Most of us are gearing up for the holidays. Some of you are like me, and I’m currently projectile vomiting excitement and anxiety. Some don’t think that’s a thing. Trust me, it is. *sigh*
I LOVE this quote! One of the most beautiful gifts I get is having the chance to help others. I want my kids to feel the same. So this year, I finally was able to find a place where my whole family can be involved. On Thanksgiving we will be honored to serve dinner at a local women and children’s shelter. And I’m so excited I’m not sleeping well! I’ll cook our traditional meal on Friday. I’m looking forward to planting the giving seed deeper in my children. It’s so important that they know the joy of helping others.
And here’s the anxiety part. The other half of why I’m not sleeping. Specifically number 2. I’ve been working really really hard not to let lack of interest in my kids and I bother me. It sucks and on some days, I’m scrambling to deal. In my head I know I need to not give a crap. I need to focus on those who do love us and invest themselves in us. Emotionally it’s a different story. But I’m still working on it. And I recommend you do as well. It’s not worth your time, energy, and peace. And if they don’t like it, you can eat them too. 😉
