What’s Your Motto?
If we even have a Christmas at my house this year, I’ll have to go out shopping for the first time in years. Until this year I’ve always done 95% of my shopping online. I hate going out to the mall, Walmart or wherever during the holiday season. I’m not someone who has any tolerance for stupidity or blatant rudeness, so when it happens I have two choices. A) Walk away and pray the offender grows a brain and a heart, or B) end up in jail.
Walk away, Faith, walk away!
I am looking forward to baking this year. Since we moved into our new place, I have a big kitchen and lots of counter space to work. The youngest has a Rice Krispie Treat “gingerbread” house kit to make, and I’ve bought many baking supplies from cookie icing (cheaper to buy the tubes than it is the ingredients to make it), and all sorts of things to make fudge, cinnamon rolls, and so on. The family will eat some of it, but I make such things and give them as Christmas gifts. My homemade fudge is a request I get every year from those who have indulged in it. The traditional flavors like pb and chocolate are made, but I also make flavors like banana, spiced, wintergreen and so on.
This year the economy is in shambles and most families are struggling, so my Christmas motto is to “thank God for my family and to appreciate the tiny things we often take for granted.”
Do you have a Christmas motto?
