I am a slacker. I admit it freely. I wait until the last minute for almost everything. To my surprise, everyone isn’t like this. I have been reading about people already making or buying Christmas gifts and have heard from at least one person that she is already done! Wow. Well fine, I am starting to think about it now, as if I didn’t have enough on my mind with all the leaving vacation stuff until the last minute. I actually do think this is a message I would like to get out now so I can catch all the moderately organized people out there. This year I am going to attempt to make gifts for everyone on my list. I would love to get homemade gifts from people who have me on their list as well, but I know that isn’t always possible. So if I am on your list try and buy handmade for me or better yet make me something. I would like to add that I consider myself fortunate to have all of you in my life and that is present enough. With that said, the final option I will present to you is to make a donation to a charity of your choice and tell me about it. Let’s share our good fortune with others this season.
