Looking at Christmas this year is different than before I went to India. Right now I feel so blessed and I have everything I want. I bet I am driving Ryan nuts as I have no idea what I want.
Anna on the other hand is so easy to shop for. I know I bought way too much for her, including a Wooden Kitchen off of Craig's list :)
I think its that I was to celebrate the gifts of Christ, not just that he got gifts when he was born but also the gift of eternal life. I have that. Pray that I keep that in mind as we go to 6 parties in the next few days before the celebration of Jesus's birth. That's the reason for the season, not Hallmark or the Gimme-Gimme monster.
