and I've another wish for you...
Soft and Still...
Christmas is much like a grand Symphony in our large family and I am always the conductor. In preparation for the grand performance on Christmas morning, the perfect live tree must be found and decorated, halls must be decked with boughs of holly, shopping lists made and checked off twice, stockings hung and filled with treats to delight, delicious food must be ready to serve, and oh, I'm also the one who's job it is to make those visions of sugar plums become reality.
So many to care for, so much to do... and it all must be done before Christmas morning when the grand Symphony is performed, ready or not.
In all your busy-ness this holiday season, set aside time for yourself. Find a quiet place, put your feet up and listen to the silence. I'm talking still soft silence of a winters morning. Your sense of peace and happiness will be the key note of the grand performance on Christmas morning. Enjoy the Symphony!
This is my wish for each of you.
