I can’t believe it’s almost December 25! It is true… the older you get, the faster time seems to move. Jobs, family time, holiday parties, sporting events, school activities… They all crowd up this busy time of year. When I was younger, it seemed like Christmas vacation (it was still called that way back then) lasted FOREVER! It was filled with days outside playing in the snow, trying out the new toys, just hanging out with my family, enjoying TV specials (no DVDs or OnDemand back then). I think back to that time with amazement. Then I wonder, am I providing my children with the same great memories? Or am I too busy with “stuff?” As I read my books, spend time online, run to the stores, text on my phone, am I forgetting to just slow down and spend quality time with the family?
We have one more week until vacation time begins. My goal is to slow down and give more time back to my family. I want to create magical childhood memories for my kids. And I’d love to get back a little of the magic for myself. What about you? What are your plans for the holiday season?
