Holidays Are Here

With all of the commotion going on, it can be easy to get flustered during the holiday season. Here are a few tips that can help you.

With the holiday season in full effect, what's a frazzled, single parent to do?  For starters, take a deep breath!  Just because the holidays are here does not mean that you have to lose sight of what is most important - your child and of course your sanity. 

Many people tend to believe that the holidays are only about material things.  So they get caught up in the idea of shopping for the right gift, and lose sight of the true magic of the holiday season.  It's not about material gifts, it is always about taking stock of what is most important, and giving thanks for those blessings that God bestowed upon you throughout the year.  

Did you know that you are probably always giving a gift to someone?  Sharing a conversation, disseminating knowledge and wisdom as well as preparing a meal are all gifts that most of us give on a daily basis.  So don't get flustered this holiday season over "the best gift" to buy for your loved one. Know that the best gifts are the ones that money can't buy!

May you find peace and joy during this holiday season.
