My First Gift To You – Blank Monthly Calendar

Free clean, DIY blank month calendar by Brina and Friends Art

This was all I wanted in a calendar – a clean design and with plenty of room to write. I don’t always need fancy pictures.

Enjoy a little free download, if you like:

My next possible gift is still in brainstorming. I need to figure out how to put money into something that makes me no money. Tricky stuff!

What Is Christmas

Christmas Eve Mountainside Church Services

A friend of mine recently brought up the question of “What is Christmas to your family? What are you celebrating?” I wasn’t sure how to answer and it made me think that Christmas has become this time of family and friends, giving and receiving, being thankful and warm fuzzy fireplace stuff but my children don’t know the story of Jesus’s birth. So I think I might take them to a Christmas Eve service this year so they can find out what Christmas is really about. If there’s no meaning, what is the point?

If there was a temple, mosque or a synagogue, I’d take them there, as well, at other times of the year. I guess we just need to travel a bit more to learn and experience all the different religions and stories.
