With all this Christmas stuff going on heres a question for you's. Instead of recieving how about giving. What are you gonna give someone special in your life for Christmas???

People leave our lives as quickly as they come, but the ones that mean something leave footprints in our hearts.

Erin? Hugs to you, for a thoughtful question.

one I have to make a list for...

my parents...I would like to give them the gift of reassurance, that I really am gonna be okay...

my kids...another gift of reassurance, that they really ARE more than okay...

my friends...that they make everything okay. And oh-i-love-them-for-it...

my special loves...for making me see the possibility beyond okay...

and everybody else? Gets a DVD

You know, it's funny that I read this just now.
I was just thinking about a little girl that my husband is
sponcering through his work. I went out and shopped for her
today and I felt like buying her more than my budget allowed.
Then I started feeling like I should do it anyway....
but then my son would lack on his gifts.(Shame on me)

Like a ton of bricks it hit me. My son already has WAY more
than she, I'm sure.
Not to son will be recieving gifts from a majority if my
family, including 4 grandmaothers and 2 grand fathers.
How could he miss out on anything.
So on that note, I bought MORE for that child that may not
recieve any other gifts.
My son will still recieve gifts from me....
just not as much as he would have.
And isn't it about time that we remember what Christmas is
really all about anyway?
My son is still young enough to instill in him that
Christmas is more than just getting pressents.

If only every family could help a less fortunate family....

I am giving the usual stuff to my family, tools, a moustache trimmer, some playstation games, and through work we are sponsoring 2 families, so I am going to buy two bicycles and some food.

How can you save me?

from my front walk and into bed,
where it kisses my face and eats my head. Shivaree

We are also sponsoring a family. A 19 year old with 3 little kids. I'm having fun buying toys for the kids and though they told us not to go overboard, why shouldn't a child have a great Christmas?

My family will get what they want...I've always tried to give them that. And each year, they look forward to their Christmas stockings because that's where I can get truly creative!!! I even sent one to my daughter in Norway when she spent the holidays with her boyfriend's family. It's really the little things that make a memory. And I would rather they have wonderful memories of the holidays than an electronic dodad.

I agree, last year we bought Christmas presents for a single mom and her three kids.  It was so much fun shopping for them, knowing how much they would appreciate it.  Even some of the stores in the mall pitched in when I told them what we were doing!
We've done this a few times and really enjoyed it!

Well i have nothing to give to be odd as it may seem this is the case. Oh well..

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

LOL -- as the one "special" person in my life that I actually have physical access to at the moment is a Moderator of this forum, I would have to say that would be telling!

... but I CAN tell you what I am going to get my children, who live in San Antonio, for Christmas ...

I am going to send them both a book; a storybook rich with pictures for my son, and a child's poetry book for my daughter.  I am also going to include with each book an audio cassette with a recording of Mommy (that would be me -- *g*) reading their new book for them ...

The bedtime story and naptime story ritual is something that both me and my babies miss dearly since they have gone to live with their father, and I am praying that this will allow me to recapture some of that precious time in their thoughts.


anyone else..?


Remember: maintaining a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will certainly annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Well, since I'm poor and stuff, I won't be able to give any material things this Christmas, with one exception. My friend Pat, who lets me live here, desperately needed system RAM. She's running Win98 with only 32Meg, and has some problems because of that. So my gift to her: 2 32MB EDO RAM boards. That should spruce up her system...she'll be running with 96Meg onboard RAM.

Those of you who still have old systems, unlike some of the cornfed systems decked out with insane system specs, you will understand the need for RAM.
