the challenge of the season...

is not in finding the perfect gift, but rather in finding balance...


please know that i too am struggling with this - so it is not being spoken in a preachy manner...  and as with all things it is how you approach it that matters...

Not only a challenge during this season, but always. Love the new piece.

It happens every year. Eventhough I try to take on only projects that have meaning, and cut items from my to-do and gift lists that no one will miss if they're not done, I still end up in the 'frantic' mode. And every year Christmas arrives and spreads its magical glow no matter what did or didn't get done.

Thanks so much for the sweet message today.

When we seem to need balance most, during the holidays! Lovely piece. I'll try to keep the words in mind when the stress is on! Riki

THAT is what I found in the Christmas season this year...balance. You just made me realize that.

MJ, I missed this post. This year is the first where I actually do feel some balance about the holidays. My little family seems to have all come to the same place and we are thinking more about how much it means to share our lives with each other. That makes me happier than I have ever felt about the holiday season.
