Sometimes some folks won't let you forget the Christmas is coming. I know it is coming. And resist as I might, it is going to come no matter what. Truly, it is all just part of my natural proclivity to procrastinate. "Never do today what you could do tomorrow," I always say.
Seriously, I do tend to put things off. Getting ready for Christmas is one of them. Now I have this cute little snowman snow globe from my friend that she brought by this morning. I have instructions to plug into my computer to remember that it is Christmastime for heaven's sake. The little guy turns from green to blue to red to white. All this whilst the glittering snowflakes swirl in the warmed waters of the snow globe. It is just too darn cute! And, truly, it is just the festive touch I needed to get myself going.
I can remember many the year lamenting that I just wasn't in the Christmas mood. Holidays? Bah humbug! But it is a gentle reminder that Christmas, like every season, is what we about sharing and just remaining mindful of the wonders of life. We all can decide how we want to feel about things and events. Remember as the Borg in the old TV show, Star Trek, once said, "Resistance is futile!" He must have been talking about the holidays.
So, while I may have other things to do, (don't we all) bottom line is I do love Christmas and I am going to do it up right this year...even if it makes me crazy!
