I was talking to a friend of mine about Christmas. I was going on and on about the things we had to do and the gifts and the activities. When I finally had to stop to take a breath I heard this: “We’re keeping it simple. It’s been a whole lot calmer this year.” Simple Christmas. What a concept that is. Would we even know how to react in a situation where we didn’t have to kill ourselves to jump over all the holiday hurdles?
I don’t know about you but after this year I’m willing to try it.
