but I am not stressed this holiday season.
I could follow that up with a "yet",
assuming that it is only December 10th and I haven't planned the
Christmas Eve meal
or Christmas Day breakfast
but those thoughts don't produce even a distant hint of stress.
It will get done,
just like all the gifts on order will arrive
and get wrapped,
and the crafty gifts I want to make
will. get. made.
So on this Tuesday,
just 14 days from Christmas Eve,
I will unwrap this peace.
Because we woke up this morning to a lot more snow than we were expected to get and cars needed scraped and driveways shoveled
and Ellie was so congested we kept her home from school and when I called the attendance line at school I left my MAIDEN name that I haven't had in almost 18 years
then I left the name of the wrong daughter
which I clumsily corrected and then hung up.
But today, STILL,
I have PEACE
and I am going to enjoy it.
