I've decided that I'm going to try and have less stress this holiday season. A big part of my holiday stress every year is self induced. I always worry that my kids will be sick and we'll miss out on family festivities. This year I'm not going to worry myself about it. The most important thing in life is my kids and even if they are sick I'll be with them on the holiday. Last year my daughter was sick for Thanksgiving, my son was sick for two Christmas parties and my husband was sick on Christmas day. You know what? Life went on and we still had nice holidays overall. I think I worry myself sick over it all! I'm going to try my hardest this year to focus on what is most important and take things as they come.
