Can you believe Christmas is in ONE week? What?
My kids are officially out of school and yesterday was the Christmas party. I offered to help and ended up planning it (um, I need to focus more on my best yes, right?). But it was SO much fun. I love kids Christmas parties. Well, I love parties period but it is so much fun to watch Christmas with children. They listened to The Night Before Christmas and made Christmas ornaments and had treats and gave and received gifts. What fun!
So today’s little video blogging exercise took place by the trunk of my car as I prepared to unload for the party. I heard Shauna Niequist say this about hospitality: They should leave feeling better about themselves than they do about you. So that’s what I kept at the front of my mind when the prideful part of myself began to worry about what the other moms would think about my store bought cupcakes or my crumpled work clothes or my bizarre pretzel trees. All I could think was, I want the kids to feel better about themselves when they leave this party. And who cares if they even remember me.
We’re nearing the finish line friends, I hope you’re actively seeking in this busy last week to find meaning in the mayhem:
