A Christmas Manifesto

Here's to the Holiday...I hope to keep the spirit of Christmas evident this year.  I want to focus on the Reason for the Season.  I hope to encourage those around me  to want to embrace the season. I want my children to be aware of the purpose of the season.  I hope to make time each day for me in reflection of the day and how I am keeping this time a time of reflection and enjoyment.

Every year I look forward to keeping a journal of pictures and writing to focus on Christmas the past and the present, the good and the bad.  It has made want to try new things(advent calendar) and understand my past as well.  I will try to post some of my pages here.  I will probably blog about the prompt though.   I have not finished a journal yet but have fun trying.    If you like to join me in doing a journal just click on one of the journal your christmas links.  It will take you to Shimelle's blog to join the class.   The best thing about this class is it is perpetual.  Once you buy the class you take every year for no additonal cost.  It was the best money spent to keep me present in the moment during this busy Christmas season.

It's my first year doing JYC and I love that Shimelle makes her classes free to alumni. I feel like there's no pressure to "finish" anything this year; I can just enjoy and it will be there next year if I need to pick up where I left off.
