Holiday Balance

On Friday night, Ed and I attended the Annual Dinner for his EAA Chapter.  This was a nice sit down dinner with great speakers, fun awards, and tasty though slightly cool food.   I was thrilled to see a lot of people I hadn’t seen since last year and I made new friends.

Saturday afternoon I attended the annual Pot Luck of my romance writers chapter.  There was a wonderful variety of food and lots of chocolate.  It was in a private home and there was laughter and hugs, and a lot of conversations centered on the publishing world and exciting new technologies.

On Sunday afternoon, we left out home and walked next door for a gathering of neighbors on our street.  This also had a wonderful array of treats, lots of chatting, games and laughter.  Of the three parties, I totally recommend the private home venue!

This weekend also made me realize how blessed we are, to have this balance in our lives now.  While I thrived on the excitement and stress of holidays in the past, I’ve totally earned this!  I used to have to remind myself the holidays were about celebrating and sharing.  Now that truly is the focus.

Which is a good thing because the special projects I’m creating for our family this Christmas are taking longer than I expected.  But I’ve got the time and am enjoying the process.
