Muffins with Mom – Dashing through the house

Dashing through the house, ready for visitors on the way,
Planning a meal for them to eat and games for them to play.
Before my son arrived home from college for the holiday season, I told him everything was the same as it was when he left…a mess. He arrived just in time to help prepare for the family, pre-Christmas dinner.
I waited for help with game ideas for our dinner, but instead, my teen boys were busy dashing through the house playing. From another room I heard the bumping, thumping sounds of WWE Wrestle Mania in my living room. My help had go astray.
I was left on my own to hurry and scurry,
To hang stockings with care and not worry.
In just a couple of days my home will be filled with the laughter and sharing of family that make the hustle and bustle of the holiday worthwhile. There is always at least one story that is etched in our memory from the previous year.
Creating memories is the best part of this time of year. There seems to be a lot of dashing off somewhere. At our house, it’s dashing off to church, dashing to the store and of course, dashing through the house in preparation for family.
What are your plans for the Holiday season? Will you dash around hurriedly with last minute preparations or relax and enjoy a slower pace?
Wishing you a happy holiday season!
