It is a little sad to take down all the Christmas decor....I'm not quite ready to do it...yet I am. I'm ready for a little order and organization in my house. I felt like once Dec. 1st hit...I had roller skates on rushing through each day and a pace that was way toooooooo fast! big smile. Can you relate?
My little farmhouse cottage had turned into an event planning extravaganza...whether we were ready or not!
This year is bringing quite a bit of change for my husband and I! Our children are all in college...and they are loving it...which soothes my soul.
But we have begun adding onto our house to make things ready for my dear parents who will be moving in with us. They are ready for the move in some ways and yet not sure in other ways.
Our Christmas was precious in that it was the last time celebrating with everyone at "Grandma's house." But now there are certain circumstances that are requiring us to pull together wisely and work on navigating through this season...successfully. I believe that when you honor your parents....it is a good thing. You can honor them by cooking a meal, providing security in an un-secure time, a phone call...loving them when the future seems uncertain and assure them you will be there for them.
They will be moving in on the ground floor so that they don't need to climb stairs....when you are in your eighties this is never easy...climbing...
We will move upstairs and change things around to suit us...instead of the current play station, tv, game room! Big smile.Hubby says I can decorate the entire upstairs however I want...it will be the master bedroom and bathroom now....for years it has been the kids hangout....remember all the cords, remote controls, computers, and play stations? I'm sending them all back with the kids! Big smile!
