I know that this is a few days early, but giving how quickly the Christmas holidays are approaching, I wanted to wish you all an early Merry Christmas. Like the rest of you, it seems like there are still a million things on my list that are in desperate need of checking twice. Let’s not get lost in the hustle and bustle though. Take a few moments to look around and breathe. This truly is the most wonderful time of year, and there are so many things to look forward to.
In my family, there will be lots of good food, the watching and re-watching of Elf as many times as my husband will allow, and at least one blissful evening spent driving around and looking at lights. There’s Christmas Eve with Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB Gun, plus some anticipated moments with George Bailey and Clarence. There are Christmas carols to be sung, desserts to be baked, and several holiday books still waiting too be read. (Apologies for this paragraph not rhyming, in honor of the Christmas spirit, I feel I’ve taken a misstep here!)
So everyone, grab your loved ones close and snuggle in tight. I’m wishing for a Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight.
