I've been reading al these posts and seems like everyone is so down. I think we really need to remember what the holidays really mean. It's not about buying, buying, buying or getting, getting, getting. The economy stinks right now andI really feel that EVERYONE is feeling that. The holidays are really about what Josh sings in "Thankful" We need to look beyond ourselves. We need to be thankful for what we have. For us, Christmas is going to be bleak, yeah, my kids are getting what they really want, but the rest of my family is getting the homemade Christmas. Whether it is ornaments or those silly layerd jars with cocoa or cookie mix in them. Keep it simple, most people don't want or need things they want to spend the time with family and friends. Take a good look around you, listen to "Thankful" a few times and really see that there is "so much to be thankful for". Our families, friends, FOJG, clothing, health, food and shelter. There are many out there who have very little.
Keep smiling and focus on the real reason for the season.
Grobie hugs
