'Twas the day before Christmas

It's the day before Christmas and I feel relaxed.  All of the festive events are over.  I no longer have to stress about making a dish or getting a gift for an event.  I don't have to worry about shopping for anything else because the Christmas budget is long gone.  Today, I can relax.  The only things I have to do are:  finish a Button Scarf that someone ordered and attend the Christmas Eve service tonight at church.

"Christmas" always stresses me out.  I've thought alot about that this year.  I've come to the conclusion that it's the busy-ness that stresses me out.  All of the parties and events and gatherings.  The gifts I have to buy for those events, the food I have to prepare.  All of that stresses me out.  And this year, money was so tight that wondering how I was going to buy the food for that dish or that extra gift (or, gas for the car so that we could make it to that event) was also stressing me out.  But those events are now over.  We made it to them.  Somehow, everything worked out.  Now, Christmas is almost here and it will be what it will be.  I look forward to the candlelight service tonight at church because, for me, that is Christmas.

Soon, I will have pictures to post, but not today.  I also have new items to add to my Etsy shop.  If you're interested, feel free to visit:

I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas.  If you don't celebrate Christmas, then I wish you & your family a blessed Sunday.
