It is that time of year when most people are bustling around getting ready for the Christmas festivities. Homes are being decorated, and gifts are being bought online and offline. It is a time when many people are stressed with all the planning and gift buying that they feel they have to do.
Currently I am not feeling stress brought on by Holiday preparations. My gifts are bought (albeit still unwrapped) and my freezer stocked. This weekend I shall put up our tree with my children’s help, and I will begin to clean our space for the Christmas period. The most important thing during Christmas is the time that we spend days together as a family – and that doesn’t take much sorting. My children will be happy to open a few gifts, and my husband will be satisfied to eat his favourite pastries and food. This year my eldest daughter wants to go and out and do some family activities. Which ones will be decided on when our son arrives next week.
This week I am grateful that I am not feeling any of the stress brought on by the Holidays. Instead I am looking forward to the family time that I will have with all the children present. This has always been my favourite time of year – and this year is no different.
