Every year my sister makes a rocky road Christmas tree. It sits nearly half a meter high and is filled with nuts, marshmallows and chocolate.
She decorates it beautifully with drizzled white chocolate and glaced cherries. It becomes the centre piece of our Christmas table. Every time you walk past it you get a waft of chocolatey goodness.
The worst part about it being the centre piece of our table is that you have to wait until the end of the Christmas dinner before you can cut into it. By this time I have filled up on so many other things I just don’t have the room for any rocky road.
This can be true with our time at Christmas too. There are lots of great things we can fill up our schedules with that we often don’t leave room for the best stuff. Things like family, quality time and spreading the true meaning of Christmas – love.
With all that is on offer to you this Christmas season, make sure you leave room for the truly good things.
