So, Thanksgiving is around the corner and then Christmas. . .ready or not! If we look past the expectations and time constraints, though, what a great time of year. I can remember past Christmases way back to when I was a little girl. Family gatherings, special gifts, great food, games and being couch potatoes-brings a smile to my face. No matter what else is going on, time with family and friends provides a welcomed escape from the rest of life’s demands. Instead of taking a deep breath, exhale and enjoy the season!
