As much as I enjoy Christmas, there is nothing that seems to open up my living room like taking the Christmas tree down. I don’t know what it is about this particular year, but I didn’t even get it up until two weeks before Christmas and our Christmas tree seemed to have serious psychological issues in that it fell not once, not twice, but five times! Maybe its feelings were really hurt. Anyways, as soon as the last presents were taken out from under the tree and it was looking all sad and forlorn, it fell for the final time. I took it down Christmas afternoon, simply because it obviously was tired and didn’t want us to enjoy it anymore.
Something I did get to enjoy this year, however, was my beautiful nephew. Although I became an aunt when my sister got married five years ago with my niece, since she doesn’t live with them, I didn’t really feel like an aunt. The big surprise arrival of my nephew was the greatest Christmas gift that I could hope for! I have already purchased him a bib that says, “My Aunt Janis Loves Me.” I am going to spoil him rotten!
When thinking about the next year, I have a few things that I want to work on. I am just going to narrow them down to the basics.
Eat less. Exercise more.
Spend Less. Save more.
Less of me. More of Him.
If I can just do these three things, everything else will fall into place. How was your Christmas?
Smiles and Loves!
