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.
The idea of adventure in contentment amused me.
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.
It won't take us by surprise, but I'm wishing contentment for us all!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!
