Slow down and enjoy holidays

“ ’Tis the season to be …” Oh, my, what will it be for you and me?

Do we enjoy smiles and happy thoughts and times of belly-bouncing laughter? Do we enjoy seeing children filled with excitement and sharing happy dreams? Do we enjoy friendly hugs and warm handshakes? Do we enjoy just being relaxed and visions of how we can help others? This happy time is out there for us if we seek it.

There is another side that we hear and feel so much in this season. People are rushing, and short tempers are evident. This business of trying to find and purchase gifts in a calm spirit is so hard. Feeling stress often is infectious, and it can do harm.

This season is so short. I do hope that we will find in it joy.
