'Tis the season to be Hysterical. To avoid that end, I am working at being positive, and cheery. Sunny you might say.
We went shopping today, not for Christmas, because like everyone else, we are Scaling Back this season. Retailers are having a hard time keeping on the Sunny Side. With the exception of Trader Joe's, all the stores we visited were all eerily empty, with sales everywhere. This year, instead of piles of presents we are going to try to play games, get along with each other and maybe give some home-made or white elephant gifts. Anything for a laugh. Of course we will also eat.
There is so much to worry about in the world, I am working to remember that there are still things to be exceedingly grateful for, in my immediate environment. Maybe I will do a Good Deed or three, to feel like there is Something in this world I can do to make it a little Better.
