I love Christmas – the beauty, the giving, and the reason for the season. BUT sometimes the materialism and the decorating get to be too much for me. The materialism is a big distraction from enjoying the season through giving to those in true need. Sometimes I think they are the most overlooked in all the rush to find the perfect gift for someone. This season my heart is with the homeless and the displaced.
Decorating is a physical challenge for me. I simply am too short to decorate my own house! Yes, I use chairs. But we also have 8’6″ ceilings on the main floor. I managed to start decorating yesterday and had some help from Hubby last night. It will continue throughout the week, until I am satisfied.
Every year we seem to be missing something. This year we seem to be missing the small star for the top of the small tree. We ended up making a quick run to Dollarama and for a larger star tree topper last night. It doesn’t look too bad.
I also managed to email my business finances to my accountant yesterday. I’m hoping to be ahead on the tax front this year.
