A couple of weeks ago at church, my pastor spoke about three things that can rob us of joy at Christmas time. One thing was selfishness. One thing was jealousy. One thing was expectations. As I reflected on the sermon, I have realized that I often set expectations too high of myself & all that I can accomplish (or at least try to accomplish), especially during the busyness of the Holiday Season.
My husband and I are currently in the midst of a holiday trip--we’re spending a white Christmas in ND with my family (especially bittersweet this year, because of Grandma), and we’ll fly to SC later this week to spend New Year’s with his family. To top it all off, I’ve come down with some crazy sickness, which I’ve been battling a losing battle against since last week.
I had all these expectations of holiday posts & things to share during this special season & while we’re away. But instead, I’m spending this time with my family & friends. And trying to get over this sickness. I’ll be back in January with new posts & things to share. If you want to keep up with the day-to-day goings on, feel free to follow me on Instagram.
I wish you all a blessed Christmas. Hug your loved ones tight. See you next year.
