Christmas meaning-from a 13 year old:)
I am Happy the Holidays are over, well almost, the next few days will be unwinding as a we wind down from the Holidays:) Well, my hubby had to be back to work today so he gets No real time to wind down, back to 6 day work weeks and 10-12 hour days:(.... I wanted to share a quick story about something my daughter told me. She got tons of presents, cds, perfume, purse, so on so on,stereo system,curlers.........on and on..... She told me that her favorite gift of all was not all she got from everyone material wise, her favorite gift was that that was given to her by her great-grandma who is over 80 years old, a beautiful blanket with her name, school name, and graduation date. She tells her that even if she does not make it too graduation she will have somethin from her, and Joli is the most soft hearted lil gal, and takes right after the sweetest lady I have ever been blessed to have known, my hubby;s grandma. She loves everyone, she(my daughter) made it known that is the best gift ever!!! She shared it to her friends on facebook, verbally to other loved ones. It's not often when a teenager can bring a dose of reality to an adult but that was a definate one for me. We are Christians and believe in giving, and Jesus is the true meaning of Christmas, I think he uses Children as gifts to many to learn from even at their young age. I believe that in so many ways..........I Love that the Lord has blessed me with SO much, and that my daughter can bring a dose of reality to me, its not material things that matter, its all about love<3 SOMETIMES in the present bought world we live in material things for show are what makes people happy, look at my ring, my laptop, my north face coat, my new shoes, louis vuitton purse......so on so on............. I am glad that I have raised my daughter to know what is really meaningful. I thank you Lord for sending her to me, and I thank you for all that I have been given, and for always finding away to make sure that I know you are around(in this case I believe it was the message sent through my daughter ) I thank you all for stopping at my blog today, and hope you understand my lil message I received from my daughter, and sometimes I could use a reality check in this department, material things don't matter...... and I got your message Lord........ It's Love.........
