Choosing no…

This Christmas was one of the most lovely I’ve ever known. It was peaceful and joyous. My own traditions are new, but beginning to feel comfortable.

I enjoy listening to Christmas music all the time, so I do whenever possible.

I enjoy watching Christmas movies on television, and do so when I have time.

I enjoy opening presents on Christmas Eve, and did so.

This year, a friend invited me for Christmas day, and I had a delightful time. Dinner was delicious, and relaxed. We laughed, a lot. We looked at Christmas lights.

What has all this to do with choosing no?

I couldn’t change what others would do, but I could change what I did.

I chose to say no to the drama and guilt. I chose to say yes to peace and joy.


  1. Congratulations on a Peaceful and Joyful Christmas. Today was fun. Thanks for letting me play. 🙂
