Yikes! I just realized that this is my first December post and it is going to be short and sweet...very opposite how the month of December feels at this very moment :)
So, today as I was unloading my very full car (firewood, borrowed mixer, tree stand, bags, more wood, etc.) the word Sparkle hit me like a ton of bricks. That is my word for the rest of 2010 into the Holidays and for 2011. My theme for my life is sparkle. Yep. That's right, sparkle it is and sparkle it shall be.
I am sure you are all rushing around, getting into the holiday spirit and wondering how next year should be less stressful. While you are trying to entertain, trying to get everything packed in before the year end, trying to hit the sales and save money, trying to keep your sanity, think about sparkle.
I am loving this holiday season so much more than last year. I think about how a year ago, I was in a completely different space, both physically, mentally, and emotionally and I have been reflecting on how thankful and grateful I am that I was so incredibly supported by my loved ones including friends and family. My hope is that I will bring grace and joy to those around me this holiday season and know that I get to choose how I create my holiday moments and my sparkle moments.
Here's to sparkle.
