    Getting is okay. That is a good point.

    It makes sense. If it's a good thing to give, how can the giver do a good thing if it isn't good to receive? It drives me nuts that people that accept charity are criticized for doing so. For even being without in the first place. How can it be noble to donate and share with others if there aren't people equally allowed to receive those gifts freely given?

    We always look to others and see what they have and what they don't have. It's human nature. It could be material things or circumstance. I like what your oldest does. The kids know what to expect Xmas morning.

    I like to read the story's they tell. Good people give good gifts. The ultamet gift is your presents. You become immortal by how long your presents ts appreciated after you've left. The difference between mortals and immortals, is reason. The reason is, is because You Matter. You Matter, That's the Spirit Of Things. The name of the Spirit, is Jesus,who was a gift from God because He so loved the world. Love gives ya wings, because you never know where your heart will take you, it's more than an emotion, it's the ability to get into the Spirit Of Things. So, up till now the past is determined, the future is uncertain, the present is what you've got. I think that's how Nickles became a Saint. That's my theory.
    I wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
