Life has been so busy this year that I haven’t even started preparing for the holidays. But I have started thinking about preparing for them. So I’ve at least coordinated our family calendar, etching out time to spend with parents, grandparents, cousins, and siblings! Because other than celebrating what your family believes, it is the family itself that brings the most joy (and sometimes the most chaos) to the holidays.
When it comes to the holidays, here are some quotes that spoke to me.
I don’t need a holiday or a feast to feel grateful for my children, the sun, the moon, the roof over my head, music, and laughter, but I like to take this time to take the path of thanks less traveled. – Paula Poundstone.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. – Hamilton Wright Mabie
Sharing the holiday with other people and feeling that you’re giving of yourself, gets you past all the commercialism. – Caroline Kennedy
May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility. – Mary Anne Radmacher
It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. it is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. – Agnes M. Pharo
Happy Holidays Everyone!
