Crunch or Love

Ok, so we’re crazy busy right now, wrapping, cooking, cleaning, last minute shopping… the Crunch is on!!!  It just might help to change our perspective, who are we wrapping, cooking, cleaning, shopping for?  Our Loved ones, whether our family and/or friends. When we are doing these tasks try to do them lovingly with these people in mind,  things don’t have to be perfect, they will love you regardless, your blood pressure will go down and your end result will turn out better because your doing it with heart:).  And don’t forget to take a deep breath…
