The Greatest Gift To Give This Year

     During the present economic crunch, I believe the greatest gift we can give our family and friends this holiday season is SIMPLICITY.

     What do I mean by that exactly?  Well, I’ll tell you . . . when I was a single mom, I did not have a lot of money so I decided from the beginning that each Christmas, my son would only receive three gifts:  something practical, something educational and something fun.  

     After awhile, it did not matter how much money I had or didn't have, he would only receive those three gifts.  (Note:  At his 10 year mark, one more category was added . . . spiritual.)

     If you were to ask my son what he thought about this, he'd tell you that he looks forward to those few gifts because they are special.  

     A lot of times I purchase them, but he has also enjoyed the gifts I have made or special items of mine that I have passed down to him.  My son would say that our home is full of peace at Christmas time because we keep it simple.

     I thank God that He gave me the wisdom to do so from the very beginning.  It started off that way because I had had very little money, but it is a tradition that has been continued because it works for our family.  

     Simplicity . . . a sweet treasure with one of its greatest returns being PEACE.  And, I'm sure we could ALL use another cup of that, right?  To a Glorious Holiday Season for you and your family, just remember KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetie!
