Are we bogged down in Christmas?
Bogged down in anxiety about finances?
We pared back years ago on the hoopla. Too much anxiety is bad for the soul and blinds everyone.
The expectations of a “Perfect Christmas” seem silly now in the light of all the consumer propaganda from Martha Stewart to Lady’s Home Journal to the internet sites.
Our perfect Christmas is just a great meal with family.
I’m very very grateful for those family members, especially the one who almost died this year and is now, while physically disabled, whole in mind and spirit.
