My birthday weekend was absolute wonderful!! It was everything I could have wished for and more and I will definitely blog about it soon but I don’t know exactly when. Meanwhile this post is very important to me and I wanted to post it today!
I read SuzQ post yesterday and I went from there to Theresa both were discussing scaling back some of their usual Christmas activities to lessen stress. This is a great idea but one that can bring on stress of its own if you allow anyone, including yourself to make you feel guilt over this decision. Whether this is your plan or whether you plan to go all out this year I want to point something out to you all.
Many of us have several families, our family, and our spouses’ family, those we work with, those at church. But think about all of us here in blogland, we are family too. We won't be exchanging gifts, I won't be able to eat your cooking, and we don't even know each other's addresses to send cards, and none of us feel slighted about any of this. I love each of my blogger friends and you will be in my thought on Christmas Day along with my other families. Maybe this is a pure form of friendship, we know each other’s hopes and dreams and desires and secrets but all that we expect from each other is understanding and acceptance.
So I will be around some this week. I may post, I may just read. But I will enjoy my family, relax and enjoy the holiday season! I hope you all do the same!!
