And we are off....
It's the most wonderful time of the year, but can turn into the most STRESSFUL time of the year if we do not get our ducks in a row.
I am a planner by nature, and I am so unbelievably excited about this week. I am currently writing this post the week of thanksgiving ( We have a scheduled week off so this means I have a clear head for plotting and planning family fun!)
There is a very STRICT Christmas decorating rule enforced by my sweetie. He does not want to see Christmas decor up until AFTER Thanksgiving. I am really, really, really trying to work with this very scroogy mentality. ( When he is at work I do turn on the Christmas music full blast!)
What I can do is plan, oooooooo I just love to plan! It is seriously one of my greatest joys! With a December calendar full of possibility, a sharp pencil in hand, and a steamy cup of coffee I am ready to take on my intentional vision for creating family fun and togetherness at Christmas!
Mamas are the dreamers, the visionaries, the temperature of the home.
(especially of a person) thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom.
"a visionary leader"
We are the temperatures of our home,
Your attitude becomes the atmosphere.
The energy you bring to your home can make or break the holiday season and beyond. I have been so guilty of bringing a less than wonderful temperature to our home. Luckily I have been filling my mind with life- -giving books, podcasts and mentors to keep me on track! Make sure to take inventory of your attitude not just in the holiday season but EVERYDAY!
Attitude is everything
In one of my readings last week in the Life Giving Table by Sally Clarkson she was touching on Mary and Martha. She said that your attitude in how you are serving is what is important. Serving with a negative cynical attitude completely overshadows the positive task you are trying to accomplish. The attitude of a servant leader is what is going to reach hearts and minds of your family for eternity. This holiday season intentionally plan to set a thermostat of joy and set an example of servant leadership in your home.
