Days 7 & 6 'til 2013 - Not in the Groove

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I'm just not myself this year's Christmas season. I actually forgot gifts for some people we ALWAYS buy for. What's worse is that it's kids. I usually wouldn't forget stuff like that.

I also waited until the last minute to set up the used ipods I got for my DDs. Unfortunately that meant discovering on Christmas eve night that one of them was passcode locked, which the seller neglected to mention and since I bought it several months ago and, like a fool, didn't check right away, there's nothing I can do. So, DD1 got her ipod (she's wanted it for over a year) and DD2 didn't (I think she mainly wants one because the other 2 did also). We ended up giving her other gifts and will try to get the ipod unlocked and set up for her birthday in March. Thankfully all 3 kids were SUPER grateful for everything they got and they know it's not all about the presents.

Also, I got to my in-laws yesterday with nothing to contribute to the meal. In walks everyone else with food, esp. my BIL & SIL who brought a ton of stuff. I felt like such a free-loader. I dropped the ball on a couple other things, too. I won't dwell on it any further. Point is, I'm off my usual mark. I really enjoy giving to others and helping and being a blessing to those around me (part of why I love Christmas) and I just fell so short of what I would've liked to have done and been.

Ah well, time to move on. I'll find ways to be a blessing to those around me, Lord willing, every day for this year and the next. That's all I can do.

    I'm finding that the more that I know you, the more that I find you are a blessing to all. Don't second guess yourself. Things happen for a reason. Sounds like it was time for others to get to share & for you to just give of yourself and your company. I look forward to getting to know you better and better.

    Happy Wednesday Sweetie! emoticon

I agree with Shan! this is your year to RECEIVE! And you mentioned that your BIL & SIL brought a TON of stuff so it's ok. I'm glad you said it's over. I think you may need some "ME" time and RELAX. Sometimes we move so fast that we drop a lot of balls but we kick them out of the way and GO FORWARD! emoticon

Sis lets take 2012 out with a BOOM!!! And Celebrate This New Year of GREAT Grace With No Regrets!!!
Enjoy the Rest of the Year!

    You know, sometimes we are the giver and sometimes we are the receiver... this was your year to receive a little bit. Don't feel bad, it was what it was!
