There's so much to do, so much to give. And only so much you can take.
This time of year gets crazy busy, and it's easy to lose yourself—and not in a good way.
Last year my daughter and I wrote a song together that blended our shared thoughts about Christmas and what we've done to it. And what that does to us.
The time of year is hard. Gray skies. Long nights and short days.
You just want to hibernate. Wake up when it's spring.
Even the sun seems to hide.
We try to to make it up with lights, parties, gifts, food—lots and lots of food, and busyness.
Christmas becomes crazy.
Take a break from the busyness.
Enjoy the moments. Enjoy your family and friends.
And take a breath.
