Happy New Year

Hello Readers!

I hope you had a marvelous Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever you were celebrating this season.
I celebrated Christmas with my hubby, mother and my youngest son and spent a great deal of my time on the phone with my other kids.

I spent quite a bit of time baking and giving away treats this year, but not as much as I did when the kids were younger. Personally, I like the homemade gifts that I receive much better than the do-dads that can be bought in the stores all year round.

One year my sister knitted me a pink sweater. She must think I am a lot bigger than I am because it was many many, did I say many sizes too big for me. But I still wore it. It became my favorite sweater when I was pregnant with my son in the dead of winter though.

Every time I wore it, I thought of all the hours she took knitting it and that it was made for just me. Every time she sat down and picked up those knitting needles, she had to think about me.

You don't get those feelings from an object that someone rushed out to the mall to grab off the shelf for you. The person who did the shopping isnt going to work thinking of the gifts recipient all those hours at work while the worked for the money to make the purchase. But when someone sits down and knits, crochets, bakes or whatever have you, you can be sure they are thinking of the recipient in the back of their minds.

So to me, a home made gift is far superior to anything anyone can buy for me.
