Wish this Christmas Away

I’ve said it countless times in the past few weeks, I have heard friends and family say it countless times in the past few weeks. And I know I will say it again and again through December.

“I just need to get past… Thanksgiving.”

“I just need to get through…this weekend.”


“Once I get my shopping done…once I get my baking done…”

“Once such and such is over, then I can relax…finally breathe…finally enjoy the holidays…”

The holidays have barely started, and already I’m wishing it away. I don’t want to just get by, or get through it. To wish that Christmas was over.

Let’s agree to savor every crazy, busy, hectic, noisy, overwhelming moment.
