Does anyone feel overwhelmed doing this alone?

What I really appreciate (especially during the holidays) is taking the focus off my personal crises and on my kids - their reactions to the lights and decorations, their questions about Santa and the Nativity, their exuberance over decorating and shopping! My 3 yr old daughter helped decorate the tree last night - I had to video her because she was dancing and flitting around singing along with the music, and showing me every ornament before placing them on the tree. It's a magical time that is SOOOO temporary, and I love the diversion from the everyday issues.....

The holidays are so hard to keep going when you have to add the stress of finances, weather, relationships, etc to the burden of family, work, parenting! I try not to worry, because I know I can either pray or worry, but the feeling of drowning is bad this year! Anyone else needing encouragement and positive feedback like me? I am just putting my head down and plowing through this month, so I can get back to normal levels of stress in January! My kids are the reason I keep a smile on my face - they only know fear, anger, and worry by watching me, so I don't want to express them. I'm so grateful for the daily hugs, kisses, and loving compliments I get and give with my children - without them, how could I go on another day??? God knew what He was doing when He gave me my kidlets :lol:
