Because life's little headaches make us appreciate the good times.

December 2014 Mama Kat question of the week: How would you spend your dream Christmas if money was no issue?
The leg lamp from A Christmas Story has resurfaced in Georgetown, TX.
With or without money I wouldn’t change a single thing about the way my family celebrates Christmas. We are together Christmas Eve through all of Christmas Day relaxing, baking, eating, laughing and enjoying one another’s company. There is always someone one of us knows through work or school who we have noticed needs a little extra encouragement at Christmas time. We prepare gifts and then scheme ways to deliver them to our chosen person or family without getting caught. During quiet moments on Christmas Day, I wonder how those folks may have felt about their unexpected good fortune this year.
Nothing stays the same forever. It won’t be long before our Christmas celebrations are shortened or changed to accommodate spouses and in-laws. Any number of unforeseen circumstances could impact our ability to be together in the way we are now. It isn’t an elaborate Christmas Day I dream of, and I have no particular need for it to be white; instead I pray for another Christmas observed in the same simple way that has made us happy in the past.
