I am so happy with myself right now. I am OFFICIALLY done with my Gifts from the Heart for Christmas!! I KNOW!! I am done so early!! I got ideas for things that would be cute for my sisters, but my parents were another matter. Then one night I was thinking about my grandparents and some items they had and inspiration struck! So I was like, I am going to do this NOW. Sure I had quite a bit of work to do for two of the items so I was up to...okay BAD me, 8:30 am. But I ordered everything and as long as they arrive looking right and are not messed up in anyway, I am DONE with that! Once we exchange them, it feels wonderful, but coming up with new ideas every year is HARD. That part is stressful, but because I worried earlier this year, I am done earlier! LOL! I can just concentrate on Christmas and helping other people shop which is much easier than your own shopping. I will still need to do a Secret Santa, but I HOPE to get someone easy to shop for!
Since life feels so dark lately, the thought of Christmas decorations soon, the beautiful lights and music, I just NEED that. So I am hoping to have the decorations up the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Holidays. It is not like I CHOOSE to be in this dark place, so anything that can put some glow in my heart, is most welcome! Sure Christmas can also be a worse time for me, as I lost 3 of my grandparents during the Holidays. The 18th, the 27th and the 31st. And I struggle with that, but I can only hope the glow from all the lights and decorations can bring some warmth into my otherwise cold soul, and pray that this season is better than the last.
And yes I am going to be SO bad as to post a holiday song with this post. Hey it is the first about Christmas okay! LOL. It is called The Face of Love by Jewel.
P.S. 2 days until my 4 year WLS Anniversary and 3 days until the New Moon Party!! Yayyyy!!
