Yoga, Breath, Light, Love
I don’t have enough time, money, or creative mind power for Christmas.
The malls are too crowded ~ ugh!
The traffic is out of control ~ ugh!
I can’t believe I have to travel ~ ugh!
My employer is only observing the holiday on Friday ~ ugh!
Too many parties; too much food/drink….
I haven’t yet heard:
I am so blessed to be with my family ~ hooray!
I am so glad that people are spending money during this tough economic time ~ hooray!
My family and I have agreed not to buy each other (adults..that is) gifts in observance of the truer meaning of Christmas ~ hooray!
My employer is observing the holiday on Friday rather than Saturday so I get an extra day off…with pay ~ hooray!
I get to stand back and listen, learn and observe as these beautiful folks rush through their lives during this extra special time and while I cannot quote the real meaning of Christmas, I can tell you how much I love being with my family and friends and how blessed I am to have a roof over my head, food in my belly, and love all around me.
How about you?
