As the Christmas season approaches, we're all hit with a flurry of things to do and things to buy. Already this year, we've spent hours setting up our Christmas tree, putting up decorations, sending out Christmas cards and running from store to store, or shopping online, to find that "perfect" thing for every person in our family.
It seems every conversation is focused around the season, too. "What should we do for Christmas Eve?" "Do you think so-and-so would like this-or-that?" "Do we have enough holiday bucks to do one more thing?" :)
But this season, amidst all the craziness, we must not forget one very important truth: the greatest gift we can give each other is time.
Take time out of the busy-ness and have some non-Christmas conversation. Discuss what's on your mind and your goals and dreams. Rather than running to a store, go for a walk in the park--even if it's cold. I think you'll find it's the perfect breath of fresh air to get you into the true spirit of Christmas.
