i want

so christmas this year is going to be very different than last year. no money + school tuition + rent+2 kids=small christmas. but our kids are young enough it doesn't matter, and lucy is still learning the difference between 'wants' and 'needs', aren't we all though?

but my list of wants, when i dare think about it, is so long it's embarassing. my needs, really are simple. i need food, water, shelter, family and my faith, and i have all that. what about you? if you are reading this, you have a home, a computer and internet access (which means you have shelter and food also, if not you seriously need to prioritize) and a list of wants also.

i have no idea where i'm going with the post, so i'll stop, but just a little morsel for you to chew on.

I need time...time with my family....time to study....time to think....too often during the holidays I don't take the time that is really a necessity for my growth, although conversly I do take the time to shop for gifts that are probably just wants...go figure.

I know what you mean about wants and needs. I've been trying harder to focus on how blessed and watched over we are too! Whenever I find myself starting to have a pity party, I just think back to those humble conditions I encountered on my mission. It snaps me out of it pretty quickly! :)
