Merry Post-Christmas

Hello everyone and Merry post-Christmas! I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun, crazy time!

It’s been mad here – two young children running around shredding paper and a kitten scattering it to every corner of the house! Toys piling up – as well as the laundry!

But the best thing about Christmas? For me it’s what I call the ‘Slow-Down’: The break from normality and routine, not worrying about housework, getting to places on time etc – it’s sitting down and being Right Here Right Now, with the children. Being absolutely in the moment with them, enjoying their company and feeling their joy. There is nothing better than that.

It’s something that is easily forgotten in today’s busy lifestyle, and the first thing that takes a back seat. but it’s the thing, above all else, that we should treasure – what do you get more joy from than the company of the person/people you love? Never take them for granted. No matter how busy you are, please, make time for the ‘Slow-Down’. Life is richer for it.

Blessings be for a happy 2013.
