Finding peace during this crazy time of year.

Is it even possible anymore? This is supposed to be the most magical time of year, right? I was out today getting my little girls photos taken for Christmas cards and such. While at the our photog's studio, normally a pleasant place to be thanks to all the wonderful material she creates, it started.....The Christmas RUSH. Pressure, and anxiety was flowing out of all the parents and helpers she had on staff. I couldn't help but begin to act crazy with all the misplaced emotions in the room. I normally love this time of year and staring at my pretty little girl all dressed up, so beautiful, like an angel. This was the first time I have ever felt, lets just say, "not so nice" about this magical time of year.

What happened to everyone? Why is it that we have all turned into such sour, grumpy, Bah-Humbugged Scrooges during what should be the best time of year to reflect on our wonderful lives and families? I made a vow to myself and to my family today to not let this happen to me! I love Christmas and all the magic it brings. Listening to my little angel say, "wow mommy, look....pretties" is all I need to snap me out of the negative holiday rush going on everywhere and bring me right back into my own piece of Heaven on Earth. I will just use my little girls innocent awe of the Holiday decor to keep me in my happy place! God only knows that if I don't, I may need to hit the holiday eggnog a little earlier than expected.

Sledding memories from last week to keep me sane..........
