Yes, I'm one of those people, sickeningly prepared for the holidays, with my gift shopping finished by Halloween and wrapped by Thanksgiving, and my cards in the mail by December 1st. This year, however..... this year has been.... challenging, and nothing is done!
But you know what? That's okay. I think it's fair to say many of us have had struggles this year, and expecting of ourselves more than our bodies and spirits can manage is an unfair burden. We can all allow ourselves time to heal. Heal our grief. Heal our bodies. Create for ourselves an atmosphere that is forgiving and comforting, in which time is a friend and tomorrow is a promise. I'm working towards seeing each tomorrow as that promise. It's not always easy, but it's always possible, right?
And yes, I'm gathering my energy for the busy weeks ahead, in which we all seem to scramble for some control, when our patience is stretched thin and our wallets thin as well. But, also.... yes, I'm looking forward to those beautiful days when I can surround myself with family and friends and curl up inside the building of memories.
So, though I've been quiet and distracted of late, my focus is pulling back to center and I've got plans. All kinds of plans. I hope you'll stick around to see them.
