Last week I turned on my car radio to hear "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". What...Christmas music already??? And it is NOT beginning to look a lot like Christmas...everywhere I go I still see pumpkins, beautiful fall leaves still on the trees, and grass covered in leaves-- not snow. We still have Halloween candy and decorations in our house. When I look out my window, this is what I see (don't mind the wrinkly tablecloth) :
But then you go shopping...and yep...Christmas everywhere! Good luck finding any Thanksgiving items among all the Christmas decorations. Come on, let a mom catch her breath! I just got done assembling Halloween costumes. What happened to Thanksgiving? We go right into "I want" mode and forget about the "I'm thankful" part of November. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE Christmas, but I also like to pause and think about all that I am blessed with before jumping right into lights, trees, presents, wrapping paper, and especially Christmas music!
