Tomorrow is Dec. 15th. Just 10 days until Christmas! Is that really possible? More importantly, is there any way possible that I will be ready by Dec. 25th?
Service has become an important part of my life so tomorrow I will spend the day at Borders wrapping gifts for other people to help raise money for our work with Veterans. Who will wrap the presents I'll be giving? Another question - When will I buy all the presents?
Thursday I must go to the Legion Post at 10:00 a.m. to set up for the Christmas party we do for our Veterans. I will stay to help serve the lunch and clean up after. Hmm, I guess I won't be doing any shopping or wrapping on Thursday. So maybe Friday?
Oh no, that's right, on Friday I'm going to lunch with two of my daughters-in-law. I'm looking forward to that, and we will spend several hours lingering over lunch and enjoying each other's company. That will, however, take a rather large chunk out of the day so there may not be time for much shopping or wrapping on Friday. Saturday?
Well, it seems I agreed to watch my 4 1/2 mon. old granddaughter Saturday so my youngest son and d-i-l can take their other two little ones to a Christmas show in Lancaster. No shopping Saturday, but spending time with Grace is totally worth it. As a matter of fact, it's all worth it!
Next week I'll be spending at least two days doing some consulting work, and I am determined to continue to try to find time to do a little writing each day.
Perhaps I'll get to the mall on Sunday or do some last minute online shopping. One way or another it will all get done, and on Christmas Day and every other day of the year I will be grateful for all that I am fortunate enough to be able to do. Life is good.
