Turtle Knows Best... Or Does He???
I think Turtles have the right idea - they sleep through most of the winter. What a life!
Okay... So there are some things I would miss out on if I slept through the winter:
Christmas! I do love Christmas. I love to buy gifts for for friends and family and what better excuse than Christmas?! And I love to watch my kids get all excited - especially on Christmas Eve. I enjoy watching them as they look for gifts for their siblings and their dad too. I also love the lights and the decorations. Though I can't say I decorate a whole lot, I do love look at how others decorate!! Sometimes, in my busy-ness I forget to enjoy these things... But deep down I do love them. Oh, and who could forget gingerbread houses?! My kids always look forward to those! How 'bout it Martha? Are you game for doing gingerbread houses this year???? Watching "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Carol" and all of our other Christmas movies is something else we look forward to each year. We don't allow our kiddos to watch those movies until Thanksgiving and then away they go after New Years so it's something we look forward to each year... Guess I don't want to miss out on all of that!
My daughter's birthday is in January. She'll be 16 - can you believe it??? And I certainly wouldn't want to miss her 16th birtday!!! So I don't suppose I will sleep through that either. Maybe the turtle really doesn't know best after-all....
I never did much for Valentines Day. Maybe I should put more effort into that holiday and that would be one more thing to look forward to in the winter time. Anyone got any suggestions? I'm afraid I'm not very romantic - but I suppose I could work on it. LOL.
Any suggestions for making winter time more enjoyable would be greatly appreciated!!
Well, I suppose I won't sleep through the winter... but attempt to make the most of it. And enjoy those special moments with the family God has blessed me with.
