As this time of year sneaks up, it can make a person feel overwhelmed, don’t you agree? However it may just be me and I should speak for myself.
This year: My plan of action is to feel as much joy and peace as possible and to not feel pressure to conform to what others think the holidays are, to listen to my heart.
I have created two magnolia wreaths, the first ones I’ve ever made. Yesterday I hung them on our front doors and that my friends, is our decoration this year.
I have been practicing a Christmas song on my guitar and that really gives me inner joy.
Christmas and Holiday cards.... the thought overwhelms me, but it will get done and I will have a good attitude while doing it.
I will ride with the American Girls Book Club in the Christmas Parade and my husband and I will visit our friends Sam and Jeff in Natchitoches, La and experience the Christmas Celebration of Lights (by boat on the Cane River) and also we will go to a few lovely parties. This year we will be in New Orleans for Christmas.
What about you? How will you celebrate the holidays this year and how do you maintain joy and peace?
