An Early Resolution

I have been thinking an awful lot about something lately. Something a very wise man said. (Okay, it was my brother-in-law,but he’s my favorite. And he is very smart!)

We were talking about family and how some people always seem to focus on the 5% rather than the 95%.

“No matter how much you do for them, they will always bring up what you didn’t do,” he said.

He is so right!

I was thinking about it because I felt that at Christmas, the kids were bound to be disappointed when they didn’t get everything they had put on their Christmas lists.

I wasn’t about to get a cotton candy machine for the Little Ninja!

And while the kids liked their gifts, I know they were still thinking about what wasn’t under the tree.

It makes me sad. Sad that people can’t be satisfied with things. That they are constantly comparing what they got/have with what others got/have.

One of my new year’s resolutions is going to be:


After all, a 95 is an “A”!!

Happy “Day after Christmas” everybody!
