Yes! A perfect way to spend your day! ;]

You've just made me smile. ^^

Good evening everyone! Surprisingly it hasn't rained here today. I guess that very cloudy morning sky misled me and I put my wellies on. (They are not the most comfortable shoes to wear, aren't they?) Anyway, this day was the worst I have had in many years. I simply felt like out of control. I couldn't stay focused during my lectures, I tried to stay away from everyone because I felt angry for some reason, and I went to bed after I came home. I fell asleep and I have just woken up. I still have that strange sense of worry which is really bothering me for a week now, and maybe today was its highest point? Anyway, I don't want to bother anyone here with my negative thoughts and emotions, and my friend has just back home so I will make us some tea and we will have a chat. She is the only person here I can rely on, and she always calms my mind down. And I will try to make my day much better tomorrow. :]

Sending lots of hugs and best wishes to your all way.

I knew this wasn't going to last forever, but it is really sad that my oldest is starting to not believe in Santa anymore. I truly believed until I was 13-14 years old. I don't want to tell him yet, I was hoping to get through one last Christmas with him truly believing. Hopefully he won't question it again for a little while, but reality is coming and we must let him know probably sooner rather than later.
This has really upset me, I am not ready for him to not believe anymore. I just really don't want him to ruin it for his little brother. I still believe in Santa Claus, and I need to let him know that Santa was a real person and we have to keep his legacy going.

I am going to have to pick up the book "The Santa Club" that was reviewed here a few years ago, and let him read it to try to not ruin it for his brother. http://christmasfinest.com/2011/09/1...he-santa-club/

Reading your post, made me reflect to when my daughter started going to Middle School (on the school bus) and the kids there teased her about her believing in Santa Claus. I always had told her that there was a Santa Claus and then came that dreadful day, one day, when I walked past her door, she was in her bedroom, lying in her bed, crying.

I went in rubbed her head and of course, she told me what had happened and the teasing that occurred that day on the bus.... I was devastated that a part of her youth was now torn away because of a bunch of non-believer's on a school bus.... So, with her lying there and me sitting on her bed, I told he the truth about everything, including that he was a real person in life (and a Saint) and that I believe in the spirit, goodwill and generosity of Santa Claus. I even read to her the reply to Virginia O'hanlon's letter by Francis Pharcellus Church~

It helped alot, and our talk and the time we shared together, made her think alot about what we hold true, private and dear to out hearts. To this very day, and as recently as this year, she told me this, "I Believe"!
I love my little girl; who will be 19 soon....

I'm glad you had that time with your daughter! And in glad she believes.

Why do some people have to be so cruel and make fun of others? It drives me crazy!
