It’s almost Christmas. I hope life isn’t too frantic for you. When I look back on life, there is one thing I will always regret and wish I could do over, it’s that I worried too much about shopping, decorating and all the myriad of things to do while planning for Christmas and the holidays
Enjoy with family
I should have spent more time with my family while I had them at home. Instead, I let the numerous tasks overwhelm me and take up too much precious time that I should have shared with my loved ones. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Take time to enjoy the holidays with your family.
