I was talking with a friend this morning and it got me thinking… that some of us may be feeling a bit of extra pressure this time of year.
Maybe pressure to…
find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list
attend school functions
care for friends and family
donate to worthy charities
and donate time too
look great for holiday parties
deck the halls.. and the yard.. and maybe the family pet
cook and bake from scratch
select the perfect host/hostess gift(s)
get out a fantastic family Christmas card
maybe with a letter included as well
wrap your gifts perfectly
… and I’m sure a million others things I didn’t think of, all on top of our everyday obligations.
Well, I never want stopping here to make you feel pressure… or give you a false sense that I have everything together. I don’t. Example: my house is small, which overall is fine. But while it sometimes looks like this…
it more often, looks like this…
because we live in our house, and I like to craft. And since I insist on pulling all my crap out in order to make the smallest craft. You know… because I just might need whatever I didn’t get out. You too? I knew I liked you!!
I guess what I’m trying to say is, do what you can with what you’ve got.
Be it time, money or creative energy. And then, the hard part… be content that what you have put out there is enough.
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you this, but in case you do.

If you just take away from this post a little sigh of relief, or print this and put it at your desk, on your fridge or frame for a friend, I hope we can support each other and know that we are
all doing our best
and it is Good Enough!!
Much love and hugs for a peaceful holiday season.
