I keep telling myself..Its okay, the Christmas police are not going to hunt me down cause my Christmas cards are just getting mailed. They arent going to cuff me because I just now started shopping for my family. Santa isn't gonna put me on his naughty list because I didnt finish projects on time for friends and family... My ideas of what I want to do are always bigger than I have time for...Ultimately I end up settling for giving something less than I wanted to. But its okay...i tell myself...breath... relax...look at how much you have done, not what I haven't... I feel guilty because I havent dropped as much in the kettle as I would have like to..not because of lack, but I just havent been out much... I feel for the familys who need so much. My heart is heavy for them this time of year. I can say that I feel good about the tri-county toy run where we raised over 25,ooo for needy families. As the kids are getting out of school for Christmas break, I will have to remind myself to make it light, not to stress and create an enviroment of peace not stress. Hopefully the kids will be pleasant in response. Its my Christmas wish of Peace at home and Peace for our world.
Check out the fun cards I made with recycled acetate that comes in much of the packages.
