Listography: Things I'm Forgiving This Season


Photo by Donna Lewellen {some of our handmade gifts}

Things I'm Forgiving this Season:
  1. The way our tree only has ornaments on the front.
  2. That it's leaning due to lack of ornament distribution.
  3. Decoration boxes yet to be put away.
  4. Not setting all the nativity sets out.
  5. How our front yard decoration is one red lamppost light.
  6. That our house pales next to our neighbor's decorations.
  7. How I'm not purchasing many gifts.
  8. That I'm creating gifts instead.
  9. How I used to view this season.
  10. The way I've broken all my rules on how to do Christmas.
What are you forgiving this season?

  3. I love homemade gifts, they have so much thought in them! And sometimes change is a good thing, I love that every Christmas is different!

    1. Oh Kate, I love that image "every Christmas is different". Never thought of it quite that way.

  4. We only put the lights on the front of the tree, as well as the ornaments. Cute post!

    1. Yay! We can be front-of-the-tree buddies. That's the part you see anyways, right? :D

  5. Great list! I'm forgiving myself for not making a ton of holiday cookies (because I'm trying to get fit and know I could not resist!)

  8. Wonderful list! Sounds very accepting and free of perfection. I'm forgiving myself for not being more gentle and kind to myself and always putting others first instead. Going to make lots of changes in 2013!
