Alice

Ok the tree is up, house is decorated and the Christmas Devotional with the First Presidency has been watched. I woke up today and realized Its only two weeks until Christmas. I just realized oh my heck I haven’t bought any Christmas gifts yet. I need to get busy like fast. We do our best to not make Christmas about all that but still we need some gifts and I’m way behind. Tis the Season I better get on board. I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. Always running behind and need to be somewhere. I want to be more like Alice. Curious and present in the moment. It will pass I only have 10 days left. Then I can be my normal self and back to normal

One thought on “Alice

  1. In junior high I used to buy presents many, many months in advance. It drove me nuts seeing them in drawers and closets for friends and family (wanting to give it the them then & not wait until Christmas). Whether life being too consuming or lack of funds, we are allowed to slack every few Christmases, although it is better to be Alice and in the moment. This last Christmas was the least experienced. least appreciated and or I felt the most unlike myself. It came and went and I felt cheated. I swore to myself that I would never let the holidays pass by me w/o losing myself in the fantastic “thing that it is”. I want a do-oever, but alas that’s not in the cards.
