This is such a busy time of year! I admire my friends who are ready for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. They are the ones who plan ahead and seem to always be organized. I tend to live in the moment, savoring the last of Thanksgiving before heading into a family birthday and then eventually Christmas. Every year I purpose to change, but I never do. I suppose that deep down I enjoy the preparation involved in the Christmas festivities. This week, the tree has been bought and is waiting for lights and decorations. Menu ideas are being written on lists for Christmas day. Plans are being made for out of town guests. And last minute Christmas presents wait to be bought. Candy Cane Lane tea is being enjoyed by cupsful! This really is the season of JOY!
