It has always seemed such a quick transition from Thanksgiving to the Christmas season, and when Thanksgiving falls so close to the end of November as it did this year, that transition feels like the blink of an eye.
My original plan was to put out the Christmas decorations this weekend but that will have to be postponed for a week or so. I’ve been trying to live joyfully in spite of being in a CFIDS flare, which means even more rest and sleep time than usual. I am finding that on days like today when I only have a migraine plus the immense fatigue, I can do some kind of household task for 15 to 20 minutes, and then I need to rest for a half hour or so.
Don’t be sad for me though. A good portion of my rest time is spent crocheting, and that makes me happy because I can do something worthwhile! And since we’re approaching Christmas, I’ve been busy with gift projects and that makes me even more happy!
In this season of my life, I don’t get out much. If I do, it’s to the local grocery store where I can do some shopping at the same time I pick up my prescriptions. It’s the closest thing to multitasking I’m able to do these days but it works out great for me.
I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with joy, happiness and gratitude as you gathered around the dinner table with family and maybe friends to thank God for the myriad of blessings He bestows on us each and every day. For those of you who could not be with your family or who were not able to celebrate Thanksgiving for any reason, remember that you are a part of God’s family and as such you are utterly precious in His sight! Remember, He will never leave you or forsake you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified…for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. —Deuteronomy 31:6
Happy December, Beloved!
