Are you getting in to the holiday mood? Or is it the holiday rush? Perhaps the word panic could even be used to describe what we women face when we enter the next six weeks or so. Gotta have that perfect Thanksgiving with all of the trimmin’s looking as if a magazine photographer is ready to point and shoot. And the house…don’t forget the house. It must also be picture perfect. Ahem…and clean. You know, wIth kids cooperating instead of demolishing your straightening efforts. What about the relatives? Ahh…. the relatives. Again we want perfection. No arguing. No back-handed comments about your homemade pumpkin pie. No dysfunction. Right?
What a set up for disappointment!!!! Let’s pinky swear sistas, that we will strive this holiday season for progress, not perfection. Yes, we want to make memories and perform our womanly tasks as efficiently as possible, but we’d also like a little sanity to boot!!
Well, I’d like to do my part. So, beginning next Monday, December 1st, I’ll be hosting a 12 Days of CHRISTmas giveaway right here on my little ole’ blog. Each day December 1-12, in addition to giving you some of my most requested yuletide ideas and easy recipes, I’ll also be featuring one of my fellow Proverbs 31 speakers in a short profile and asking them a holiday question. Then, you answer the same question by leaving a comment and you will be entered into the giveaway. Each day will have a different present for you; a helpful book, an inspirational cd, a fooffy-girly gift or giftcard for a Starbucks. The purpose is to give you ideas and a small cyber-break from the hustle and bustle at your house.
Be sure to hop on over!!!
I’ll be waiting, with fruitcake in hand!!
