It’s so hard to believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and 2013 is right on its heels. December is always a busy time for my family. Well, actually October, November and December are all busy months for us. Between family birthdays (most fall between October and November), Thanksgiving, Christmas, and just the regular daily activities, this time of year can be a little anxiety driven for me. Add to it a new baby on the way, and well, things can get interesting.
A couple of weeks ago, my grandfather passed away unexpectedly from lung cancer. Thankfully, he didn’t suffer long. He was a strong man, so we are grateful that strong memories are the ones that we get to keep. But, he’s still gone and this is a hole, a void, a vapor that will be with us forever forward.
If you are steeped in the middle of holiday preparations, festivities, extended family time and more, I just wanted to encourage you today to take a step back from all of the “activity”, and remember.
That’s what I’m trying to do right now. Slow down, take inventory and stand still long enough to embrace the good.
Hope your week is super fantastic!
Keep doin’ what you love,
