Chrismas Spirit


I finally put up my Christmas tree today. I don’t know why, but I just haven’t been ‘feeling’ it this year.Yesterday my son (24, but living at home) wanted to put out the gifts he had wrapped. When he asked where he should put them since we didn’t have a tree up, I felt pretty bad.

So, I guess guilt made me do it, but I’m really glad I did. I just kept it simple this year and didn’t put out everything, just the tree and a wreath. Well, I also got out the sweet little tree that my mom made for me, gosh, at least 20 years ago. She’s been gone for 12 years now….miss her . I believe I got my creativity from her. I KNOW I did. More about that in another post.

This was in our Church bulletin today…

What To Give?
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all men, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
