It will be a Merry Christmas anyways 2
Almost every year has been a sparce Christmas for us, sure the kids dont notice cuz the grandparents and reltives always take up the slack. This was going to be the year I got to do it right, do the shopping and make the big dinner. Well what we paid for the digital camcorder hasnt even come out yet and our account is looking thin. I promised to help my sis with her rent next month as our presnt to her and her girls. I hate banking and bills, after all is said and done I will have maybe $100 for all my kids and for Josh and for the Dinner I had planned on serving Christmas day to the relitvies. Times like this is good to remember that gifts are not important, but the thoughts behind them. Lilly will be happy with just a jump rope, that is all she asked for, but ofcourse I wanted to get her a littletikes play kitchen. And I am sure I can get Zane one of the books from LOTR and tell him the rest are on thier way. Annie will be happy with a new diary and some pertty hair things I am sure, that barbie she wanted can wait till her birthday again. Sophia is easy, she is still a baby and just wants to unwrap something. Josh needs sock, forget that cooler he asked for or that robe, lets be practical again this year. So much for the shopping spree I had dancing n my head and I can wait for new clothes for myself, I am not totaly done with my weight loss, but I am sure Josh is sick of me wearing his pants cuz mine are way to big for me anymore. It will still be a Merry Christams because we will remeber that we have been blessed with so much and that the Gift given to us by Jesus Christ is so much more valuble than any earthly treasure. Amen.
