Thanks for the goodie Janet...I completely lost this thread!!

Today...visited a friend who is nursing a bruised tendon in her foot. It was a year ago today that I broke my ankle so I surely can sympathise with her.

Wishing everyone a blessed New Year...2016.

On my way to New Year's Eve service at church. I ordered a book from Amazon for my friend who lost her dad and plan to give it to her if she's there. It's a devotional on grief and it was very helpful to me when my dad died.

Thanks, Janet, for starting this thread. It's been an eye-opener!

Glad to report that the Canadian dollars for my young friend arrived at the bank yesterday. You have to order foreign currencies ahead of time and the bank clerk wasn't sure they'd arrive in time for me to give them to Marco before his journey. But they did! Thanks, Lord!

Took the rest of the cookies I baked to work - a gift to my co-workers, but in my own interest - glad to get them out of the house!

Also attended the funeral of a dear friend's father. Made a donation in his name to a charity as the family had requested. (While I was at it, sent a small donation to the Bible school I graduated from. Online banking makes it easy.) It was a hard day, but also a precious day of seeing old friends and acquaintances.

Let a woman go in front of me at the 4 way stop. Saw an dear old friend and we exchanged hugs several times and talked for a while. She is elderly and her husband has dementia. She apologized for "complaining" which she didn't. I understand how the caretaker needs to vent sometimes!! Shared lots of Christmas greetings Wrapped my son's gifts for his wife and wrapped presents for grands and Kevin.

Gave out another round of tangerines at the language school today. Beats chocolate for calories and all-around healthiness!

Ordered some Canadian dollars at the bank to give to a young neighbor who's leaving in a couple of weeks to take a 6-month language course in Vancouver. Hoping they'll arrive before he leaves - with all the bank holidays in the calendar, it's touch and go!

Yesterday, our church hosted a big Christmas party for some of the refugees in our community. It was great. I got to translate from German for the English-speaking folks. It's been a long time since I did that from a translation booth and it was fun, especially meeting the other translators - we had translation into Farsi, Albanian, Arabic and French!

Today, I'm continuing in translation mode, helping a German friend who needs help translating some documents concerning a small pension she receives from the time she lived in Canada..

JanetR - lol at cleaning up playdoh - DEFINITELY a gift to your gkds!

Took son to city 70 miles away for dinner out with his birthmom and her brother. They asked to go to Bob Evans. This would have been my 40th wedding anniversary so would have preferred more upscale. Gave her several gifts. Both had gifts for Scott and his birthmom gave me a gift. So glad we were able to find her as the adoption was closed. Try to see her at least every other month. The best gift ever received was her son born one day off my due date but I miscarried.

Not sure about today was at ER with son until 5 this morning. After a couple hours sleep got up to get his meds filled at two different pharmacies; the one did not have the ordered dosage in stock. Picked him up some lunch. Will try to catch some more sleep as he needs to run on dialysis tonight.

You draw a number between 1 and ? ( I like to use 5,000). The person with the lowest number picks a gift. They unwrap it. The next number can take the gift from 1 or can pick an unopened gift as theirs. If they take the gift from 1, 1 gets to pick another gift to unwrap. The third number can choose any gift already opened or an unwrapped gift. Again, if they take a gift from either 1 or 2, that person can unwrap another gift.

We did this with a Sundsy school clas over a 5 year period. There were certain gifts that made their way back each year but in new boxes to hide their contents so it was a standing joke. Also did this at my work. It is important that folks have a good sense of humor or they can get real upset when someone takes something they have and want for themselves. Usually a $ limit is set and you decide ahead if they are joke gifts or useful items.

Our family has never done this so we got all items for entire family/friends to play. Again, doing this in honor of s-I-l who loved games and was always generous.

Picked up a bike for my son. Placed it in our second garage until Christmas morning. This can give him greater independence. Almost forgot the helmet but picked one up today.

Wrapped presents for the family dirty Santa; so exited to be coordinating this in honor of my sister-in-law who died last March. Doris loved games and loved Christmas.

Arranged a dinner meeting with Scott's birth mom and her brother (the only living family members from their family). They wanted to eat out at Bob Evans on Sunday for dinner. This would have been our 40th wedding anniversary and we had talked over the years of a getaway to somewhere romantic; he had never been to any of the islands. He passed away less than a month after he retired at age 72. The dinner will be a good distraction as this month is also the 35th anniversary of our son's gotcha' day. Shall always be grateful for her giving him life and realizing she could not handle his medical needs. Time passes so quickly.

Trying to start a new family tradition of dirty Santa. Will finish wrapping last of the gifts for this to start this year. If they like it, all who wish to play will be responsible for a gift next year. If not, no more Dirty Santa. Had I started earlier, I would have made gifts but not enough time.

Wednesday is my day at the slimming world group where I weigh all the members for two groups.
It's so good to share their joy when the scales are kind and try to encourage them when they are disappointed.

It is always nice to give yourself something --especially something that is really needed.

Maintaining.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

I gave MYSELF a new umbrella today - used gift cards that I got for my last birthday. I forgot that I had them! I always like to get myself a little Christmas gift, too.

A friend of mine is organizing a Christmas party for some of the refugees in her town. I'm helping by translating a short story for her to read as part of the program.

My past 3 days have been very hectic! Practice, party, program, finishing orders and making gifts that I gave away this weekend. I have given a lot of myself away

Dropped off a "Christmas in a Shoebox" package - it's been packed for a couple of weeks already, but I needed help getting it to church. Also sorted out almost 20 pounds of clothes and took them to the charity bin. Feeling lighter today having both of those things done!

Blessings, Michelle

Trying to stay wise and strong in the foundational Word when the person I'm with is not able to fully appreciate this gift. My prayer is that I not take God's love and care for granted.

Made duplicate copies of photos to give family. My cousin's husband just went on hospice care; both are blind so have copies of our last visit for their son and daughter. Also, had photos of family groups with Santa. I had won a special photo visit and had him go to my nirce's home for her grandchildren. His outfit was so luceroous and he was so good with the kids.

The secret Santa exchange with my English students was great fun. I had never organized one at the language school before. I was also happy that my gift was a success. You never know with these things, especially if you don't know the person well.

Went to the Christmas market with a young friend - also a former student who claims to be an atheist but always seems to want to talk about faith matters.

Blessings, Michelle
