TGIM- This is Christmas Week! 



I still have to buy a few more Gift Cards people won’t use…. just a few more gifts.. a few more presents to wrap perfectly that no one will appreciate.  A Busier time… if I just had more time….I could do so much more…  So much to do, the Tree has to be perfect for no one that cares… traditions without meaning that must be observed!  I just don’t have the time this week!

Man what a busy time of the year… we are WAY too busy to take…


60 minutes to have a neighbor over to catch up with them.


30 minutes to play a board game with a child.


20 minutes to just sit by yourself and think of all your Christmases past.


15 minutes to read the nativity story of Luke in the Bible on your own or to a child.

(((( 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night. 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
2:10 And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

That’s my FAVORITE PART.  I would of freaked out!  Just sitting there being shephards and then BAM!

Fear not?  Yeah Right! ))))


14 minutes to write a handwritten letter to 3 customers on how much they mean to you and mail them.  They do pay for your salary!…and I don’t just mean salespeople and store leaders!


13 minutes to call an old friend to wish them a Merry Christmas.


9 minutes to talk to a relative you tend to avoid at the Christmas celebration.  (You know the one!)


5 minutes to count your blessings.  YOU CAN’T BE BLESSED AND STRESSED!


1 minute to buy that person in the drive through behind you their meal or coffee.  Make their day!


20 seconds to tell people MERRY CHRISTMAS and do it with enthusiasm and passion.




10 seconds to hold a door for someone and wish them a Merry Christmas.


We are so “caught up in the Christmas Spirit” we don’t have time to do any of that.

Ironic ain’t it?
