in 3 more months...
I was looking at my calendar today.
Then...it hit me.
In 3 more months, we'll be celebrating Christmas.
Wow!! This year has really flown by. Seems like Christmas was just a few months ago.
Anyway, the thought of Christmas brings to mind the birth of Christ and the gift giving. They say that you should give and not expect anything in return. Well...we all know better than that! LOL!!!
As I think about the great gifts that I've gotten over the years, I think about the terrible ones, too. It's not that I'm ungrateful but some things should just not be given as gifts.
For instance...THE SWEATER. A few years ago, my Aunt Ruth, whom I love dearly, gave me a sweater for Christmas. I was in college at the time. The sweater was PURPLE and GOLD (my high school colors). The problem was it was not a good looking sweater. It looked like something from the 70s. Not to mention, it was too tight. I mean it was so tight that if i raised my arms...I'd rip through tha damn thing! LOL
Well, I accepted the sweater from my aunt. And I never wore it.
It was a bad gift. I know it's the thought that counts but she could've thought a lil bit harder than that! Haaaaaa
What about you? Have you had some horrible Christmas gifts? Or what about your best Christmas gift?
