For many of us with families or other obligations, Christmastime is a bit too frenzied. Today in your journal, I’d like you to look at the busy-ness of the season with a bit of humor, and either write a prayer or short poem which acknowledges what I call “overwealmth”: overwhelm plus wealth/abundance.
Here is one poem that has always gotten a smile of recognition from me:
When it is all, finally,
I climb into my car,
Roll the windows up,
And somewhere between backing out the driveway
And rounding the first corner
I let out a yell
That would topple Manhattan.
How do you pray?
——Margaret L. Mitchell
