Merry Christmas!

I just went Christmas shopping, this time with a comprehensive list. I don't think I've done it that way for a very long time. I enjoyed the feeling of accomplishment that came with doing it that way. Now if only a little elf would do all the gift-wrapping for me! I find that part of presents quite boring.

At the thrift store, I found the old How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in VHS format. My children are happily watching those right now. Not only are they great from an artistic angle, they teach good lessons about finding joy in what we have (after all, we can always find something we don't have, so there's no point focusing on the lacks) and appreciating people for all the good they do and strive to do (again, there's always something a person could improve at, but it's hurtful to always be focusing on what they lack).

May you all have a lovely Christmas season.
