Hello everyone. This time of year we all seem to rush around and get ourselves so stressed as so much to do. I am the same and don't have enough hours in a day. Before we went away we had the mess of the kitchen and then we went away. We came home and the rush started getting everything done. Shopping, cards, wrapping and decorations. We have got the kitchen all put back to rights and it is finished. I am on nights so it is all work and bed, but Barrie bless him has got the outside Christmas lights up and they look wonderful. Yesterday before work I got the tree and inside decorations up and I put up our boy's stockings as I could not leave them out.
Last night I went to a lovely old couple were the husband had fallen, they were still so much in love after so many years together and were both in their 90's. I helped the gentleman up and back into a warm bed with his wife fussing round him. He was not worried about himself just that his wife was warm enough.
We got to talking and they asked was I ready for Christmas, I said oh no so much to do yet and so little time. We talked more and they asked about family. I said I had 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and that I was going to see some of them and the greats that lived away from me on Thursday and I was looking forward to it so much.
They asked was I seeing any of them on Christmas day. Yes I am the ones that live near are coming on Christmas day. The old man said... well it seems to me that there is no need to rush and worry, you have many blessings around you and what gets done gets done and what doesn't is not important. You know what he is so right.... The blessings are many and the little things are just nothing to worry about... So I will try and follow that advice and what gets done gets done and what doesn't is not important...
Hope to show you photo's of the great grandchildren when I have visited on Thursday. wait until you see how Alivia has come on since her operation. She is a joy.
So everyone try and follow that old man's advice too.
Love and hugs to all. Carol x
