Christmas - at the heart of our time

Monday, December 03, 2012

I am looking forward to the beauty of Christmas. I see hope, faith, love, and peace in many people. This is my favorite time of the year.

We are enjoying simple things - Holiday dinner at the Inn at Reading sponsored by Baxter and the Pennsylvania Dialysis Center of Reading. I have my BCASR luncheon on Thursday at the Reading Muhlenberg Career and Technology Center. I will be installed as President of the group. I am excited.

I am looking forward to special services and music. I selected several books to read with a holiday theme.

    I love Christmastime, too. I have really cut back on gift giving but love the decorating and baking. To keep myself from eating too much I spend a full couple of days baking, bag it up and then plate it up to pass out to friends. I don't want it sitting around the house. Our meals we keep simple. Love all the music at this time of year, too.

    You are correct about the needs of so many people. We are making gifts to the local food bank, the Red Cross and other groups instead of buying gifts for us.

  this used to be my favorite time of the year . It has become a nightmare . Budgeting to do it all . trying to get the budget to allow the purchase of so many extra things .making all the goodies that my family has come to look forward to having .I tried to tell them that christmas is a time to show love and not an excuse to have purchased all of the major products that they "think " they need . we can live without so much . i hurt when i think of so many who do not have food or shelter . their needs are so much greater then mine . emoticon emoticon
