You’ve pointed out three additional problems with what is going on these days: A lack of appreciation for personal, hand made articles that come from the heart instead of the store; the stagnation, if not discouragement, of creativity and originality; the gradual replacement of gratitude with expectation in our society. Hats off to you for sticking with your values and passing them on to your kids! Personally, I’d wrap up a few lumps of coal (if you can find any) and give them to the offending adults.

Comment on A Media Christmas by Heidi Wisneski https://www.quietimtalking.com/2013/12/19/a-media-christmas/#comment-138 Sat, 21 Dec 2013 10:43:38 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=1257#comment-138 The older I get, the more frustrated I become with the preparation and celebration of Christmas. In my home, it’s a time for togetherness. We bake hoards of cookies, decorate the home together while listening to Christmas music, and create handmade gifts. As I was telling a close member of our extended family about the handmade gifts, their reaction was, “Oh, you can’t afford to buy gifts?” That is not the case at all. I want my kids to continue the celebration of Christ by making offerings of the heart. These are gifts that require thought, not cyber specials. Moments later I received an alert on my phone. I had been invited to our families annual Christmas Eve gathering via an E-vite on Facebook, complete with a gift list for my nieces and nephews. Not a wish list, mind you. And we were asked to bring cash for all of the teenagers. Seriously!

Comment on Balancing Disconnect by Eric Margolis https://www.quietimtalking.com/2013/10/24/the-balance-of-disconnect/#comment-2 Fri, 25 Oct 2013 11:18:58 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=182#comment-2 Funny, when I saw the quote “The government has been focusing on coverage…”, I immediately thought it was referring to MEDIA coverage – which I honestly believe is the REAL problem. The government is only interested in how they are perceived in the media – not the actual issues and welfare of the country.
