I am going to talk a little about the holidays. The only thing this holiday season and last holiday season have in common is that I am poor. Everything else is totally different, thank God. Last year just like with Thanksgiving I was so depressed that I could hardly leave the house. This year I am doing great. I am remembering what the holidays are about, for me it is about Jesus' birthday and spending time with friends and family. I teach my kids that it is about giving not getting. Now don't get me wrong, they get plenty, as Santa "their Dad" has plenty of money. I explain to them how neat it is that they get all this stuff and it isn't even their Birthday, and that I think all Jesus would want for his birthday is for us to do good for others, pretty good deal really. One year we visited a nursing home. I am not sure what we are going to do to give back this year, but am open to suggestions.
If anyone has a certain topic they would like me to share on please let me know:)
