Living In Gratitude: Holiday To Do List

The holidays are filled with family, food and festive celebration as well as To Do lists that add to our stress and can detract from the enjoyment of the season. From dashing around buying, wrapping and mailing gifts, to planning menus, shopping and preparing food, to making sure we fit in all of the events and parties, we are so busy checking off items on our list that we often lose sight of the meaning of this time of year.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back and rewrite our list. When we change our perspective, that To Do list becomes filled with things the season is really all about.
