What Did You Get For Christmas?

what did you get for christmasI don’t mean to sound cliche here, but I want you to ask yourself two questions:

What did you get for Christmas?


What did you give for Christmas?

It’s great that you received wonderful presents. Most of us — especially those of you who are moms — don’t spend enough time pampering yourself. Enjoy – Bask! – in what other people want to give you.

But at the risk of sounding cliche, think about the joy you got from the new sweater, or mascara, or bottle of nail polish. Now think of the joy you felt when someone you love — your children, your grandma — opened a present that you gave them.

We don’t pamper ourselves enough, it’s true. But the best pampering of all is seeing the joy that you’ve created in the eyes of someone you care about.

And those thoughts are my Christmas gift to you. Thanks for reading.
