Presents

Happy Wednesday to you all, hope all your wednesday wishes came true.  I was very happy yesterday, because for the first time in years our house had a sensible xmas.  Perhaps its because we are short one person this year, but all our gifts were very thoughtful and concrete.  We had very little gifts, in quantity but each one of us got everything we really wanted.  

What made it great for me was our kids didn’t lament the lack of gifts, but actually appreciated the fact they got the one real gift they wanted.   What amazes me the most is we could have afforded a lot of gifts this year, but for some reason the household decided to live less without me harping about it.

We also made those coming to our house for a party bring clothes and such to give to the needy as their entry fee.  So the safe house here received a large donation.

Now i can kind of appreciate the holiday.
