Challenge to all of us: Take a moment out of each day and go out of our way to be "nice" to someone! Wouldn't it be nice if we could be like that each and every day! After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?

Christmas is Stalking this Mom!
OK~ Do you ever feel as though you are being stalked? Well, I'm beginning to wonder if the calendar and Christmas is stalking me. Everywhere I go, there are Christmas trees, cards, garland, and holiday lights. WHAT? This is November 6th folks! If my calculations are correct we have something like 50 days until Christmas. OK, some may argue that the weather is nice or we must have all of this in the stores in order to sell it! A couple weeks ago I walked through Wal-Mart (my favorite love/hate store), I turned around and Santa was sitting on a sleigh, looking for a home in a yard. Halloween had not even arrived! Yes, Christmas is stalking me- This Mom has decided to not think about Christmas (yet), and try to enjoy the Fall season. And once I do start thinking of Christmas, I will look for a manger scene- isn't that what Christmas is supposed to be about? I am not against the decor that goes along with the Celebration of the Birth of Baby Jesus, but it would be nice if the "want" factor was removed from Christmas!
