View Full Version : Glad it's over

Don't get me wrong... It's a blessed event to celebrate each and every year... but no matter how hard I try to keep it in the spiritual sense, I always end up caught up in the sea of presents and stressed over trying to get it all done!

I just have to give a big sigh... and hope next year doesn't come so fast!

We really try to stress the religious aspect of the holiday. However, it is so easy to get caught up in the commercial aspects. I think it's a stressful time for a lot of people, myself included. But I wouldn't give it up. It's such a magical time for the children & I immensely enjoy watching their faces light up on Christmas morning. Hugs to all of you who feel a little stressed right now!

I'm glad/sad it is over.
I have volunteered to have next Christmas... Both sides... Hope we are in a house as there is no way I could host it here.

It will be a challenge, but good too.
