Did you all know that you can have a most perfect holiday with your precious family without making Christmas cookies?
Well, I didn't know.
I thought we had to make cookies with Christmas tree, train and elf cookie cutters with Christmas music playing in the background and while wearing our cute baking aprons.
I thought this had to be done at least once during the holiday season in order for the holidays to feel special and complete.
It was only til a moment ago that I found out that I can still have the most amazing, nourishing and meaningful Christmas with my young children without ever touching a cookie cutter.
My mind is blown.
I found out from a little sweet voice in my being that assured me that I do not have to accomplish anything to have a joyous, memorable time. WOA!
I don't have to take my kids ice skating, i don't have to go to the nutcracker all dressed up and take pictures with the tall half wooden, half man nutcracker thing, I don't have to buy everybody their most desired item, I don't need to take staged photos to capture the en of this year or mail off the perfect photo card to everyone i know, I don't have to make envious meals and eat by candlelight laughing at old family tales, I don't have to have to have everything planned, i don't have to know anything,
I DON'T HAVE TO DO
ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T COME FROM
A TRUE DESIRE FROM MY HEART,
FROM MY ENTIRE BEING.
Mind is blown,
and the TRUE joyous holiday ensues.
