Christmas Insanity 2019
As family advocates Christmas is certainly the “best” time of the year. AM I Right?!!? Are you picking up on the sarcasm?
Christmastime is that perfect confluence of our RESPONSIBILITIES compiled by our REGRETS, STRESSES, WEAKNESSES and tumbled amidst the charm of working to appease all of our responsibilities simultaneously while honoring our religious affiliations, our charitable commitments, and oh yeah…our SENIOR PARENTS!!
“Driver! I have a request!?”
Stop the sleigh! Are we allowing ourselves to be so caught up in the Christmas Blitz that our most important, defenseless and meaningful of intentions are neglected instead?
Can we do better? Can we “stop the insanity?” Take a break. Stop the Christmas Clock. Sip an eggnog for a second, put on those warm Christmas stockings and take yourself a “Christmas Time Out”. As we hustle to spread that enriching christmas cheer, we offer some Christmas perspective. Here’s our Ode to Christmas 2019.
Always There Home Care’s Ode to Christmas 2019
Deck the Halls…drop some balls…Santa’s coming anyway…
Ever hear about the guy who was all things to all people? He’s the same one who never said no.
Pays his bills with his best intentions. Pleased all of his dependents by wishing it so.
Capable of leaping buildings in a single bound…fulfilling relationships without coming around!
He can also achieve different results doing things the EXACT same way! Do you know anyone who’s using magic tricks to get through their day?
He spends his free time teaching old dogs new tricks…He only watches one episode when he watches Netflix. He’s seen pigs fly, his favorite river to kayak is the ‘De-Nile’ and he always remembers to cancel after the free 30-Day trial.
He loves doing his taxes, his favorite hobby is MOVING!
He doesn’t believe the Pope is Catholic and find’s cough medicine QUITE SOOTHING!
He believes bears go potty in a public restroom. He rides a unicorn to work, while his wife rides a broom!
His favorite pastime is anxiety his favorite mood is PANIC. His favorite movie to watch is the TITANIC!
He prefers the Monkey’s over the Beatles, the rain over the sun and he’s an absolute figment of your IMAGINATION!
Before you waste what could be quality time with your spouse…keep in mind our busy friend should have STAYED IN THE HOUSE!
So bring Dad home to his workshop, bring Mom to her study…Just remember she’ll benefit with care from somebody. We have incredible care from Ohio’s best team. Give Mom and Dad back the location of their comforts and dreams.
Give the gift of care where it’s better received. Order in, gather the family and stay at home Christmas Eve!
We share this poem in fun, but also with a reminder to all of you trying to wrap not quite enough wrapping paper across all your christmas presents.
Here’s the reminder you need. Breathe! There’s balance in all things, but there’s no way that you can balance it all by yourself.
There’s no “i” in team. The shortest path to your own demise begins by telling yourself you can do everything without help. Let’s get through these holidays together.
SO STOP THE INSANITY!!!
