A Simple & Humble Season

Christmas is just around the corner as is another year come and gone.  The hustle and bustle of the holidays seem to overpower the reason for the season.  It all starts on Thanksgiving as we give thanks for everything we have and the next day the crazy comes out and won’t end until the New Year.  However, this year may be our most humbling and simple Christmas to date.  As we finalized our move over to the barn we realized just how much stuff we had accumulated and it was overwhelming.  As we are limited on space (4 people in 600 sq ft) we had to decide what was most important to bring with us and what to store until we get the house built.  I did manage to squeeze a small Christmas tree in.  Although the ornaments are in storage it luckily still had lights on it and I chose to display old vintage Xmas cards I had so the tree was not completely bare.  Nonetheless, bare tree or not, it will not make or break Christmas.  As we were making our holiday schedule for the rounds my mother told me things were going to be different this year at grandmas. This year there will be no presents and we are to bring our own meals as she can’t do it anymore.  Instead of presents or a meal that requires cleanup and/or hectic pot luck planning she just wants to break bread and spend time with her family.  I will not argue with that.  She is from a much simpler time and I think we could all use a good dose of her holiday spirit.  Don’t let the hustle and bustle of the season get to you.  Remember what’s most important is right in front of you, you just have to stop and slow down to see it!

till next time…
