I wish I didn't have a touch of the grinch. I love being busy. And I'm SO busy this time of year. I just hate that sometimes it's an obligated, time-is-running-out, better get it done or feel terrible kind of busy. I need a little less grinch and a whole lot more true holiday cheer.
My cousin just posted this on her blog and I couldn't have said it better:
"I really just want to feel a little of that *PEACE* that only can be gained I suppose by constant reflection upon our Savior, and gratitude for His birth, life, and sacrifice on our behalf. My goal this next two weeks (ack! is that all that's left?!) is to focus on the things that can't be bought, or made even, that can be gained only through quiet contemplation. I sincerely hope you are all having PEACE at this hectic time".

Congratulations on bucking stereotypes. Now go show some foreigners how smart Americans can be.
You're To Kill a Mockingbird!
by Harper Lee
Perceived as a revolutionary and groundbreaking person, you have
changed the minds of many people. While questioning the authority around you, you've
also taken a significant amount of flack. But you've had the admirable guts to
persevere. There's a weird guy in the neighborhood using dubious means to protect you,
but you're pretty sure it's worth it in the end. In the end, it remains unclear to you
whether finches and mockingbirds get along in real life.
