HeartMade HeartFelt

The countdown for Christmas has begun. With less than two weeks to go, if you’re(I’m) not diligent, you(I) might find yourself(myself) Way Over Spending.

Money can mean different things to many different people and it IS important, I know, but it has taken me a long time to figure out how to spend the money and balance that with what I think a loved one wants or needs with what they actually DO want or need. Therein is my dilemma. What DO they want for Christmas?

I have no sure remedy for how to answer that for others and while my answers have come to work for me, they might not work for anyone else.

Here are two of our Christmas Stockings (crocheted by me) and hanging by our fireplace this year. While they will be functional and I hope decorative, they represent memories of time spent with Grandmothers who instilled in me the love of craftsmanship and appreciation of things handmade as a young child.

And here is a photo of a decoration I placed in EGarden for the birds. Egarden may look like it is resting for the winter, but the memories of enjoying time spent there remains and I know the garden waits for me to return.

Making and sharing memories or experiences with people you love so that when they do those things they think of you and are happy? That’s it! That’s what I want.

And I hope you find whatever it might be that you want for this holiday season, too.

    Memories last a lifetime. Items, or things, are often lost, broken, or forgotten. My best Christmas gift will be time spent with those I love. Great blog. Great insight. Merry Christmas, Paula.
