There are now only a couple of weeks left until Christmas, but I wonder if we're missing the actual days because we're busy looking forward. Believe me, I get that the anticipation is a big part of Christmas. But sometimes I feel like I'm so worried about what I have left to do, tomorrow, next week, that I miss the present day. So I'm going to take a moment each day to stop and notice today (as in each day that is today when I stop) and appreciate it. Perhaps I'll make myself a cup of hot chocolate or sit and watch a film that I haven't for a while. And I hope you will join me in stopping and noticing and making each day special for you rather than missing them in the hopes that Christmas day will be special enough for all of the days you miss (which I can guarantee it won't be).
