Lately the only thing on my mind is ....How can I find gifts for people with no money? I am on disability and have a jobless best friend living with me, since September. So if money wasn't tight enough, now there is none. I have a few ideas but it really get's me down. I should have spent time doing something about it rather than just being depressed...now I will have to scramble...... So what's on your mind?

There are way too many things on my mind this year. If I thought past years were tough, I was sorely mistaken. Financial difficulties, family problems, health issues for one of my nephews, you name it, I have worries about it. But, still in all, I have my tree up and decorated. All of the stockings are hung (regardless of the fact that not everyone will be with us to celebrate this year), heck I even got a few Christmas cards out. I still have more to send and plan on addressing them tonight. I was able to get one pair of mittens knitted and need to make 2 more pair. They are relatively simple to make and take little time too. Yes, I am still depressed overall, but I have moments when the light shines through. I live for those moments. Big Huggers to you.

I know that I'll get through this. God doesn't give us more than we can handle. If we buckle, he will be there for support.

Sounds like you're going to make it happen.....lol I wish we could go back in time when money wasn't quite as important as it seems to be these days....well I guess it's always been fairly important...but no so bad as it seems now. I do so wish I could go back to work but the doctor wants me to wait until my diabetes is back under control...if it's not one thing it's another.....Well I hope you have a lovely Christmas. Blessed be, Mari
