Have you ever been in a holiday rut?

I’ve always considered myself someone who embraces and welcomes change. But recently, my usual joy of trying new things was challenged when my daughter expressed a desire to host the holiday meal.

In my recent post on A Wife Like Me, I share four unexpected blessings I encountered when I let go and shared the holiday load with my daughter. I invite you to read my post here.
