The question runs through my mind night after night,
How am I going to buy those holiday gifts and make it all right?
I have a house I can no longer afford with a job that is coming to an end,
I have a car that is broken and medical bills that surface every now and again,
Not to forget to mention, a 13 year old Christmas tree on its last limb.
With tears in my eyes, my sight is blurred.
I have love,
I have family,
I have friendship,
I have laughter and a sense of humor,
Most importantly, I have faith!
The true gifts are those that are given all throughout the year…compassion, understanding, friendship, forgiveness and love.
