“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

Not surprisingly, each Christmas since I came down with CFS has been increasingly different, increasingly simple. Now don't get me wrong, simple is a good thing. It scales back all the unnecessary and frantic materialism of Christmas and brings you to the heart of the season.
Yet this year, I kind of feel like it has stripped me of Christmas altogether. I've done my shopping online, and I've almost finished, thank goodness. However, there are no decorations yet. No cards sent. No stories read. No cookies baked. Just a huge to-do list of things that I need to do in an increasingly short period of time.
I feel like I haven't had time to even glance at the sky, let alone find the star and follow it.
