Well those of you who read my blog know I've been working very "persistently" as my husband describes it on his biography. Hoping to have it printed out and ready to send to family before Christmas, today I got an email from UPS saying they have been so busy with packages that they won't get around to printing my books until Dec 29th. Grr! That's was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT for me but I've decided to let it go and focus on other things. It will be a NEW YEAR'S GIFT instead. We've already sent money to family for them to pick out their own Christmas gifts-that saves them being disappointed by whatever we had selected.
It seems to me that part of the HOLIDAY BLUES that many experience this time of year is because of disappointments. That's an interesting word dis-appointments or expectations not met. Seems life is full of them but something else always comes along to amuse, frustrate or challenge us instead of what we are expecting. True to my MOTTO-act don't react I'm trying to focus on other things that are in my control and projects not yet completed like organizing all the Floyd photos to upload online and label so others in the family can see and enjoy them. I'm in the process of trying to SIMPLIFY my life with less things to do. Easier said than done.
