Hello my dear friends,
Well, by now the tree is up, stockings are hung, maybe. Maybe the packages are bought and wrapped. For the Simonton's, not so much though!
I'm a slacker this year. I started with a bang but the fire started fading when we began moving the salon. I don't know what is wrong with me.
As much as I abhor moving and big change, I seem to pick the worst of times. When I moved from Hwy. 14 back in the '90s, yes, you guessed it. It was Christmas. When we moved into our house, yes again, Christmas. We claimed a foster holly on the back porch as our Christmas tree that year. So now, I've gone and done it again. And it's Christmas!
Although I know we will survive this move, we are tired and kind of dreading all the hustle and bustle. Neal and I have decided to simplify and not worry about all the decor of things this year.
After all Christmas is about Christ, not all the other stuff. We are going to enjoy our family and remember Christ is the one we celebrate.
Please pray for those who are sick, those who are grieving for loved ones, our military away from home and for those who are less fortunate.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
