Time is rushing by, as it tends to do.
There are still presents to be gotten and wrapped, cookies to bake and stockings to fill.
I feel so very far behind this year, though I am normally such an organized person.
But this year, instead of letting the stress of my a-bit-behind schedule throw me, I’m taking in moments.
Moments of meals eaten in a Christmas filled dining room.
Moments of salt dough ornament making.
And couch cuddles by the tree.
Moments of neighbor gifts delivered by a sweet toddler.
Moments of excitement as the mail comes each day filled with beautiful Christmas cards of those we love.
Moments of stockings hung by the stairs and Santa pictures with little ones.
I know we will all be stepping away from our computers soon to enjoy our last minute shopping and never-long enough family time.
But I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
From our family to yours,
