The day before Christmas Eve–I can’t believe the year is nearly over! The final 4 months of 2005 have been frenetic for me. Adjusting to new work schedules, school schedules, and life in general has been a challenge. Sometimes I have been up to it, and other times I haven’t been. Laundry, housework, homework, doctor visits, Brownies, Webelos, Wolf Scouts, Bibls studies, choir, freelance work . . . all of it has contributed to a busy household. Much of the time I’ve felt frazzled. Getting ready for Christmas has only made things a little more crazy!
However, I am pleased to say that I wrapped most of the children’s presents last night, and I am trying to simplify things on the cooking end of things. My goal is for the weekend to be a little more relaxed than the 48 hours surrounding Christmas have been traditionally in our family. We will see.
I hope to have a new photo added to my blog in the next couple of days. Perhaps some of the Christmas Day shots will make it up too. I don’t want to pressure myself though 😉
Despite my somewhat stressful life, I have much to be thankful for and it is all because Jesus humbled Himself and became a man to suffer and die on the cross for my sins. Keeping that in perspective helps me remember that my stress is not so much to handle. Until my next post, I wish all who stop by here a Merry Christmas.
