On My Mind

What Mad Dash?

We have another deb ball, both of the girls’ birthdays, and Christmas all in the next two weeks, and weirdly, I’m not overwhelmed. Despite the fact that I’ve barely shopped, I’m completely Zen this December. It helps that we haven’t had to dig out of a snow storm yet, my kids have very few items on their lists, and Madame Paulette cleaned the dress perfectly after the first ball. Without the usual pre-holiday angst, coupled with my baffling procrastination, I’m thoroughly enjoying each event and party. However, my Christmas cards won’t go out until January—oh well.

  • It took me some years but ultimately learned that panic and stress never solved anything. Eat, drink, be merry, enjoy the blessings of time with family and friends and the simple beauty and pleasures of the holy season. I also love to attend at least one traditional choral program, preferably at a beautiful church or cathedral. It brings meaning to the month.
