OK I just had a conversation with my mother-in-law she lives in South Africa and has been invited to spend Xmas in Canada with my bro in law.
My mum in law known as of now mil is worried she will be embarrassed as the cost of living in Canada is so relatively high.
I was unemployed for a while and just about managed to scrape together enough for a few cards. I was embarrassed. I seriously thought about avoiding
my family for Xmas period, my dad called and asked if I could afford the fuel to be with them, I couldn't, he just said don't worry son the
important thing is you're with us.
So is the meaning of Xmas presents or love ?
For me love wins out everytime.
So to those of us fortunate enough to buy gifts enjoy the giving. For those of us that recieve be grateful. For those of us that can't 'afford'
Xmas enjoy the love. For those of us that will be lonely and cold we can't cover every lonely soul in the universe but rest assured we're doing our
damndest to reach you.
