Thought for the day….

Welcome to Monday, December 17th, 2012 and it is now “7” sleeps until Christmas Eve.

Wow …..

Are you ready?

Sugar cookies baked on Saturday and gifts wrapped and under the tree.

So I am all done.

I have heard on the radio that sales are up and that Canadians are spending more on Christmas.

I did spend more than last year but last year I did all of my gifts for less than $20.00.

This year it was a bit higher but not much.

I have been trying to be creative without spending a fortune.

I think that somewhere along the way we have lost what Christmas and the Holiday season truly means.

I see it when I am working at the store ….. most people are friendly but they are rushed ….. lose their manners and such.

We need to show more community at this time of year.

Less gifts more love and respect.

Spending quality time with your friends and family without a price tag is more rewarding at the end of the day.

Because unless you give a gift from the heart ….. people do not remember what they got two days after Christmas.

I was one of those people ……

Give from the heart …..

Anyway have to go and finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you are enjoying this last week of work before Christmas.

Have a great Monday.

Special Hello to: all those crafters out there ….. making things …. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin
