to spend this week reflecting on those memories. And share some of them with my daughter.
So I guess all of that just to say that I am trying to take time to slow down and enjoy this time with my loved ones. It really does go by so faster than we realize. I’ll be doing one post on Wednesday, will have a giveaway for you on Friday, and maybe one post or so next week. The rest of the time I’ll be enjoying my family and making memories.
I hope you’re doing the same.
