Only one shopping day left!!!!
Ok.... I haven't lost it, I do know how to count, and I do realize that technically, there is still one more shopping day left after today.... we'll get to that tomorrow :)
Please, just humour me for today.... Look at today like it is your last shopping day. Use it wisely to do any last-minute store shopping; driving here, there and everywhere; and impatiently standing in line with others just like you....
I have no gift ideas for today, other than to give of yourself and maybe pay-it-forward. Treat someone to a coffee, a perfect stranger.... give up your spot in line to someone who's arms are overflowing, because when it comes down to it, you've left everything to the last minute, it can't get any worse.... Keep your emotions in check, and remember what the season is all about.... Spread the holiday cheer by wearing a smile even if you don't feel like smiling; say Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas to everyone you make eye contact with.... You'll be amazed at just how happy you'll be just by simply spreading the love....
For me, Christmas is not about the presents.... it's about time.
The time we spend with our friends and family. Times past that we reflect upon.
We think we have so much of it, but we do very little of actually enjoying it. So, finish your shopping, as quick as possible with that cheer-filled smile plastered on your face.... then when all is said and done, go and be with the ones you love.... There's no greater gift you can give someone than the gift of your time....
Tomorrow is another day, but spend your time wisely.... stay tuned ;)
