So you're broke and it's Christmas...what now?

Take a moment.

I'm listing some practical ideas at the end of this post.

But first...
 
Breathe.
 
Focus on what's really important.
 
It's not expensive gifts.
 
It's not a table groaning with $500 worth of food, $250 of which will be thrown away at the end of the day.
 
It's having our loved one close. Appreciating the true meaning of Christmas.
 
Peace and Goodwill to all Men.
 
Believe that you have a Guardian Angel, as well as a Guardian Mama, watching over you.
 
From this, you are meant to learn.
 
From this, you will gain a new appreciation of what you can do when faced with a crisis.
 
From this, your family can grow and learn that dealing with adversity is a necessary human skill.
 
Exchange letters, hand decorated with magazine clippings. Write your family history. Spend Christmas day doing nice things for each other...a foot massage, a shoulder rub, brushing each others hair.
 
Give of yourselves, not of the supermarket and shopping mall.

You reap what you sow.

 Don't sow anger and unfulfilled need. Sow a peaceful and glad heart that you and your loved ones can gather together in a safe place and go on.
 
It may well be the best Christmas you've ever had.

Here is my cheap, cheap, cheap, impressive Christmas lunch.

Here are my no cost Christmas Ideas Number 1, number 2, number 3, number 4. and more to come. Stay tumed.


 ...until next time...
