Aw, gees, it 's been one of those weeks--nothing is easy and anything that happens to land on my desk just sorta explodes. I'm trying hard to excuse it all as the week before the holiday...but it's trying my patience. Frustration is high and morale is low--in spite of the Gingerbread House Decorating Contest in the lunchroom. Sigh.
I have been trying to watch holiday specials on TV each night, just to keep the feeling of the season in my heart, while trying to forget the stresses of the day. While I post this each year around this time, I just think it captures the spirit of Christmas for me--a little reminder of the birth of Jesus, the joy of the season, and a wee bit of sweet mixed in.
I like Joseph's face upon hearing Mary's news, the second innkeeper, and the star--I love the star....
It gets harder, doesn't it, when your desk is piled high with work, to try to keep the meaning of the season in the forefront? I hope this helps--it has certainly helped me.
