Christmas Shopping is for the Birds.

In gratitude, reflectons on December 23, 2010 at 10:52 am

 

I will be glad when the holidays are over.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays.  But,  I just hate the shopping and all the hustle and bustle.  Christmas has definitely become too commercial.  I always say I’m not doing any shopping and end up doing so anyway—giving feels good.

What makes shopping even less appealing is that I have a disorder—Cervical Dystonia—which causes lots of pain; currently, the pain and spasms are often lodged in my shoulder and back area.  So, that is what’s really making shopping not-so-fun.  But, at least my hubby usually comes with…Poor hubby.

I have two Godchildren who live in another state.  So, I tend to find online gifts and have them sent directly to their address.  So, after spending much time, unsuccessfully, searching the web for toys, I stumbled upon the eGift card option which is offered by Toys “R” Us.  Let’s just say, “God is good.”  This was such a convenient option!

The Godkids’ mother sent me an email saying, “I got your ecard 2day.  Thanks so much.  What a cool way 2 send a gift.  Thanks again.  I will call u soon.” 

The eGift card arrived in her box in less than 24 hours.  I was relieved that I could, so conveniently, cross two, little people off of the gift list.  And, for that, I am grateful.
