Thoughts from under the Christmas tree.
We are surrounded by the temptation of buying beyond our needs.
AND taking 6 months (on average) to pay off the credit cards.
Consider; what you really pay with all that added payment interest. Not such a bargain is it?
SO, lets get our priorities straight: Remember you have a mortgage, car payment, utility bills, and the well being of your family.
AND Christmas is not about what we get!
Christmas for many lasts for a few minutes of ripping open presents, and throwing them aside to open the next one.
This year, take a break, spend time making cookies, drinking hot cocoa and watching Christmas story with your family, talking to neighbors, invite a family less fortunate to your celebrations.
Cuddles and hugs don’t cost, but their effect is priceless!
Make a Christmas Resolution that each year you will adopt a family; there are always people less fortunate then we are, and think about what they need to live a life of comfort.
When you do that you remember with tears that the very basic things in life are gifts much appreciated.
Christmas is a time for reflection and remembering that the true gift is of giving.
