It's Here Again

It's that time of the year! Everything is getting busy already. I tried to knock out a big part of my Christmas shopping early because it makes me nervous. Next year, I'm going to simplify. Really, don't we have enough stuff?

How in the world does Christmas and everything else fall on the woman? Is it because Eve ate the apple? :) ~ As my husband says, "In the world of man, people just wouldn't get anything."

That's okay with me because when it is all said and done, I treasure the sentimental. An example is the cards signed by my parents, oops ~ signed by my mom. See there it is again, we even sign the cards for them. Do they even know how to write?

All kidding aside, I truly treasure this precious time with my family. My goal is to recognize my heavenly family too. How? By not losing sight of the fact that all love radiates from our Lord. He is the reason for every season, and the greatest Love of our life!

I try to keep Christmas shopping simple and early as well so as to enjoy the Advent season more fully. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.
Hugs & Blessings!

I admire those who "get it done" early...I tend to be wrapping at 11:55 pm on Christmas Eve. Of course there'd be NO hiding things for such a long period of time from my kids in this do you manage?

That's funny Judy. I don't have children at home! I guess you do have a problem with hiding. :)
