Week 52 Before Shots

Week 52 Before Shots

I’m finally feeling Christmas. Which is a good thing, because I was becoming concerned that I just wouldn’t feel it much this year, and that lovely feeling was pretty late in coming.

See, Christmas stresses me out. It isn’t the busy-ness of the season; I enjoy being busy. Let’s be honest… it’s always rather busy around here, so Christmas doesn’t really feel any different than any other time of year.

It isn’t that I wasn’t feeling the warm Christmas fuzzies. I get those fuzzies from little things every day because I look for them. I am thankful every day that we have a house, food in the refrigerator, appliances, electricity, running water… all of the things that would be so very easy to take for granted.

The source of my Christmas stress, the thing that was overriding my joy, was the simple fact that I hate to shop.

However, being thankful for little things meant that I was very thankful for my planner. I had everything organized, lists upon lists, so that my brain didn’t have to try to process all of that information while I fought my way through traffic and tried not to get run over in stores (I’m very small. I get run over often.)

And I finally found my Christmas fuzzies. Standing in my nine-year-old son’s gym on Thursday, holding my toddler, listening to the an entire school of little kids singing “Go In Peace” flooded me with joy. Thank you, Jack, for finding my fuzzies for me.

Now that the fuzzies have been located, it’s time to wrap presents and drink lots of coffee. I don’t know how interesting the After Shots from this week will be, but these Before Shots are All Christmas.
