So true Zen Mama. I too find myself trying to find the balance between the happy chaos of the season and outright insanity. I heard a talk recently where the speaker was talking about "preperation" and how much of our lives is spent in preperation. It has really hit home for me this Christmas season. Virtually the whole two months of November and December are spent in preperation.

So, even at this late date, I am trying to slow down and enjoy the days of preperation. At least a little bit each day. And crossing a few things off my list always helps.

You're so right - it feels like it is ALL about the preparation. Almost like planning a big wedding, then poof - it's all over in a few hours.

There has GOT to be more mindfulness along the way....how does that expression go? It's about the journey, not the destination.

I really need to remember to work at being IN THE MOMENT, so AS we are baking cookies or WHILE I am writing out Christmas cards, I am enjoying myself. I think/know I will get more out of this wonderful season that way (and much less stress as well)!
