Tips to make Christmas Shopping this year a little easier

 

ChristmasClarksville, TN – Fun or exhausting, somethings Christmas shopping can be both. Here are a few tips to make it a bit easier.

First, if you want a specific item, call ahead to see if it’s in the store. How many times have you read an ad that shows the exact item in which you are interested only to find out when you reach the shop that it is sold out? A phone call can prevent this problem.

Suppose you have trouble reaching anyone in the department where the item is located. Ask for the manager. If the manager is uncooperative, shop elsewhere. Usually the manager will get the answer you need; after all, that’s why this person who gives better service was promoted!

Gifts that are the Greatest

 

The Greatest GiftClarksville, TN – We should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others during Christmas time.

I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.

One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant.

Greatest Gifts of All

 

Greatest_GiftClarksville, TN – Christmas is the time of year when we should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others.

I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.

One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant. Another gift I’ll never forget came from a student and her mother who made a CD of favorite Christmas songs for me. I listen to that CD in my car every Christmas because it has so many classics like Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” and James Taylor’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Other gifts I’ve received are on a different scale.

When Your Kid is a Jerk at Christmas

We are trying to find our proverbial Bing Crosby Christmas, but it’s buried alive under mounds of defective string lights, years of disappointment, and the weight of our gritty reality: life is not as perfect as the cover of a 1955 Christmas album. «Read the rest of this article»

Frankly, there are times when we all expect too much.  We would love for our homes to be picture perfect, our kids to be genius world-class athletes, and our pie to be fat free.

But then there are other times, when we should expect more. And we don’t. Don’t settle for bronze, or even fool’s gold when you deserve the real thing! «Read the rest of this article»
