Home For Christmas

Posted 11-16-2012 at 07:15 PM by caninemom3

The little girl was 6 years old and just brimming over with excitement ! Christmastime had come again and it was snowing heavily. A thick sparkling blanket of snow was upon everything outside. It was Christmas Eve 1960 and Santa was going to make his annual appearance that very night.

All was in readiness. Mom was baking cookies and was nearly finished. Dad was doing "dad" things. He always tape recorded Christmas morning on the "latest" in technology tape recorder so he could enjoy hearing everyone in all their Christmas excitement later on when all the chaos was over and he could relax and just enjoy his family. He was also preparing because he was going to record a talk he planned to have with Santa that evening for his 6-year-old. Her two brothers were being very secretive about something as well as her sister and everyone was feeling Christmas in the air. She did not know it but her two brothers had saved for weeks to buy their baby sister a giant...

Santa Won't Let Me Down?

Posted 09-15-2011 at 01:58 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)
Tags belief, magic, santa

I am getting the feeling that Santa Claus may not be in existence for my oldest much longer, which is killing me right now and forces me to put my thought in my blog. He is putting all his faith in a gift from Santa that my wife and I cannot afford. While I was tucking him in to bed the other night I asked him what he thinks he wants for Christmas this year? He starts blurting out the usual things like some action figures, books, video games, and so on, when I saw a light go on in his little head and he said he wants Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and a Nintendo 3DS. I told him flat out that Mommy and Daddy cannot afford that this year, and then he said "that's ok, Santa will bring it for me." (In my house we go by the rule Santa brings one present, the rest are from Mom & Dad) My heart sank as soon as he said that, he will be anticipating that will be under the tree from Santa only to be disappointed by it not being there. We bought a Nintendo Wii and put it on Layaway...

Rent, insurance, tuition, books, heat, electric, gas, the amount of debt I was in was overwhelming to me. I think I was at my lowest at Christmas time, everyone else on break rushing home to family and me with no one close left alive and nowhere to go, no money to spare. I couldn’t even afford a tree, I was bitter and just feeling horrible and then my car breaks down. I really was in a bad way. I had no money to even get it towed it was on the side of the highway. I was in the car crying and a police offer (a Michigan State Policeman) approached I didn’t even hear his car pull

A Lesson From Santa !

Posted 02-10-2011 at 08:46 PM by caninemom3

[COLOR=seagreen]Late one Christmas Eve, I sank back, [/COLOR]
[COLOR=seagreen]tired but content, into my easy chair. The kids were in bed, the gifts were wrapped, the milk and cookies waited by the fireplace for Santa. .[/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]As I sat back admiring the tree with its decorations, I couldn't help feeling that something important was missing. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]It wasn't [/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]long before the tiny, twinkling tree lights lulled me to sleep. I don't know how long I slept, but all of a sudden I knew that I wasn't alone. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]I opened my eyes, and you can imagine my surprise when I saw Santa Claus himself standing next to my [/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]Christ[/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]mas tree. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot just as the poem described but he was not the...
