THE DAYS BEFORE

Dec 27th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

There are fewer days between Christmas and New Year’s Day, but, for the most part, there is also less to do to be ready. Selecting what to wear, vowing to be safe and cautious, swearing to limit the amount of spirits to be consumed, making last minute “good wishes” calls. That’s about it, unless you are hosting an occasion, which will mean a completely different set of “to dos.”

The Days Before provide for time to be adequately recovered from the Christmas celebrations to put on a whole different costume in readiness for a new year. We speak figuratively here of “costumes.” What we wear, we find as we grow older, is really less important than who we are and how we choose to present ourselves. It is no time to be foolish. It is time to have a good time, but to do so with a posture of appropriateness and a spirit to be shared with and by all.
