I haven’t stepped on the mall yet, this is going to be a new kind of Christmas for me. Like many around the nation I will have to plan carefully and creatively what my gifts are going to be. The Christmas tree won’t be filled underneath with a lot of gifts but I believe that this year the real meaning of the season will spring everywhere.
It is about Christ’s birth and about love and family. I will try to make it memorable even though all the evil forces seem to be against me each day and I will enjoy a few days with my whole family. We never know when that last Christmas day together will be and it is important that we treat each one with a very special sentiment. Take a lot of pictures and then create cards, put them on frames or collages and give them as gifts. Our attitude is one of the best ways to change our present reality and go to a deeper a meaningful level that will stir people’s heart this Christmas. Merry Christmas to you my friends!!
I’m curious to know what you are planning to do this year. How are you going to make it special without spending a lot of money and still create wonderful memories out of these difficult financial times?
