Merry Christmas, Cowboys and Cowgirls!
Whatever one’s chosen functional role in a relationship, it’s nice to have one’s efforts be appreciated or one’s tasks made easier, and not so good to have that role be considered to be who you are in that relationship, or why you exist. Young children can get away with it. Adults, well, not so much.
Enjoy the respite from work, such as that may be for you. May your employer not be one of those who gladly sacrifices your life at minimum wage to scratch for every last retail dime out there. For those of you who enjoy get-togethers and traditions and decorations and feasting, have at it! For those who see it as a chance to quietly step back and take a moment to review, go to it. For those followers of Christ, continue to seek to honor Him in what you do and how you do it. Celebrate Him.
