Let My Christmas Go…


Funny…well…not really…but…it never ceases to amaze me…how things sneak up on me…like Christmas…it’s not like I haven’t had a year to get ready…it’s not like stores and commercials haven’t been reminding me for weeks if not months…it’s just that…it seemed like a long way away…until…here it is…just a week away…and…my kids will be here sooner than that…and…I’m not ready…

Oh…the tree is standing…again…and…the presents are bought…mostly…the menu is being planned…but…in my heart…I’m not ready

Why…

Bertha…surprised me with her answer…she said it is…because…I don’t want it to be over…

Huh…

She explains…that as long as it’s not here…I’m planning for it…thinking about it…being excited…and…that once it’s here…well…it’s fun for a couple of days…then…it’s over…the kids move on to the next family event…in the next town…and…life as usual resumes…

I have to say…I’ve never thought about it in that way…but…I think she’s on to something…

So…what am I supposed to do with the information…

And…she surprises me…again…with her answer…

Let go…

Let go…and just enjoy the moments…as they come…

  1. I agree with Bertha, it seems I am never ready, I think every Christmas that next year I will shop all year and make my home made gifts early, yet I never do those things. I am always in a “funk” after it is over and all the kids leave to go on to their other families.

  2. Hello Jane…

    Yes, as for me I like Christmas till the day arrives… It makes me quite nervous until we all sit down on the table and so on… Besides it is a very special day… When we were kids we waited for that day the whole year. So at the end when it arrives I guess we are not ready yet … (…)

    As to Bertha´s words, she is once again right… To let it go… It is the way it is, if you are not ready you will be … as simple as that.

    So going to the point now, my bet wishes for this holidays and Merry Christmas to you and all your loved ones, dear Jane…

    much love & peace !!!!

    • Ahhh…and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours as well…the presents are wrapped…just some groceries and stocking stuffers to buy…and…we’re all set! 😉
