DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST THAT IS HARD TO BUY FOR?!
I have someone very special that I look all year long for a gift. This person, who I love deeply, has everything and is very particular about everything. She will always say she does not need anything. "Spend your money on yourself and I will be happy!" How can you do that to the best Mother in the whole world? I have always given her the gift, I thought she would enjoy and she always thanks me for being so thoughtful. However, "Meja, do you have the receipt?", always seems to follow. The best laid plans of mice and men! I purchased her gift yesterday. I made a decision not to leave the store until my Mother had a Christmas gift! Three hours later, we had success! Give her a gift certificate, you say! No, that will not work with her, she prefers presents. She loves to open them up! She looks so cute doing it, you just have to love her! So, Mom, here's hoping!
I am still putting Christmas things up. You know I have 3 bins of Nativity Sets, could not find one. My daughter, Vanessa, has used the basement for storing some of things for about 4 years. When she moved, my sweet, precious son-in-laws, moved everything. So now, I do not know where my things are. Oh, well, I am sure I will find them by next Christmas. I did have everything in order by months in the basement. So now I have to start all over again. Thank God for January and a new beginning.
I took some pictures of a few things I have been working on. The Christmas stockings were all made by me, when I was more together. (Those were the days, my friend, we thought they would never end!) Have a great week! Blessings, Martha
