As you head to town to finish the much dreaded shopping experience of finishing up the last ‘to do’ items on your list, ask yourself this. Did I notice the beautiful scenery on my way to town? Did I wave at others I met on the road? Did I notice the beautiful geese in the sky? For those who are under a bit of stress in order to get all your shopping and baking done before next weekend, I say this… Sit a spell. Take a minute out of your busy day to focus on something you are thankful for – your grandchildren, your job, your co-workers, your church, your home. The list goes on and on. Try to be an observer today and notice your surroundings. Notice the ornaments on your Christmas tree today and enjoy the memories they bring to you. Notice your home and be thankful for a place your family will gather this year to celebrate our Savior’s birth. Notice the moms who are trying to shop with two toddlers tugging at her leg and offer her a helping hand. And if you notice dust on the furniture, keep in mind that if you dust it today, you’ll just have to do it again before company arrives. So why not dust later and take notice of a few more important things today. J
*thought for the day*
“Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more." (Theodor Seuss Geisel, "The Grinch")
