Good Reminder...

This has been around the e-mail circuit for a while now, but it is worth putting here...I need the reminder.

Who Started This Christmas Stuff?

A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable; and after hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of the year - overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, making sure we don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened, and there was already a crowd in the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed, she couldn't take it anymore and she stated, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot."

From the back of the car, everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond, "Don't worry, we already crucified Him."

For the rest of the trip down in the elevator, it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

This year, don't forget to keep "the One who started this whole Christmas thing" in your every thought, deed, purchase and words. If we all did it, just think of how different this whole world would be.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

Merry Christmas!! -deb

She's soo haappy

I swore I would never be one of know who you are Robin.
I have turned to the dog side.
Meet Margaret Thatcher...Maggi...The Mags, as her Mommy likes to call her. I also call her sweet cheeks, butterball, and princess. She looks like an angel doesn't she?? That's what I need to buy her next, a set of angel wings!! She already has the halo.
She has the sweetest kisses and she jiggles like a bowl full of jelly when I so much as look at her.
Even though I fought the idea of another dog...especially one that actually cost money, I lost -but really I won. I don't think I could love a dog more. She's only a baby, a special needs baby at that, but worth all the cleaning, wiping, walking and lost sleep.
My new motto is "an outfit isn't complete without dog hair."
Expect to see more pics of her here, but first I need a nap!!
