First priority: Get over being sick for a week.
Second priority: Get ready for a big dinner next Sunday.
Third priority: Catch up on all those things I've let slide since September 1st.
Oh, really? My first priority is always to make sure my priorities are in the right order.
Here's a little story I wrote yesterday, a random essay that was stirred up in my brain while I was opening the Christmas cards that had been sitting on my kitchen counter for several days. Hope you enjoy it.
May you all have a joyful Christmas.
Maybe it's the week-long bout of sinus congestion, coughing and minimal sleep that has contributed to my flighty thoughts this morning, but opening Christmas cards from friends and family made me think about the connection between anxiety and keeping too much stuff.
