I'm not going to go into it.
Matthew 6:4-6 says "Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you."
So only a handful people will know the details... the person I had to get permission from to spend above the pre-set amt, the 2 women I tell my secrets to, and my children who notice everything I do... but the short and short of it is I was moody. I knew someone had a need, and I took care of it.
HELLO CHRISTMAS SPIRIT.
For today anyway. So that's the answer... think less about me and my moods and my ... depression... and think more about others and the mood will lift. Good news. Good news.
So if you are one of those people for whom this holiday season brings you more down than up, find someone who is in need and help them... they are not too hard to find. Just ask a couple of friends, or call a church or something. I know I didn't have to look far.
ps... I hope no one thinks I am bragging... I just really, really want to give advice to help those who get extra moody this time of year.
Til next time.
