Something About Me Saturday: My Daughter's Christmas Party

It's been awhile but I thought it was time to do a Something About Me Saturday Post.  Life has been busy as I am sure it has been for most of you out there. This week I had to stop and remind myself to be present this time of year. The hustle and bustle had started to distract me from what's really important and that is to have fun and be open to the moments of joy that only happen this time of year. My daughter's class had a holiday party on Thursday and I caught myself initially saying, "Oh man, do I have to go?" There's all that shopping, wrapping, and cleaning the house I have to do. But I went and it was so worth it. Kids are only kids once right? The rest of that stuff can wait.

Looking serious with a candy cane she made from beads and a pipe cleaner.

  1. You are so right--it's a challenge to be fully present during the chaos of the holiday season, but so worth it, especially when little ones are involved.
