Wanna know a dirty little secret? For all my plotting and planning, all my early shopping and careful Advent preparations, all my reminders to self to smile, be merry, and enjoy Christmas through the eyes of my children… I’m having a less than perfect Christmas Eve Eve. And yesterday, a less than perfect Eve Eve Eve.
I’m not certain about everything that the next few days will bring, but I do know that Perfection is coming… and I can let go.
Let go of the Christmas cards that will have to become New Years cards (again).
Let go of the undone Advent devotions.
Let go of the last minute gift that isn’t a bit meaningful.
Let go of the psychedelic cookie cutouts.
Let go of the dust in my house and on my heart.
Let go of the crankiness and craziness.
Let go of perfection.
I’m choosing this Christmas to embrace my imperfection, allowing the gift of perfection wrapped in swaddling clothes to embrace all of us… again.
