I wish you all a Merry Christmas, filled with quality time spent with the people you love. It’s not about the gifts for me. It’s about the gift of baby Jesus and salvation. Christmas has become so commercialized that people lose sight of the reason for the season.
I prefer to spend a simple day with my family, and just feeling blessed by having them in my life. There are no material items that could give that joy. However, this year we are making room in the family room for a hammock stand, and the gift or relaxation for the family will bring much joy for years to come!
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house…well, you know the rest. There has always been a magical feeling about Christmas eve that I never outgrew. I like to be the only one awake when the house is quiet, and not a creature is stirring..
I enjoy sitting in my swinging hammock chair, right next to the Christmas tree. Right now, the lights from the tree are the only lights on in the entire house. I just sit and swing, and give thanks for my family that I love, being safe and sound, in my warm house. Maybe I also (secretly) hope to catch a glimpse of Santa!
It’s already the last shopping weekend before Christmas! It’s raining where I live, and I am warm and dry in my house. I am so thankful I do not need to be out and about, involved in the craziness of last minute shopping! First of all, I try to eliminate craziness to start with, by just eliminating some of it, like hosting parties, baking cookies, etc,, keeping it simple. This year, my family is choosing to spend a weekend in New York and enjoy a couple Broadway shows instead of gifts.
I also only buy for a few select people and I basically plan ahead all year. When I find something for my special people, I buy it then and save it. Then I sit in my cozy hammock chair and order the rest online!
A hammock chair fits in most houses, so they can relax right away, even if it’s cold outside! They will thank you forever!
