Stocking Stuffers

Went to a store the other day, only to look around when a salesperson came up to me and asked if I needed assistance (which is a wonderful strategy), but I said, “I was just looking”, then he said, ”We have stocking stuffers”.

My answer surprised even me. With an automatic reply I replied, “No thanks, I don’t need to stuff any stockings this year.”

I smiled and walked on, but the statement was a realization of what Christmas was going to be.

I have read this post a number of times. I can't tell if you are sad, happy, resigned... It makes me remember "Father Christmas" by Emerson, Lake and Palmer when they say "the Christmas we get we deserve". I hope you choose one that brings smiles, joy, comfort, and even peace on Earth.

I agree with Art... Choose smiles, joy, comfort and especially peace on earth.
