I saw this storefront in the mall a few weeks ago...it sort of bummed me out. Get ready to Get!
Wow, what a statement. I love to give and I like getting things, I won't lie to you. But to me that is not what Christmas is all about. I have had a rough year financially (off work for several months without a paycheck), personally (my dad's death made me rethink a lot of different things) and professionally (I learned that things can change for the better even when things look ominous). However, I learned I have a lot to be thankful for...I have a healthy son, well behaved, he loves me, he is a good kid.
I am extremely proud of my Mom for all the adversity she has faced this year...she has come miles and well, I am just so proud of her. She is going to be taking a few trips both before Christmas and after Christmas and she so deserves them.

I needed some changes in my life and God has provided for me.
He made me, he molds me, he helps me, he holds me.
As I sat in church yesterday morning I saw kids in the pew ahead of me playing with a paper towel roll (the product of some sort of Sunday School craft) and it just struck me how simple things really are in God's hands and how difficult we as people try to make them. So I will try to remember this and keep God close to my heart in this season and always.
