Have you ever wondered about the origin of certain words? This weekend I was thinking about the word “October” and decided to look it up. The Roman calendar only had ten months as January and February were not included at that time.Heartfelt Greetings For Family Christmas Cards
Sending and receiving greeting cards is a beautiful tradition that brings joy to both the sender and receiver. In this age of “only email communication”, a physical greeting card is something to be cherished.Giving Back Because of Thanks
When my mom died I “inherited” boxes and boxes of black and white photos. Many of them showed soldiers in uniform with their arms around her. I really don’t know who these men were but remember the powerful stories that she told about how many of her friends went off to war and never returned.From One Turkey to Another
As a child, my favorite holiday was Christmas, second only to my birthday. These holidays were important because of the gifts I received. Oh, did I look forward to those holidays and all the presents I was going to delight in. And delight, I certainly did to the extreme. Then slowly things changed. I got married and we began having children. It was then I discovered Christmas was different. I was the one paying for all the Christmas presents, not to mention the tree and the ornaments. I never realized how much Christmas cost. The older the kids got, the more expensive it was. By the time Christmas is over, I am officially broke. My New Year’s resolution is usually, “I’m never going to do that again.” I keep it until Thanksgiving, which throws me off my game. I soon discovered a holiday I could delight in. That holiday was Thanksgiving. At Thanksgiving, there are no presents to buy, so my checkbook remained closed for that holiday. Of course, I did get the bill for the turkey we were having but that usually came in August. Outside of that, I could enjoy Thanksgiving without it costing me.
