Kids eye view.
I was thinking this morning about our perspective as children. When I woke up, my first thought was, ugh it's Christmas eve. I remembered that I have to put some final touches on cleaning/decorating, I needed to do some baking for tomorrow and wrap some gifts. Procrastination is a snapping turtle that caught me by the butt this morning, as it has done for the last ten years. I used to be organized once upon a time, then I fell into a routine of putting things off.
I started to remember what Christmas eve meant to me as a child. The magic, the wonder, the anticipation, I miss that feeling, it seems so far away now... but eventually we grow up.
If you are celebrating tonight or tomorrow, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. Take the time to enjoy yourself and the people around you. We deserve this break, we deserve some happiness and enjoyment.
