I've made a decision.

I've decided that I will not spend this Advent season clicking around the internet looking for ways to enhance and enrich our experience of the season (read:  making myself crazy).

I will remember that our Advent last year was wonderful, and by simply maintaining the traditions we already have I'll be respecting the season and my family.

I will seek joy in small things, and do my best to point those around me toward the light of that Babe in the manger.

I will accept the grace that inevitably comes when He blesses my efforts. 

And it will be enough. 


  1. ME TOO!!! I'm sick of trying to stuff everything in and ending up crazy and miserable!!
