Wrapped Beneath the Tree

This year is going to be different in this house. First off, we live thousands of miles away from what we once knew so well, and since the move, funds for Christmas is well, ahem, low....
My husband and I have spent the Christmas fund for gifts for our families (I love to look for deals online, and have saved around a thousand dollars by searching on-line!)....but this leaves very little for the two of us. But ya know what? At the top of my wish list, as cliche as it is, all I want for Christmas is what I already have :) My dream guy, my silly, goofy Molly, and the roof overhead. Sure I would love to have a new, fancy purse (and by fancy I mean rather large and durable!) and some new craft supplies, or the Shabby Chic chair I covet online and say 'hi' to daily....but, at the end of the day, when all is said and done, I would be lost without the love of a good man and the sweet licks of my Molly.
Tomorrow, I will be making Molly's Christmas toys....she is just a kiddo and needs something 'new' for Christmas! I have a few other sewing projects to work on....let's see how it goes!
I pray you are all lucky enough to have something so special beneath your tree.

Sounds like you are counting your blessings, my friend. :) And that is a great way to celebrate Christmas! If it weren't for my kids, I'd love to have a Christmas just like that. But I know my kids would be super disappointed because to a child, Christmas presents are a must! I just hope they're getting the right balance of 'presents' and 'presence' so that they never forget that gifts are great, but being together is more important. :)
God bless you and yours this Christmas, Jaci! I'm so glad to have met you! :) said...

i think MANY MANY of us are in the same boat!! I don't even know how i'm going to come up with money to buy my kids presents. I'm glad they're not the bratty variety ;-) God always provides tho. Its fun to make it an adventure and i'm thankful for my perfect husband too!!

You expressed that beautifully! I have all that I want and more than I need. I am truly blessed. :)
