and all through the house
not a creature was idle,
not even the louse.
The stockings were washed
and waiting to be paired
In hopes that soon
the task might be shared.
The presents all wrapped
and under the tree
bring visions of sounds
of laughter and glee.
I in my flannels
And hubby in sweats
Settle into bed
As the sun sets in the west.
~Peggy Lee HansonT’was the week before Christmas
Another change is coming in the first weeks of January for me. I can choose now, however, how to accept it. Much like three years ago when learning I was to be ousted from of my corporate job, I choose to be proactive and positive. But I also know that I’ll be full of emotions, fears, and questions that no one else can deal with except me, yet knowing I don’t have to go down this path alone.
Luckily, I’ve traveled down this road many times before and have developed my own signature system to get through and well beyond the emotions, fears, and questions. ( Read My Story or go to Thrown Into Transition dot com to learn more.) This process helps retain my sanity – well, what’s left of it, anyway.
Today I will be joining in a bit of holiday fun with my Toastmasters group; we are gathering at another’s home for food, song, and fellowship. Although I enjoy the regular meetings, I look forward to not having that regimen today.
My hope for today is that you find food to feed your mind, song to warm your heart, and fellowship to cheer your soul.
"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
