Christmas Wrapped: Time to let go and enjoy the holidays

Christmas Wrapped

My final contribution to Target’s Christmas Wrapped site implores everyone to forget the last-minute Christmas cramming. It’s time to let go and enjoy the holidays.

This post was inspired by a wonderful, heartbreaking conversation I had with a long-distance relative yesterday — her 14 year-old daughter is suffering from the effects of Lyme Disease. It was painfully clear to me just how much connection and gratitude trump fantasies of Christmas “perfection.”

Here’s to happy, healthy holidays and safe travels for us all.

    That was a beautiful post. It’s true that a phone call can mean so much. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
