We have a wonderful treat today!
My daughter's birthday is coming, and during the past few weeks I managed to shop ahead of time for her gifts and wrap them. Today we'll enjoy working on her birthday cake together, and on her birthday, the day will be all about enjoying time with her, not rushing around to finish last minute details.
However, we each have to be patient with ourselves and realize that sometimes everything isn't going to go as smoothly as we had hoped. Sometimes we will feel like we're spinning on a merry-to-round and we'll have many last-minute tasks to do. I remember plenty of Christmases where I stayed up late on Christmas Eve wrapping gifts. Sometimes I'll head out to a meeting with a printed agenda that I pulled together minutes before because I just couldn't make the time earlier. (Don't you love those moments of panic when the printer won't print?).
We just need to do the best we can, keeping things simple, and having our priorities set so that we can focus on the most important things. (Easier said than done sometimes, isn't it?). Some of the last minute, spontaneous, unplanned moments can bring lots of "joy to our journey." So take a deep breath and try to create order in your life, while still making room for the unpredictable things that come your way!
Thanks for sharing Erika! Please " COME" again!
