A Wish For You

The holidays are here once again, and the frenzy is upon us. Cooking, baking, wrapping…oh my! So as we run around, trying to create the perfect, memorable day I have just one wish for you.

I wish you peace.

The peace of being surrounded by love ones.

The peace of a quiet evening by the tree.

The peace of sitting on the couch and watching your favorite movie.

The peace found when you take a step back, let go a little, and breathe.

The wrapping doesn’t have to be magazine picture ready. One type of cookie is fine. And let all those people who offer to help with dinner actually help. Because what gets remembered isn’t the trappings. What gets remembered are the moments of quiet. The feeling of peace.

May you have a holiday surrounded by those you wish to spend time with and full of memorable moments of peace.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you…

My family starts arriving this week, which means I won’t post again until the new year. I want to take this time to say thank you for reading,  and share some of my wishes for you. See you in January!

I wish you (in no particular order):

Joy

Peace

Children that go to bed early on Christmas Eve

Love

Contentment

The ability to eat ALL the holiday treats without consequence

Happiness

Rest

A family dinner without drama

Calm

Appreciation

Pants with elastic waistbands

Time with family

Time with friends

A parking spot and empty register line at the shops

Merry Christmas!
