Finding an Angel and the Bright SIde
I don't know about you, but I have started my Christmas shopping. I have been determined to find presents for everyone and try to stay away from buying gift certificates. Opening a gift just seems more fun to me somehow.
I understand for some Christmas is not a happy time; recollections of sad or bad times or even memories of those gone or far away intrude and make celebrating difficult. For myself, I do live far away from my parents and siblings and I have no idea when we will all be together again for a Christmas. That is a sad thought for me. However, I remind myself that I am so fortunate to live near my children and grandchildren and will enjoy seeing them open their gifts from me.
