I'm willing to bet that sometime over the next few days stuff will happen that will be inconvenient. It might even be a request from your husband or something he left undone. For the most part, it's just stuff that happens because you are human and everyone you are dealing with is human. I encourage you to take a deep breath, be kind, think practical and do what you can to smooth over any rough edges ... and smile. I think you will be blessed by the smile you get in return.
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles. Washington Irving.
And let´s just enjoy the holidays. Nothing needs to be perfect. :-)
