Christmas is certainly a wonderful time of the year...
time to search for the perfect gifts for our special someone.
But sometimes it seems that some of us may lose the true

and nothing about the birthday of Jesus Christ…
"Hello…my name is GUILTY!"~ooops!
Well, since we are in the topic of gift giving,

to 'wrap under the tree'...errrrr so to speak?!


To our enemy, the 'F' word;
Forgiveness!

To every child, our hearts & a good example
.

To a friend, our ears to listen to
blah-blah-blah...more blahsss?! LOL*
.

To a charity, our resources & precious time
.

To a customer...errr a good service?!
[thank you very much!]
.

Truly selfless gifts... thanks for sharing. It's true that sometimes the real essence of Christmas tends to get lost.

I love the different kinds of trees you featured.

Sher said...

Forgiveness, a good thing! A wonderful caring post. May we all take guidance from this.

PS I saw the cover of the Valentino movie and noticed he has a family of little ones too (pugs) just like you!

Hugs and Relax and enjoy the Holiday

Jesus is the reason for the season! Haha. I'm not super religous so i always forget too, especially when i'm stressing over christmas shopping.

Melissa Blake said...

Oh my gosh, I love that first photo!

Jaime said...

Very unique xmas trees!

Sam said...

Last photo with the pussy cats makes me want to run out and buy an armful of kittens!... "patience" I think is a good wish for the season. Gorgeous photos as always dear Lenore! XX's

Tights Lover said...

Great post. I love the trees! And good wishes too!

Juanita said...

I gotta agree with the wee babe on this one. My 15-year old mountain bike that I'd managed to keep alive got stolen out my garage, so I really wouldn't mind one, Santa...

Toothfairy said...

I like these gifts!
and your trees :)

loves

abigail said...

those are the best gift ideas I've heard yet.

Simply Mel said...

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Simply Mel,
I'm working on 'patience'
~unfortunately not one of my virtues, still work in progress~

Thanks everyone!

Jan said...

We should remember the reason for the season.

I adore every one of these ideas, sweet Lenore. You have a big heart, and I'm sending you warm hugs on this solstice night.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

Beautiful! Thanks for the reminder. Merry Christmas, sweetie! xoxo

Kwana said...

Excellent gifts with the true meaning of the season.

Style Porn said...

But wait--the consumerism is the best part.

Um, and Santa, I'd love those red pumps from the last photo. Yes please.

Treacle (Stockings Addict) said...

My two gifts are happiness and humility.

I wish everyone could find the thing (or person) that makes their heart sing.

And I hope one of the "silver linings" to this horrible recession is that it gives people more compassion about those less fortunate. As my parents were fond of saying, "But for the grace of God, there go I."

Gabby said...

Gorgeous post, lady! I needed this reminder :)

daisychain said...

wonderful post darling xx

Gabbi said...

Lovely finds! I took so long in getting my tree this year that when I finally got around to it all the suitable ones were sold out. Going to definitely find an alternative now... ♥

spanky* said...

personally, i really like this one

i can't help it, the charm gets to me every time. i'd be perfectly happy giving a sad little tree a home.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Fabulous post and it rings loud & true. My only additions could be the gift of a smile, and understanding without judgment. The judgment piece is one that I have to keep reminding family members when we expect others to think just like one of us.

That and the iphone. Love ya x

Diana said...

I love Christmas! I don't like to use it as a personal reminder for my transgressions, but I do believe the birth of Christ is the best gift given to us, and that is a great reminder! Great post!!

I hope you have an amazing Christmas!! I'm very grateful for you- one of my favorite bloggers indeed! xxoo

Those all sound like good wishes to me. I don't know if the good customer service will catch on.....,I wish!
