Thank you to all my readers who took the time to read and enjoy a little bit of my life.
This year has been an amazing one. My family has taught so much! This year i was lucky enough to help at my daughters school, started going to a new church, enjoyed time with family and friends and made amazing memories.
I look forward to another year of making memories and enjoying what the New Year has to bring me!!
It's Christmas Eve, a time to celebrate. In my household we are baking cookies, wrapping last second gifts, planning which movies we will watch and looking forward to putting out cookies for Santa. That sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Christmas Eve has a little bit more of a meaning for me. My nephew Klassic was born on 12/24 and passed away 9/2010. We celebrate his birthday and his short lived life.
His passing taught me something, that i am reminded of each and every time I think of him. Christmas is not about how many presents you receive or even give. It's not about if you have a belief in Jesus or if you don't. It's simply about being gracious and thankful.
In our home we celebrate this as a day of giving, life, and love. This is a day for all Nations to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and even though we might not all agree on the day of his birth, its nice to have one day we all can celebrate it TOGETHER. It's a time for families to take off of work, gather together and enjoy one another. Remember this today, life is short and enjoy each day as it is given to you. He decides the length of our life's but we can decided the quality. Show a little more love, kindness and compassion to one another. Care enough to smile, and laugh enough to enjoy!
Merry Christmas from my household to yours. On this day of remembering, celebrating and love you are in my heart!
With it being the holidays i took the time to set up a post for each day of December. For some reason most of the post did not post. I will be working on fixing this problem and getting these post up. I am sorry for those of you who were following the tips. Thank you for notifying my via email about this issue.
Happy Holidays and may your season continue to be filled with blessings!!
Get all the things you need to mail together. This is the time that you need to get the final things together. Mail day in most cities is the 14th, check your city for your day.
Most post offices have a final day to mail packages and cards that will guarantee Christmas delivery. Take the time to check what your date at your local post office is and start getting all the last min packages and cards ready to go.
Bonus Tip Because Christmas cards go on sale the day after Xmas, buy a box or two address them to those you received a card from because the address are available and handy. Put a forever stamp on them and they are ready to go for next year. Makes Xmas cards less of a task next year.
