Handmade 7-piece costumes, intricate treats for everyone in the class at school… party for the neighborhood kids…
That sounds exhausting to me!
I scored like 25 costumes for $20 at the thrift store. We’re set for LIFE.
Or at least until next year.
We DID carve pumpkins… that we bought at the grocery store.
Note: they’re already rotted. But hey, we got our hands dirty!
There are all kinds of things I could do for Halloween.
But I have a little secret to tell you…
And it’s taken me over 30 years to learn.
You can’t do everything.
What if I try harder, and wake up earlier, and streamline my meal planning, and coordinate my errands…
Sister, here’s where I want to put my arm around you.
Do what you can.
All you can do is all you can do,
and all you can do is enough.
So here’s just a glimpse of what we did for halloween.
Moral of the story? You don’t have to do everything (or ANYthing) everyone else is doing.
Remember this as Holidays are approaching.
Remember, simple is good.
Simple is memorable.
Simple is life-giving.
Do what lights your soul, what brings a spark.
And let that be enough.
Because you ARE enough.
