Happy December 1! As I mentioned here, I love this time of year. I mean, I really really love it. Shoot, I wear Christmas socks all year long! I believe that every moment during this month should be soaked up and celebrated while it can be because before we know it, we blink and it’s all over.
I would say that a large majority of people are so stressed out during the holidays which is probably attributed to purchasing gifts, spending too much money, family coming into town, etc. Who in the heck knows why people are so stressed out but I will say that despite Stephen’s graduation coming up, a cross country move 10 days before Christmas, building a house in a state we’re thousands of miles from, and traveling for work, I refuse to let the holidays stress me out. In fact, they will do the opposite. They will fill my spirit with even more joy.
I created this advent calendar with that exact purpose in mind. Every day in the month of December there is a little something to spread the joy around. I hope that each simple act results in even one more smile. Yours included too, of course!
