I spent the last two days with friends. We had a feast, snacks, and everyone opening presents. Everyone ws having a fun time, but the spirit of Christmas wasn't really there. The kids were ripping into presents like they couldn't handle not having more and more. And I got to thinking why nobody seems to know what the true meaning of Christmas is.
Christmas is not about getting presents and eating to stuff yourselves. It is not about how many cookies you can eat at a time (and one of the kids had 3 plates of cookies). Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of mankind. The greatest gift that we were given was the Son of God, the Word made life.
I know that I was participating in the fun and meal and treats just as much as the others. I need to remember that this is the celebration of Jesus' birth and not just what so many people say, that it is just a day for family and presents.

I haven't ever been ableto run do to weak ankles. Since I am supposed to take a stress test and need to run on it, I've been starting on the treadmill (have only been there twice so far) and have tried a couple times running down the hallway (that's not far). Today I stopped at the store and was parked some ways down the hill from the store. I actually ran, slowly though, up that hill toward the store without twisting my ankle. Yea. It wasn't far, but I made it without getting out of breath, too.
Today was Orzo's well-pet check. The vet loved him. She didn't think that he would stay sitting on my lap, but he does. I was talking to her some about getting along with dogs and she said that when she took him in the back for his weight there were several dogs that went by and he was fine with them. He also had no worry about the dogs in the waiting room other than two puppies that startled him. I cannot believe what a sweetheart he is and no one wanted him.
