Best news first; I’m getting Sarah for the weekend 27th , the evening we have Christmas Night here in town.
Got an email from my brother yesterday saying it was ok for us to pick her up Friday after school;)
I posted about Christmas Night last year, but this time it’s getting even better with Sarah too;)

Now back to the catchphrase, about something that has been bugging me for years now!! But I want you to understand it is not something that any of you have ever done to me!!

Fact #1) I like to make people happy, some of you might know that.
Problem is, that I don’t expect anything in return.

Fact#2) I like to do something for other people, some of you might know that.
Problem is, that I don’t expect anything in return.

So how to explain this with out sounding like a self righteous jerk or someone angling for approval….

Well here goes;
My latest project in trying to keep my hands flexible has been making SPN bracelets.
I put the word out in a Comm. And I got more than 25 replies from people that I know and some I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting before.
I made the bracelets - the last three went into the post today;) - but what the problem is comes here…some people in my rl asks me what I expect to get out of this!!!!!! My answer is;” nothing, except making people happy”. And they don’t believe me, but thinks that everything has to be done so that you get something out of it, preferably something material.
I offered the bracelets for free because I thought that some one might like them. It took me a long time to put them out outside my flist, but I think they were pretty enough to give it a try.
What I have gotten from this is; new friends, some of you gave me kind gifts like paid lj and graphics and postcards and some of you made a donation to the cancer research.
I’m very happy for all of that, but I would have made the same bracelets even if none of you had done that.

I’ve always been like that liking to make people happy, and seeing them happy is what I get out of it.

So when I send you postcards, small gifts, emails and stuff it is because I want to. Not because I have to and not because you then should feel obliged to send me anything. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love all the gifts and cards I get from you people, because I do.
It just mean that I don’t want you to feel guilty if I send something to you.
♥love you all♥

Tusind tak søde jeg blir helt forlegen.
Jeg elsker at give, derfor kan jeg ikke købe julegaver i god tid, så giver jeg dem bare og må købe nye;)
♥krammer♥
