Christmas is Stalking this Mom!

OK~ Do you ever feel as though you are being stalked? Well, I'm beginning to wonder if the calendar and Christmas is stalking me. Everywhere I go, there are Christmas trees, cards, garland, and holiday lights. WHAT? This is November 6th folks! If my calculations are correct we have something like 50 days until Christmas. OK, some may argue that the weather is nice or we must have all of this in the stores in order to sell it! A couple weeks ago I walked through Wal-Mart (my favorite love/hate store), I turned around and Santa was sitting on a sleigh, looking for a home in a yard. Halloween had not even arrived! Yes, Christmas is stalking me- This Mom has decided to not think about Christmas (yet), and try to enjoy the Fall season. And once I do start thinking of Christmas, I will look for a manger scene- isn't that what Christmas is supposed to be about? I am not against the decor that goes along with the Celebration of the Birth of Baby Jesus, but it would be nice if the "want" factor was removed from Christmas!

Challenge to all of us: Take a moment out of each day and go out of our way to be "nice" to someone! Wouldn't it be nice if we could be like that each and every day! After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I love to meet new moms online! You should like a neat family. I too wonder when the Holy Days turned into Holiday!!??!! It has become very commerical and worldly in many ways when it should be all about Jesus!

    We have had a lot of rain here and so a warm sunny day was just the ticket. We enjoyed sitting by the pond and watching God's creative genius and lovely creations.

    Blessings.

  2. Hehe, so funny that you posted this - I was just feeling like I was "behind," as far as my Christmas planning/shopping/etc. Glad to know that Im not the only one who just wants to ENJOY the holiday season, and allow it to unfold naturally. I loooove Xmas and all, but I'm not in a rush for it to be here just yet. Sheesh!
