Raising a family of 6 on a budget, I understand the stress that Christmas can create, a time when we feel the urge to overdo everything: gifts, parties, meals, and decorations. Of course, all of these activities and preparations cost money and can distract everyone from the real reason for the season.
A warm hello to you today, thank you for stopping by for a visit.
In this post I am asking a question for more personal reasons. Due to my multiple chronic illnesses, I unfortunately spend a lot of time watching movies. Even if I am not actually watching movies, I have them playing in the background as I go about my day as I use them as a distraction.
So my question is, What is your favorite holiday movie?
Thank you for responding, I am hoping to discover one movie that I have not yet seen!
Thanks again for stopping by. Please know that each one of you are in my thoughts and I have prayed that today is treating you well and bringing you smiles.
It is that beautiful time of year again when we celebrate Advent, the time we prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus.

“Sometimes a little comfort food can go a long way.” ~ Benjamin Bratt
As the holidays are fast approaching, the subject of food tends to be pushed to the forefront. We start to think about or plan what we would like to eat during the holiday celebrations. Even if we do not celebrate the holidays, the cooler weather, at least here in the North Hemisphere, makes us think about comfort foods.
Being chronically ill, you tend to think a lot about food (or maybe it is just me). Many of us are on special diets and encouraged to suck down endless supplements and medicines while dreaming of being able to eat a gluten and dairy filled pizza (or maybe that is just me too!)
My question for the week is, what food is your go to when you want to eat something that adds a little cheer to your life?
Thank you for sharing! Who knows, you may just “find” your new favorite food.
The Holidays, even if you budget for them, have a way of putting a strain on your wallet. While my kids were younger, I worked very hard to make sure they didn’t notice our limited budget by keeping Christmas a fun and active time while remaining focused on the true meaning of this holy season.
I am super excited to announce my newest book, Frugal Seeds: 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on a Budget. This book is a true labor of love as it includes the many ways my family celebrated the holy season while living on a budget.
I would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to check it out here.
Sending a sincere and loving THANK YOU to all of you out there who make this world a better place. I read your achievements daily……helping others through your encouraging words, beautiful and creative writings, beneficial information and prayers.
YOU are what makes this world so special and I am honored to be a very small part of it.
May God bless each of you with a peaceful Christmas season and a joyous New Year.
As we enjoy the beautiful lights this holiday season, let us remember what this time is truly about. Please take a few moments out of the next month to think about those who are less fortunate and make a plan on how to help. Small actions on your part can make a huge impact on others’ lives.
Those (in need)
Now go let your beautiful inner light shine onto others!
