Just because it’s the holiday season, doesn’t mean we automatically wake up in the morning feeling comfort and joy. Shopping, cooking, wrapping, sending gifts, traveling, and extra commitments can really put us in a tailspin. What’s your style when it comes to dealing with holiday stress?
This is my favorite holiday card of all time:
Why do I love this card so much? Because Jack’s parents were brave enough to send it. What it shows is that life isn’t always perfection, despite what we read on Facebook. Some days we just want to cry. But, hopefully, this too will pass.
This image reminds us that everything can’t always be perfect. But if we seek out small slices of joy (gladness and gratitude) every day, we surely will find them.
Jack, thanks for showing us that no one promised merry and bright every day.
Wishing you a Joyous Christmas!

I love Christmas and it takes me about 5 days to put up my tree and decorate my house. My best strategy to help overcome the stress of decorating in addition to church activities, parties, baking, and sending Christmas cards is to start early. This year I put up my tree and decorations the second week of November. My biggest motivation was that I was going to be out of town the end of the month. I knew I would come home and see everything done and that’s a huge stress reliever. Plus I get to enjoy this special season a little longer. Merry Christmas to you and all your readers.
