Worth reading

In Like Merchant Ships' post So Little Stuff I found this essay mentioned at O Night Divine.

"My mother patiently mentioned that when her ten children were young she could remember about twenty things we had for toys. That was it. Stuff was not a problem for her because we didn’t have Stuff."

Please go read the whole thing, because this is not a we-slept-in-a-rolled-up-newspaper post either. This one does cut to the heart of Christmas.

Thanks for the link :) I appreciate that you share so much from other bloggers. Very neighborly of you, and cyber-buddyish.

By the way, Owls in the Family arrived for us at the library today. I'm planning to pick it up on Saturday along with a few more of your recommendations. Thanks!
