...for major stress!
As much as I love, love, LOVE Christmas, it's been really difficult to not get overwhelmed this December.
(And it doesn't help that my office's two big events are this weekend...ahh!)
When talking to my sister-in-law about this (bless her heart, she's a lawyer and I just remind myself of that when I think that my PR job is hard...), she reminded me that it's okay to not do everything.
Do any of you have this issue?
I think, especially as a new wife (with a type-A personality), that I want to make everything perfect: the perfect gifts, the perfect dinners at night for my hubs, the perfectly clean house, the perfectly perfect Christmas.
I've been praying a lot about this lately, that God will allow me to relinquish my desire for control...and for me, that's a HUGE thing. He has allowed me to realize that it doesn't matter how the folded clothes get put up, as long as they do; that it's A-okay to make tomato soup and grilled cheese for dinner
that you see at the grocery store 2.5 seconds before you make it when you really have oven-fried chicken, mashed potatoes and broccoli on the "menu"; and that the bed doesn't have to be made every day.
So sister-in-law, thank you for this humbling lesson. That said, anyone want to unload my dishwasher?
