Thanksgiving is behind us. So is Christmas.
Only one more holiday to go, New Year’s Day!
Then, after we get past the first of the new year, we can settle down again. We’ll put away the decorations, return unwanted gifts, get to spend a few nights at home, and try to figure out a way to pay the bills for all the “specialness” that we enjoyed over the last month or so.
And, oh, let’s not forget that we will need to create a list of resolutions for the new year ahead. We will definitely want to lose weight, exercise more, spend less time on social media, and spend more quality time with God and our family.
Whew! I’m tired! How about you?
I’m tired just typing those words and thinking about the effort we’ll put forth in the weeks ahead.
Does the end of one year and the beginning of the next really have to be that way? Do we have to rush and hurry and overspend and over plan every minute of every day?
