The knitting is not finished, but there’s nothing more I can do at this hour; each person has a gift. The presents are not all mailed, but I can’t do anything about it until Monday; I forgot a critical item when we went to the post office in town. The presents here are not all wrapped, but we will finish that shortly. The cookies, pies, breads, and cakes are not all baked, but I will get up early tomorrow and do what I can. And yet, in spite of all this, I do not feel stressed. Nor guilty, nor sad. I truly gave up on making everything perfect and settled for the good this year. Plus, we will have our family over for Christmas – and both Mr. TF and I have the actual day off for the first time in maybe a decade – and we will celebrate together.
May your day be blessed and may you look forward to the returning of the light!
