I have enjoyed Christmas music and shows on Hallmark, but I just can not get motivated to bake cookies, shop, get cards ready, etc. I truly can't find my holiday spirit this year much. Maybe it is because I know that my husband always wants to shop often because he loves the last minute hustle and bustle, maybe it is because I know he is impossible to buy for and I dread shopping for him, maybe it's because the kids are each moved on now. I do not know but I almost will be glad to see the holiday over and I love this time of the year normally.
My tree is up, some presents are bought, and the grand baby is going to be spoiled another year. I just wish I could find the love and peace that should abound this time of the year. UGH!! I am sure that others often feel this way, but for me it truly is the first year that my holiday spirit is zero.
Well, I must go and check on a carrot cake that I am baking this early Sunday morning and spend some time in the word of God. That always makes my life a little brighter. Love you all! Merry Christmas
