Is it Christmas time already?
I just finished a book deadline and let me tell you, there were no Christmas decorations in my house until Tuesday. In an odd sort of way, I enjoyed decorating a little bit later in the month. I’ve never been one to decorate right after cleaning up my Thanksgiving meal, although there are plenty of people who can’t wait to finish off the pumpkin pie so they can put up their tree. There is plenty of excitement early on in the season this way.
But as I pulled out the boxes of snowmen and holiday cheer to decorate, I had a pleasant day. No stress. No hurrying. No where to be. I took my time for the first time in years. I think I might start a new tradition.
As for another new tradition, I downloaded some Christmas books as a present to myself. Maybe my stress-free zone has allowed me to sit back and enjoy reading this season. The books I’ve read so far have been wonderful. I’ve been able to sit back with a good book, hot tea and become immersed in the holiday season.
I’d like to wish you all a very, Merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your family and friends. Take a moment to remember the Reason for the Season. I look forward to another awesome year with my fellow Heartwarming authors and incredible readers. You guys are the best!
