No, it is not too early to be thinking about Christmas. If you are a crafter just look in the stores....you need to start those craft projects early so you can finish. If you're on a budget or just watching your cash flow you need to plan ahead and watch for sales. Christmas is about giving and not receiving. God gave his Son so we could have eternal life, the ultimate gift!!! Yes, I enjoy the presents but it fills me with such emotion when I see some one's face light up when they open a gift. I LOVE buying and giving to others.....maybe I just love shopping. LOL Check out this site, it is a place where single parents can post for a holiday adoption. My sister is one of them, she has been a single mom for a long time. She is also disabled and cares for our mom. Please help someone if you can. THANKS!!!!!
