"Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind."
~ Mary Ellen Chase
I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas. I know this time of year is busy and stressful for most people. It is good to take time out and focus on why we celebrate in the first place. I know that the birth of Jesus gets lost in the chaos of shopping, long lines, short tempered people, stress, loneliness, high expectations and family issues.
I am guilty of letting stress ruin my Christmas and I'm trying to do better. I would love to have a peaceful time and that just doesn't seem to happen. I'm a work in progress. What if we didn't think about Christmas just as one day and instead lived that state of mind every day. I think we all would be more peaceful in our lives.
The birth of one boy changed the world forever. A beautiful gift. The perfect gift.
