I love Christmas. I love baking, addressing cards, wrapping presents, and putting up the tree. Yet, this year, the joy wasn't there. It felt like I was just going through the motions to get things done.
Then while rushing home from work today, "Away in a Manger" came on the radio. Outside my car window, snow was falling, and the world seemed to slow down. As I listened, I could feel my spirit lifting. I could feel Christmas.
It's amazing how a song can change your mood. So, what song gets you in the holiday spirit? I hope you'll share it in the comments. I'll be taking a break from posting for a few weeks so I'll see you again in the new year!
Have a blessed and joyous holiday, and remember to take a little time for yourself!
