It is finally ... Christmas. Merry Christmas to all of you.
This is my final Christmas card for this year. But I won't despair. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are just a week away!
I hope that special "something" you wanted was under your tree today.
And don't forget to pat yourself on the back, and feel wonderful, for all the gifts you managed to buy, make, and put together, to make someone elses Christmas extra special. After all, the season is about "giving" and "receiving".
For me, Christmas is a reminder of Christ, our Savior. He GAVE His life for us, and we only have to RECEIVE His gift. Looking at my own life, I can only say "thank you" for that gift, as I could never be perfect enough ... to live up to what person I should be. As my granddaughter used to say to me, when caught doing something she shouldn't: "But I wanna be good."
I hope my granddaughter's Christmas is wonderful at her dads. I had Christmas with her before she left. She is due to come home, I think tomorrow, and her mom and new dad will celebrate Christmas with her. I'm sure they are missing her this year.
I get the pleasure of her company about 3 days next week while I'm still on vacation. I am looking forward to that, and thinking of things we can do together. I have some ideas. She fills my heart with love and joy ... and I'm in awe watching her grow up. I am so lucky to have her, and all my family in my life.
Before I go, I just have to share something that made me chuckle this morning. I hope it gives you at least a smile.
I was reading my magazine, only to read how you no longer need a stamp to post your letter. You don't have to run out and buy them. Lo and behold .. we can now go to the mail monster dot com and type our letter there. THEY will mail it out for us, with first class postage, and it will be mailed within 24 hours!
The catch? Local advertisers get to put their ads in your letters.
Hey! That's funny to me! Where there is a will; there is a way. There is nothing new under the sun, but packaging it can get pretty creative!!!
Have a blessed day!
