I recently came across a sentiment written by David Grayson who lived at the turn of the last century.
He wrote about American rural life under the title Adventures in Contentment.
But I found sympathy with this exerpt:
"I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays--let them overtake me unexpectedly--waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why, this is Christmas Day!"
With a grown family, I have the luxury of drifting into the holidays-
and taking it all in, a little at a time.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!
