A Charlie Brown Christmas and me

Friday, December 13, 2013

Most of us muddle through the holidays, trying to find ways to make them meaningful. My friend Charlie Brown knew how to make do with what he had. Perfection comes from having a loving, happy heart, not from having a perfect tree and all the right gifts under it!

Today I will give the gift of love and patience. Gentle words are something that everyone needs.
Make it a merry Christmas friends! Laugh and love those closest to you. When all else fails, learn a lesson from Snoopy and take a nap!

Charles Schulz had it right; Charlie Brown has it right. The best gifts we can give are our time, patience, and understanding.

    I love the comment, Photos of a perfect Christmas are used to try to sell us something.
So true!

    I've always loved the Charlie Brown Christmas! Good to remember that no matter what you spend on Christmas presents, the best present you can give is your time.

  It's not the holiday until I see A Charlie Brown Christmas (and a Christmas Vacation and It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story and Miracle on 34th St.!)

HUGS and here's to keeping it smart, simple and sweet for the holiday.

    It is important to keep the right attitude this time of year (or anytime, really!) so as not to get too stressed out about all the things we "should" be doing, so we don't enjoy the things we have! Great reminder!

    All those pictures of the "perfect Christmas" are usually attached to an attempt to sell me something. I just want my family all together. Charles Schultz nailed it with Charlie Brown!
