3 purple lies

Christmas time is here.

And I'm back to blogging.
It's been great reading through the different ideas of the Mommies and I always learn a thing or two each time.  I think the most important lesson that one could take away from this is that we're all in the same boat and if we were to keep that in mind; that we're all fighting the same fight, then maybe we'd be less critical and hard on each other.
We need to appreciate each other's talents more and seek inspiration in what others do.
That's my thought anyway.

And us, over here in Simairland?  Well...we've been slacking.  I have done nothing in comparison to my other years of Christmas prep.  No 12 days of Christmas, no cookie makings, no drives through the Enchanted Forest....nothing.  Why?  Well I think the tole of singleparenting during the week, a month of a sick household, sleepless nights, fulltime jobs and not enough time has taken over my Christmas prep brain.
Do I feel less festive and prepared?  Absolutely not.
I've come to terms with the fact that I didn't necessarily kick Cmas' butt.  But that is mostly because of a words of some wise old friends.  When feeling down about my efforts this year, I just happened to be chatting with my BFF, Christy, who had just happened to be chatting to our other BFF, Sara about Christmas traditions.  Sara raised an interesting point that it takes until a kid is about 6 or 7 to truly embrace traditions.
So I have some time.  And even if I didn't do much this year to enhance our traditions, our kids will spend a wonderful Christmas weekend surrounded by a family that absolutely loves them.
And when it comes to it, that's all that Christmas is really about.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
