Peace

It seems that I am jinxing myself all over the place. 

Shortly after I posted about how "on the ball" I am with everything my day went to pot.  The kids were crazy and sassy.  I was a grouchy, yelling mess.  The day became cluttered with errands and "must do's".  I was running from one thing to another.  Next thing I know I am bawling all over the place about how I don't think I should be allowed around people.  I should be locked away in a room somewhere by myself while my children are raised by a much more compassionate person.  
Ahhhh... the holidays.  I'm so good at making them merry, aren't I?  Good times. 

Hopefully now that I have that out of my system all will be restored and there will be peace throughout the land.  Hopefully.

Hopefully I will find some inner peace this Christmas.  Peace and wisdom to relax and enjoy.  Let the little things go.  Remember what is important.  Cherish what I have, and what the Lord has given all of us.  The greatest gift of all.  The Prince of Peace. 



PEACE

Wishing all of you a season of PEACE and LOVE. May you all have a Blessed Christmas. A Happy Hannukah. A festive Kwanza. And Happy Holidays. Peace to us all!

I have faith that when the time is right over this holiday, you will have attained the peace you desire. Actually, I think you already have but haven't yet recognized it as such. Nevertheless, hope your Christmas is as merry and bright as the tree in your picture and as sweet as those four children parked in front of it can possibly make it! In other words, Hoping it's the best ever for you and the family! Peace.

It is so hard to fince Peace sometimes this time of year. I am struggling with this as well. With all the craziness of so many things to do, places to go, it's easy to get lost. Wishing you and your family all the best!!
...AWESOME PICS of your kids (and Molly) around the tree! what kind of dog is she by the way?

Molly is going to freeze with no hair Kat let it grow a little! You poor thing 4 kids is enough to make any mom yell now and then or daily. In my day we could swat so I didn't yell so much. I'd just pick up my spoon and usually that was enough.
Kat have a wonderful Christmas.

Kat said...

Karen- Ha! You are too funny. Molly's hair is so shaggy right now. It just looks short cuz she has her ears back. Plus it is over 40 degrees around here. Warm for us. She stays out in the backyard playing all day. Not cold. ;)

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
