One Christmas I asked everyone in the family (including school age kids) to write down the ten most important things about Christmas. Not one list said the gifts! The cookies, the trips to see the lights, the music, and many more holiday traditions made to several lists. Then with limited time and money, we began the tradition of making Christmas count.
Well just got my notice today in mail my S.S. isn't going to get the cost of living which usually is what my medical is as it goes up each year...oh yes it said medicare is up so that mean grandchildren and great...are going to have to get a card with no gift certificate in them...as I feel that all of my other close friends and what relatives I have left will also get a card this year not explain no cost of living but Christ is Wonderful and I'm wishing you all a Merry CHRISTmas...and signing the cards..if fact that's what I just finished doing 48 cards in all...I know this is the time of giving but everyone know the bills won't pay themselves. I do my voluntary jobs and food giving to help those even more unfortunate than myself...Merry Christmas
"I have this Christmas-time dream that I will be able to buy a gift for every person I know. The reality is my money runs out long before my list of friends. I can get something nice for my closest family and something small for a few more relatives and close friends. I am learning to put my brain to work coming up with free experience gifts, which is basically an activity I can do with someone. I don't want to let the year go by without letting them know how much I love and appreciate them."
