It’s the little things…
By Cassandra Carr
It’s December, and that means the holidays, no matter what religion you do (or don’t) practice. The holidays can pass by in a blur of buying, baking, and booking – from house to house or party to party – or they can be a time for quiet reflection on life’s blessings. I understand how hard it is to get everything done but still take time to appreciate the season. After all, I have a child and both sides of my family live in the area, but I do what I can.
During the holidays, it’s the little things that matter – the smile on your child’s face when you let her help with cookie decorating, the thank you from the bell ringer when you throw some spare change into the Salvation Army kettle, or the feeling of connectedness you feel with your family the first time you turn on the lights on the Christmas tree. Those are the things you remember – those are the things that matter.
So if your cookies are overdone or you can’t find just the right present for someone, don’t sweat it. Remember – it’s the little things that count!
What are some of your “little things”?
