Honey and I were on the way to school Friday and having just purchased an awesome Christmas present for one of my children I said…
“I’m so excited about Christmas!”
Honey of course said, “Me too!”
I asked her if she knew why I was so excited. She gave me a normal child response…
“Because you are going to get presents?”
I laughed, I knew that was going to be her response. I told her it is always nice to get presents, but I was excited to see her and her brothers on Christmas morning and see all that Santa left for them. She looked at me like I had two heads, how could I be excited about that! It would be more exciting to open presents.
This Christmas reminds me of a Christmas I had many years ago when we must have been in a pretty good financial position as a family. I received almost anything I could have wanted including a trampoline. I remember being so excited that I got a jean jacket LOL!
