This Year

I was thinking about how pricy Christmas has become over the years.
When I  was young, I usually received the one main gift I asked for, plus a couple of other gifts such as, pajamas and socks plus an outfit.
Today, these same gifts have tripled in prices. This had caused stress instead of joy, debt on credit cards and sometimes guilt from not being able to do enough. 
Personally,  my lack of balance, continued headaches and fatigue have interfered with spending more time with loved ones.
I wish things were different,  but I have to accept what is. I will do my best to smile, not frown, to be as normal as my body will allow.
This year money is a bigger issue.  I will do my best once again, to accept what is. I will concentrate more on free gifts, than wrapped gifts. These gifts can include, hugs, good conversation,  showing appreciation of time with others. I will do my best at leaving loved ones with wonderful memories of time spent with me.
I will make sure loved ones understand how important they are to me.  These are gifts that can not be bought, but appreciated year after year.
I hope your holidays are going to be a blessing for you this year. I pray for peace, love and joy in your life.
God bless each one of you. Merry Christmas.
