I am feeling pressured by the DO DO DO and BUY BUY BUY's! I am also living with a life-size humanoid Grinch! I would like to lock him in the closet! I want to concentrate on the wishes and surprises. He insist I stay to the needs?! Where's the fun in that?! Since we are blessed to have most of our needs met, that would mean little or nothing under the tree! Children are only children for such a small time and I love the excitement and joy The "Christ"mas season brings! How do I stay centered, positive, and joyful?! HELP!! And Yes, we are Christians. My children know the true celebration is the Birth of Jesus Christ. Ahh... just offer encouraging words and prayers, please!!!!!!!!!
