Dec. 22

Rereading yesterday's blog I see I needed an editor. Sigh. (It should have been strangely not strangle.) Some people are so good at editing. I admire them and sometimes envy their ability. I know from years of experience that no matter how many times I check, double check, and triple check there will always be copy edits needed in my work. But I don't over worry the matter. I've been copy edited by professionals only to have other people come behind and find things they missed. We are human beings and mistakes happen. So, I try not to sweat the small stuff.

It should be the same for the holidays. The best holidays are not when all the presents are perfect and perfectly wrapped, the food perfect, the parties perfect, etc. The best holidays are simply times for families to get together to play board games or watch movies and spend time together.

(To me the best sugar cookies are a little too crisp around the edges.) So, don't sweat the small stuff, no one remembers that anyway. Cheers~


  1. I only try to make one thing perfect for Christmas, so if anything else goes according to plan, it feels great!
    And don't worry about a typo now and then. I'm an awful speller, so I do it all the time.

  2. Hi L. Diane, thanks for stopping by. I think your way of Christmas-trying to make one thing perfect and if anything else goes according to plan, great-is a great way of looking at life. Thanks for sharing. Cheers~
