As the holidays are quickly approaching, I'm finding myself trying to slow down the holiday buzz. The holidays have crept through the radio with songs, into the tv commercials, onto drive-thru coffee cups, and of course inside the stores.
Today is the first of December and I am not ready to take off my turkey themed table cloth. Yet, I wish I had bought my Christmas tree yesterday. I'm eager to share the holiday cheer with my son but I don't want to overload him with the experience either. We'll get there, but I'm dragging my feet on decorating the house.
I'm meddling with a few ideas on how to keep traditions alive and would also like to start new traditions. I'm feeling overwhelmed with the idea of traditions and, really, wish I could do it all. Maybe that's why I'm hesitant about diving in head first.
I feel like there's not a lot of time for the holidays. As fast as they come, they're gone too quickly. We need to make time to enjoy a hot cup of coco and soak in the holiday cheer. There's always something to be greatful for and it would make for a great advent calendar to pick one word that describes what we're greatful for, today.
Today is December first, and after visiting my doctor for a physical, I am greatful for my health.
