I need y'alls help!
I usually have a goal of having the majority of
Christmas shopping done by October.
I will at least have gifts in my mind
as to what to get family members for Christmas.
I have no desire.
I do love to give gifts to family, friends and our kids.
I love to see their faces light up Christmas morning
when they unwrap their gifts.
But, this year -
I am having a hard time even coming up
with gift ideas for our kids.
Whenever I go to the store with gift purchasing on my mind -
sadness overcomes me.
There are so many people who go without so much!
They go without shoes,
How can I fill my house with more stuff
when we could do so much more.
We have so much -
we have all we need -
we really don't need any more stuff.
Anyone have any ideas of what we can do?
The local shelters don't want people under 12 to volunteer -
so volunteering there doesn't really work,
since half of our family would have to stay home.
We have thought of purchasing gifts:
something they want,
something they need,
something to share
something to read.
but, even that gives me hives.
Am I crazy?
What do y'all do?
Anyone else feeling the same way I do?
