Sometimes with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we forget to take time to appreciate what is really important in life. Buying the most gifts, throwing the best holiday dinner, or having a house look like it came out of Martha Stewart’s magazine is irrelevant in the whole scheme of things. What really matters is taking the time to appreciate and focus on what you do have, rather than what you don’t and don’t have the energy to accomplish. When you show gratitude for the things and people that are in your life, then everything else will fall into place.

Hmmm, I know many people are thinking that sounds great, but right now they have to get to the grocery store, clean the floors, feed the dogs, dress the kids, and make dinner. Well, I have all of those things on my list as well (with the addition of vacuuming and laundry). Nevertheless, it is my goal this holiday season to stop in the moment and just relish in the life and gifts of love that I have been given. And to be thankful for my home, family, and health. My Christmas wish for you is that you are able to find a moment in the craziness of this season and do the same for yourself.
