...and forget what we are stressed about, worrying over, and fretting for.
Today in Target, the Smallest Drama Princess on the Planet was playing with a squeaky toy we were buying for our dog, Oliver, for his Christmas stocking.
Walking through the Christmas section, where all those stressed-out shoppers were frantically trying to figure everything out, she pipes up:
"Is dat gettin' annoying, Mom?"
I giggled and answered that Yes, it was getting annoying.... naturally, the surrounding area was full of people laughing and smiling in our direction.
Sometimes, a small child can remind you not to take yourself so seriously.
Remember to savor the simple things, let go of the heavy burdens, and enjoy the season of JOY!
