Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas – On a Budget

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.

Last year I wrote a book that lists many of the ways that I celebrated the holiday season as I raised my children on a tight budget –  Frugal Seeds 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holiday Season on a Budget The book can be read FREE with KindleUnlimited and is available on Amazon in e-book and  paperback.

I would be humbled if you would take a moment to check it out, thank you.

Hey everyone, it is so good to see today!  I sure do appreciate you taking time to visit.  

As the old saying goes that there are only two guarantees in life, death and taxes.  Money is something that we must have in order to live in the world at this moment in time.  Life is expensive, especially for those of us who live with chronic illness so my question for all of you wonderful people is,  “What is one way that has helps you balance all of your financial demands?”

Thank you so very much for stopping by and taking time to comment.  I feel blessed to be able to share and learn from all of you.

Hello Friends, thank you for stopping by and I hope today finds you doing well.

My question of the week is a lot deeper than any other I have ever asked, but I hope it does not scare you away and keep you from taking a moment to reflect upon your response…………(drum roll please)……….

“What is the meaning of life?”

I realize this is a big one but I also know you will have amazing responses. Thank you again for your visit, it is an honor to share this time with you!

visiting the past

My body instinctively pulls away, while my brain shoves me further over the stones.

The fear and sadness, as if I was a moth drawn to the light from the fires raging in hell

I lunge head first into the abyss knowing damn well once I slip, the climb out is endless

Have I not been tortured enough…..

I have I not payed enough for my sins, or worse yet, theirs…..

As I break these chains, one link at a time, may the light I see be that of peace and not pain, love not hate, safety and not fear.

And may I walk those haunted halls from one of freedom and not bondage.

Hello wonderful humans, I hope today is treating you well.

My question for you this week is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned that one of the ways to heal to the best of our ability is to accept the present situation and go from there.

So, my question for you today is,  If you were given the chance to do ONE THING that you are no longer are able to do, what would it be, and have you found a suitable replacement?
