Happy November 29th! Did you survive Thanksgiving? Good, now brace yourself for Christmas.
Hmmm… That doesn’t seem quite right. Maybe we all (me included) need to think bigger.
Here’s one of my all-time favorite YouTube videos and it’s about The Advent Conspiracy. Regardless of your religious persuasion, I hope you’ll find something meaningful in its message.
The season of Advent is about preparing for new beginnings. It’s about preparing for the transforming power of love. It’s about having hope, joy, peace and love in the middle of the darkest time of the year.
You don’t need to be in the mall today. You could be baking cookies with your kids, going for a walk with your husband, or caring for yourself and taking a nap.
December 1st is when Advent starts, and it doesn’t need to start with your wallet.
Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now, especially since I’m as guilty as anyone! But this December, I’m going to strive to do better. I hope you’ll join me.
Stay tuned, for fun ideas to come!
